Does the following sound like you?
Now that you're a parent, you're finding that you'd really like your child/ren to have some sort of meaningful spiritual context that reinforces the values that are important to you, but none of the religions or spiritual paths feel like a good fit for you and your family. So this part of life goes unaddressed. It's not that your family life suffers, per se, but you sense that if there was some form of spirituality in the mix, or even a spiritually like-minded community to participate in with other like-minded families, that this would add even more richness to your child's life and to your experience as parents. You do believe that something larger connects us all, and you may think of it as any of many names - God, nature, energy, spirit, The Universe, etc. You are very open to having more spirituality in your family's life, but you just haven't been able to figure out how.
If this description fits you, then Sacred House is a solution! Here's how you can participate...
Sign up for the 8-Session "Recipe for Spirituality for Parents & Families" phone class...
This phone class is tailored to bring a sense of spirituality into your family life in a way that fits just right. Eight sessions guide you through a simple process to clarify your own personal set of spiritual beliefs and practices, and to implement them in your daily life.
Here's what you can expect when you're done with the class...
• You'll have lots of ideas for how you and your children can have experiences to feel part of "something larger that connects us all".
This is that feeling of the presence of God (or whatever you like to call it), and feeling it in a way that fits for you. For parents, this ultimately means feeling more peace, happiness, meaning, support and trust in life. For children, this means more joy, love and a sense of being special in the world while respecting that the rest of the world is special too.
• You'll have your own set of clearly identified spiritual beliefs.
You'll have identified the specific names or words that you use when referring to "something larger", and you'll have identified the truths that are true to you about this something larger. If you have a spouse in the mix, you will have identified your individual spiritual beliefs, and if they are different, you will have explored how they can go together.
• You'll have your own set of spiritual practices tailor-made for your family.
These practices help you and your family connect with something larger more regularly, along with creating opportunities for special activities that have meaning for your children in a way that fit with your beliefs & values. The practices can be of your own making or they can be from already-established religions or spiritual traditions. They will be in a style that really fits you and they will be integrated into your daily life.
• You'll have your own clearly identified spiritual code to live by.
Every religion or spiritual tradition provides a set of guidelines to live by (The Ten Commandments is a good example). You'll identify your family's own code, based on your spiritual beliefs. Your code guides you to make lifestyle choices that lead to a more meaningful and fulfilled life.
• You'll be living with more purpose and passion.
If something larger connects us all, we are each unique divine expressions of it. Your passions, interests, gifts and purpose in life are your unique divine expression. The class guides you to identify these and to enjoy and express them more in your daily life.
• You'll have a community of people to gather with around spirituality.

Attend In-Person Gathers near you...
Sacred House is an official worldwide community that organizes Gathers for people who believe in something larger that connects us all, and at the same time are not drawn to participate in a specific religion or spiritual path. Every Sacred House Gather rests on the foundation that there are as many definitions of spirituality as there are people, and when we come together, we can clarify even more about our own spiritual beliefs and practices by learning about the spiritual beliefs and practices of others. This is a special community of a group of others who, just like you, care about having a sense of spirituality in their lives.
