Views from the Lorian Community

Lorian’s Purpose

Our mission is to advance the experience of wholeness in the world and in ourselves through an incarnated spirituality. 

Our Core Values:

We affirm the sovereignty of each person as a Sacred source of creativity and partnership.

We acknowledge the existence of spiritual dimensions and their contribution to the wholeness of the world.

We empower new ways for the human community to engage in the sacred partnership of person and planet.

We inspire a culture of love and hope that honors and enlivens all beings.

   Working with Lorian has been the best move I’ve ever made in terms of spiritual education. It has deepened my spiritual confidence and enabled me to find a much deeper connection with the Sacred. My faith is supported by insight, as opposed to wishful thinking or blind belief. It’s had an impact on my work, my relationships, my personal well-being, and my sense of purpose in life.”DP, Environmental Developer, MI

   I have experienced a shift from long-held and mostly unconscious perceptions of spirituality as a destination place, or a step-by-step process that must be climbed in order to become whole, or on searching for spiritual understanding or transcendence or an energetic state to be attained somewhere “out there” to one of awakening to my being here in wholeness in this body, in this incarnation, in this present time and space, and yes, in this ecology. I now understand that my life is my world work. Projects may flow in and out, but essentially the life I live is my gift to the world.” —S.S., MI, Spiritual Coach
