Our Radically Inclusive Mission

The Center – Philadelphia is available and accessible to all people:

The Center is open to all persons, no matter how they identify, including without regard to age, race, ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic or marital status, physical or mental ability, immigration status, and spiritual tradition.

The Center is an incubator for people from all walks of life, spiritual traditions, academic disciplines, and artistic expressions to create circles of human fellowship that generate synergy (justice, peace, love) and a life force that changes the world.
