“Welcome to The Spiritual Forum. Whether you attend in person or listen to our podcast, here you will experience people who are very real, with no pretenses. Some of us are committed to the spiritual path, actively examining ourselves, and doing our best to put our spiritual understanding into practice in our everyday lives. Others are just observing. We’re all a work in progress – learning to become the people we were created to be as we move from suffering, to being empowered, to simply being. The stories you hear will inspire you to grow. And when any one of us grows, we change the world, because we are all connected. Come and experience The Spiritual Forum for yourself, and see what arises in and for you. Wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome.”

– Rev. Carol Saunders


We gather together for facilitated dialogue on spiritual topics

recognizing that Spirit speaks through all people, not just the minister.

We engage in 

authentic conversations 

sharing how we integrate spirituality into every aspect of our lives – our relationships, finances, work, and responses to world events.

We learn practical ways to 

live more powerfully

by looking deeply at ourselves and learning what others are doing to live more closely aligned with their Divine potential.

People grow in extraordinary ways here.

Come and share your journey, your experience or your understanding.

Or just listen and see what arises in you and for you.

Our doors and hearts are wide open to people of all generations, affiliations and orientations.

Everyone is welcome!
