"How will we reinvent the human and move into the only process that matters: our authentic maturation as a species?
Only by establishing ourselves within the unfolding cosmos as a whole can we begin to discover the meaning and significance of ordinary things."
Welcome, and thank you for visiting Ruah online.
We hope that our website highlights the variety of ritual and learning opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our community on this site, or join us some Sunday morning. We would love to greet you and share with you our journey of exploration and action.
At the beginning of the new millennium we see that a proportionately small group of human beings has attempted to hoard the blessing. It has become clear that justice must be extended not just within the human realm, but beyond it to all beings and to Earth herself. So an Earth-based spirituality must include a spirituality of liberation that challenges us into right relationship with all other creatures.
We are a consensus-based and volunteer-run organization. We work together, sharing our experiences and insights, to create rituals that express and deepen our spirituality. We have a monthly in-depth discussion of a topic related to the spiritual theme we have chosen for the year, and share an annual week-end retreat to further our community relationships and deepen our spiritual life.
We gather for ritual on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month, September through June, at:
Ralph Thornton Centre
765 Queen St. E. (2 blocks east of Broadview) (map)
We also host a discussion group on the evening of the 2nd Sunday in a member's home; write for details.
