In 2017, the Center of Universal Light (CUL or simply “COOL”) in Cottonwood, Arizona, was founded as an Inter-spiritual Oneness Center whose sole (soul?) purpose is sharing our spiritual journeys and providing all a safe, loving place to discover, find deeper meaning in and to share theirs.
Our Gatherings are a buffet of beliefs, some call it the Baskin-Robbins of spiritual traditions, religions, cultures, and beliefs. Why? Because we affirm that there is truth in all journeys. We are guided by a “Council” rather than a Board of Directors because we take action only when we have a full consensus, not simply a majority vote. Meet our Council Members on the right.
Since that time, we have been on a journey of mutual respect, love, appreciation, and positive expectation for the future of our community, our country and the planet through small groups, special interest groups such as drum circles, full moon fire ceremonies, sisters’ circles, book discussion groups, concerts, and more.
It’s my personal mission to help you connect with your Inner Light as you follow your own path, and to help you see that you are perfect just where you are.
My sincerest desire is that you will share your journey with us!
