The Ethos of Spaceforsoul
Spaceforsoul is a community that is rooted in the progressive Christian tradition but also draws on the wealth of wisdom and inspiration in other spiritual traditions. It acknowledges that there are many paths which lead to the Divine and many ways of expressing our unique spirituality. It honours all faiths as responses to the Divine and is open to learning from genuine inter-faith dialogue.
It is open, inclusive and holistic. It recognises the value of personal spiritual experience and emphasises the primacy of love and compassion. It values difference and diversity and believes in the equality of all people, irrespective of gender, race, culture, sexual orientation and spiritual tradition.
Our ethos also reflects the person-centred philosophy of the American humanistic psychologist, Carl Rogers, with its essentially positive view of human nature, its affirmation of our dignity and worth as human beings and its fundamental belief in our own inner resources and wisdom.
