Mission & Guiding Principles

“Now go be who you are.”

Numa Soul Center for Spiritual Transformation is a space for healing, empowerment, authentic living, and beloved community. We contribute to the evolution of sacred consciousness through inspiration, education, and in service to all living beings and our planet. 

Our Mission:

Numa Soul Center for Spiritual Transformation is an expansive interfaith/interspiritual ministry serving the sacred to the secular. We celebrate both the diversity and unity found in our shared humanity and offer guidance and support to those who’ve been persecuted by religion and toxic, harmful ideologies. Sacred activism is the backbone of our organization. We believe that science is real, Black lives matter, LGBTQ+ and women’s rights are human rights, no human is illegal, love is love and silence is violence. 

We offer community programs, workshops, individual coaching sessions and hand-selected products for personal and spiritual development and care. 

You are important to us. In this space, you are held gently and offered the highest degree of service, complete confidentiality, and unconditional love. We are here for you—mind, body and spirit. 

Our Vision:

We are committed to building a world based on our highest social and spiritual aspirations—one that is just, kind, equitable, radically compassionate and rooted in unconditional love.

Numa Soul’s Guiding Principles and Beliefs:

Numa Soul is honored to share our guiding principles and beliefs with you. These provide the foundation for our ministry and guide us in our teachings and programs. Spirituality is not static; it is ebbing and growing as humanity evolves toward a higher level of consciousness. Numa Soul is committed to regularly reviewing these principles and beliefs to ensure they accurately reflect who we are and why we do what we do.

  1. Interfaith/Interspiritual Ministry: The term “interfaith” honors the elements of truth and wisdom in all world religions and traditions. The term “interspiritual” honors the elements of truth and wisdom found outside of organized religions and traditions. Because interfaith/interspiritual believes in the sacredness of all beings, we honor humanity and welcome seekers, agnostics, humanists, atheists, and all religious or spiritual "outliers".

  2. Affirming & Inclusive Ministry: Individuals of every race, color, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, belief system or lack of, are welcomed, affirmed and celebrated here.

  3. Healing Ministry: Data consistently shows that people are leaving organized religion in large numbers. Many are seeking non-traditional, more inclusive, dogma-free spiritual experiences. Deconstructing from toxic beliefs which are at the root of religious trauma is the first critical step toward a fulfilling and authentic life. Spiritual care and companionship are essential in that process. Our highly qualified and experienced spiritual care practitioners and licensed therapists will be utilized to assist those on their journey to healing.  

  4. Spirituality: Spirituality begins with the individual and the union of their soul for an authentic and sacred human experience. The commitment to soulwork is what determines one’s ability to be a catalyst for love and change in the world. Soulwork is the work the individual does to lessen the impact of trauma, negative experiences, or conditioned behaviors that do not serve the highest good of the individual and the world at large. 

  5. Sacred Service & Activism: Sacred service—selfless service or volunteerism - is an important element of soulwork. Sacred activism, which is actionable advocacy for the marginalized, is also an integral part of soulwork. Both are vital for personal and spiritual development.

  6. Known by many names: While some religious and spiritual traditions identify the Source of all things as God, many others have different names and understanding of this Divine source of mystery, universal energy and all-encompassing presence. Because we lack the capacity or language to fully understand or adequately describe this universal energy, we will not debate “who or what God is.” Debating the unanswerable distracts from the work we are called to do, and too often is used as a tactic by those who seek to influence and control others.

  7. Spirituality begins at home: Communities of like-minds can be a stalwart for humans who seek companionship. First and foremost, however, is the importance of establishing a personal spiritual practice that anchors the individual to their own journey. Each of us is uniquely made and our spirituality should reflect that. This also ensures that a person’s spirituality cannot be hijacked by a religious or spiritual experience that seeks to control their beliefs or how they express their truth. By establishing a sound practice through prayer, meditation, journaling, ancestral wisdom, altar work, accountability partners, nature work, study or any spiritual practice that uplifts, enriches and strengthens, we take control of our own spirituality. This is how it was always meant to be.
