An Interfaith Educational Society Serving the Inland Empire
Mission: Within the Sacred Circle has been called to serve the multiple faith traditions of the Inland Empire Communities (Redlands, San Bernardino, Riverside, etc.)—through education, ritual, liturgy, seasonal celebrations, cross-cultural community building, affordable psycho-spiritual care, charity work and environmental advocacy.
Purpose: We will accomplish our Mission by establishing a brick-and-mortar location in Redlands in which people of all religious traditions can come together to learn and worship—in both our weekly evening services (TBD), seasonal celebrations; and Interfaith meditations, prayer and scripture study; provide psycho-spiritual care on a sliding scale (specializing in helping marginalized groups such as Veterans and the Unhoused), and work closely with local charity organizations. We will invite various religious leaders from around the community to partner in our weekly services. We want to become an integral part of the spiritual landscape of the Inland Empire, not to replace existing ecclesiastical institutions, but by providing a safe space for fellowship and dialogue between people of different cultures and traditions—creating compassion and deep understanding.
Vision: Our ultimate vision is to break down the boundaries that separate people. Religion’s core purpose is to foster love for thy neighbor and the individuation of the Self through helping people take charge of their spiritual growth. Through applying a Archetypal lens to our liturgy, educational classes, services, and care provided—we intend to strip away dogma and simply focus on the core principles of all faith-traditions=the loving and spiritual betterment of humanity. And ultimately help heal the world.
