The Sophia Institute



The purpose of The Sophia Institute is to be a source and a beacon in today’s world for

profound transformation and unlimited spiritual growth. Our core work—retreats, seminars,

forums and special events, led by renowned thought and spiritual leaders—offers ways for

living more conscious, wisdom-filled and mindful lives. It ignites the creative, inspirational

and transformative energies that live within all of us.


The Sophia Institute’s work is centered on the rise of the feminine, cultivating wisdom, and

mindfulness for a more just, sustainable and flourishing world. Our initiative Social Justice Racial Equity Collaborativehas launched an ongoing series, Living Your Truth, which addresses the challenges of racism and brings about new understanding for a more socially just and equitable community. Our second initiative, Higher Ground—Rising to Meet our Environmental Crisis, addresses our relationship with the Earth and climate change. Both are working collaboratively with people from all walks of life, including nonprofit professionals, spiritual and thought leaders, scientists, artists and policymakers.


The work of The Sophia Institute affects not just the individual but families, communities and workplaces. We have the great privilege of helping to usher in transformational change—a more just, sustainable, environmentally aware and conscious community.


We are living in a time of profound transformation, when a new consciousness is trying to break into the world. We think of it as a spiritual consciousness, one that carries the feminine and joins it with the masculine, and out of that union, a consciousness is forming that is more egalitarian, just, compassionate, more empowered and transformative. It honors the web of life, the unity within our diversity, the sacredness in each of our lives, and in Mother Earth herself. It is a consciousness that awakens the wisdom of the heart and allows grace to enter our lives—allows us to find a new way of being that honors our unity and our distinction and to tap into what is true.


Two of our country’s greatest thought leaders will be leading workshops at the Sophia Institute this month. Caroline Myss, bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality, health, energy medicine, and the science of medical intuition, comes to Sophia Institute on March 9 and 10. Joining her will be British author, religious scholar and teacher of mystic traditions Andrew Harvey. Their workshop will focus on how to reconnect with our deeper selves, with each other and with the Earth—reconnections that allow us to move beyond our illusions and respond courageously. 


Marianne Williamson, internationally acclaimed author, speaker and activist,will bring her Love America Tour to the Sophia Institute on March 23 and 24. This event is being held as a two-hour session in other cities across the country, but Williamson agreed to expand it to include a day-long Saturday seminar at Sophia Institute. The seminar will focus on how a revolution in consciousness paves the way to both personal and national renewal.
