Sophia Collective: Healing Circles Series
About Sophia Collective:
The Mission of Sophia Collective is to uncover and provide access to hidden wisdom through spiritual counseling on various aspects of human experience, and to open corridors to feeling, hearing, seeing and knowing the Spirit. To accomplish its mission, Sophia Collective creates and conducts events promoting respect for diverse spiritual, religious, and cultural beliefs and perspectives. Sophia Collective provides educational services that involve teaching, research, writing, consultations, speaking engagements, workshop presentations, conferences, seminars and other educational formats. Sophia Collective promotes cultural aesthetics and artistic creativity by providing original artistic designs, exhibitions and public performances of artistic works, which are termed "works of and for the Spirit."
Sophia Collective believes that Spirit is all-encompassing personality that interacts with humanity humanity on every level. Spirit speaks to us in silence, in the routines of harmony and dissonance, and in the depths of chaos. Spirit encompasses and is concerned with every facet of human existence. Spirit is ever present with and in us, and infinitely loving toward us. The world, its universe, and all that exists was conceived of by Spirit and rests in Spirit's infinite embrace. In the sacred dimension of Spirit all life exists eternally. When we lose our way in life, Spirit is there to lift us and guide us into the light again and again.
