Celebration Circle is an inclusive, multi-faith community with a creative approach to spirituality. We gather to honor and nurture the Sacred in ourselves, each other and all Creation.
Locations for meetings after Covid-19
We gather to remind ourselves and each other of who we truly are – and who we are capable of becoming.
We believe there is a powerful New Story being born in the midst of our dominant culture. It’s an amazing story of love, peace, sustainability and inter-connection. We choose to nurture this Story by incorporating our personal insights with those offered by the major faiths and wisdom traditions: Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, Taoist, and Pagan, as well as contemporary science, psychology, and the Recovery Movement.
We gather to experience our deep connections to ourselves, each other and the Web of Life through creative and co-creative expressions of spirituality. Our gatherings take a variety of forms, but share a common goal: to foster the process of conscious evolution through the sacred arts.
All of us – including you - have something valuable to contribute to the co-creation and narration of this exciting New Story!
Celebration Circle began on January 19, 1992 when Rudi Harst, Zet Baer and a few like minded friends gathered at the Harbor, a small building on the outskirts of Brackenridge Park, in San Antonio, Texas. The people who gathered that Sunday morning came from a variety of faith traditions, but shared a common longing to create new expressions of spiritual understanding. The group continued to meet weekly, and Celebration Circle received official recognition of 501(c)(3) tax exempt status on March 24, 1997.
Celebration Circle has gathered in a variety of locations over the years, and we have been visited by many friends. Since our inception, we have had no membership requirements, believing that the designation of members/non-members creates a sense of division contrary to the consciousness of Oneness we choose to foster.
Celebration Circle is led by a Council of Stewards who guide us and consult on all major decisions. They are personally invested in the Circle’s growth and committed to full participation in fundraising, management, support and the work required to maintain our organization. Those currently serving as stewards are:
Alexis Bierman // Michele Brinkley, Secretary // Tam Corbette
Krista Delgado, Chair // Betty Franklin
Karl Franklin // Maria Garza // KC James, Treasurer
Edward "Butch" Sagebiel // Angel Santiago // Chuck Squier
Our COUNCIL OF STEWARDS, the governing body of the Celebration Circle meets monthly (sometimes but not always) on the third (sometimes but not always) Sunday afternoon, 2:00pm. Contact us for more information if you are interested in attending a meeting, working on a committee or serving on Council at email@example.com.
