As you are: “good”, “bad”, indifferent; vibrant, exhausted, blah…
Your authentic self is welcome here. You’re perfect just the way you are.

Having experienced being fully seen, heard, received, thus feeling connected, refreshed and enriched.

What it is:
An oasis in the midst of every day life.

What you do:
Share your authentic self (as much as you’re willing), listen with your heart, breathe in Love, receive it, then share it with the group — including yourself.

The content…
 1. A process called “Awesome Women” In just three minutes, we are seen, appreciated, acknowledged. It’s a chance to be refreshingly truthful, to receive loving feedback, to once again stand in our own power.

2. A sweet yet potent process evolved from Kything (an ancient form of prayer), a spiritual version of Master Mind, and Miracle Circles (from Year of Miracles) that allows us to ask for what we want in our lives, open our souls to the possibilities of Life, and to receive fully.

Sunday gatherings are held in the Community Room at Tucson City Council Ward 6 Office
3202 E 1st St. Tucson, AZ 85716

Next Sacred Space Gathering

Sunday May 26, 2019

Small Groups Sunday

​​Sacred Space is a secular and interfaith community in Tucson for personal and community growth where all are welcome to gather weekly for inspiration from the world’s spiritual traditions, varied local musicians and speakers, and community connection. Coupling contemplative wisdom with research-based practices, Sacred Space also offers small groups and classes, all with the aim of bringing together inner resources to drive social change.
The Sacred Space mission is to cultivate compassion and be a source of public renewal and contemplative education so that we can increase our capacity to work together toward collaborative solutions. This work is based in the
current global movement for building compassionate community which is dedicated to generating understanding and cooperation between people of all backgrounds and beliefs.
