Many of us find that our spiritual practices become richer and deeper experiences when we practice with a community. We may practice at a church, synagogue, mosque, sangha, or other spiritual circle. We may practice through attending retreats and staying in touch with other retreatants afterwards. We may practice by taking e-courses and engaging with others in their online Practice Circles.

Community-building around practices is essential to our vision at Spirituality & Practice. Our website visitors from around the world are practicing together with our recommended resources for spiritual journeys, through our School of Spiritual Life, and through our special projects on Elder Spirituality, Reverence, and Practicing Democracy.

We are grateful to the following people who have made financial gifts in 2021 to support these programs. They are our Practicing Partners. Join them here.
