Grace for real life. Practice for real change.
Collective helps thousands of religious misfits find common paths of spiritual progress, communal connection, and human contribution by keeping spirituality simple, connectional, and practical.
For many of us, religion has come to lack integrity and credibility. Instead of the promised certainty and satisfaction, we end up confused by jargon and turned off by hypocrisy. We can no longer pretend beliefs and force behaviors just to fit in at a church. Nonetheless, we’re still drawn in by the mystery of something more, be that God as we understand, a community in which we belong, or contributing to a common good greater than ourselves. Where do we take this longing?
What if your spiritual practice meant developing as a person - growing in your connection with yourself, your neighbors, and the world. Not a separate, perfect “spiritual life”, but a formed, integrated, connected and contributing life. Like many traditions, we call these connections God. Whatever your language, tradition or understanding , we want to experience and develop that together in ways that make all of us more loving - intentionally moving our consciousness from self to neighborhood, and from neighborhood to world. Love past self and past tribe.
For over a decade Collective has simplified a communal path we call the school of love: learning and practicing unconditional belonging and transformative love. We want to accept ourselves and others, and change all of us for the better. It’s an invitation to step into this mystery of more, with others, develop your self, and feel a deep sense of practical value from your spirituality.
