We are grateful to all our visitors and donors as we continue to develop and expand Spirituality & Practice:
Because of you, we envision a global circle of people vitally engaged with the wisdom and practices of the spiritual traditions, who are thereby equipped to live deeper and fuller lives and to serve their communities and the wider world.
We invite you to help sustain and grow Spirituality & Practice by joining one of our Circles of Support.
— Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Co-Directors.
- Angels Circle: To use filmmaking terms, an "angel investor" provides capital for a project, coming in after friends and family and before venture capital and distributor money. But we're a nonprofit organization, so our Angels are more like guardian angels — benevolent beings who have our best interests in mind and through their generosity take special care of us. ($1000 or more)
- Producers Circle: The producer of a film is the person who makes it happen. S/he gives you the wherewithal to pull together a team, find an audience, pay the rent. As Spirituality & Practice plans to expand our outreach and initiate new projects, we need producers. ($500 - $999)
- Directors Circle: The director brings creative energy to a project. S/he determines the distinctive look of the film, chooses the cast, recruits the crew. Directors develop the vision of a project, and as Spirituality & Practice moves in new directions, we need directors to help us fulfill our creative vision. ($100 - $499)
- Actors Circle: The actors are the up-front people, the ones who take the message of the movie to the audience. There are many actors at Spirituality & Practice — people who participate in e-courses and online retreats, those who regularly read reviews and try new practices, those who email our pages or share them on Facebook and, most importantly, our financial partners and donors. ($50 - $99)
- Crew Circle: Anyone who has watched the closing credits for a movie knows what a team effort it is. For every one on the screen, there are many more behind-the-scenes. This is true for Spirituality & Practice as well. Every person who visits and every donation, no matter what the size, is valuable to us and appreciated. ($25 - $49 or other amount)
We invite you to prayerfully consider how much Spirituality & Practice means to your spiritual journey and which of our Circles of Support you can join this day, this month, or this year.
