The purpose of Shalem Center in Columbus, Ohio is to promote healing and growth for individuals, groups, and organizations. This growth is understood in the larger context of spiritual purpose realized through intentional development of consciousness (of self, others, the natural world, and the divine). Psychotherapy and spiritual mentoring services are a primary means towards fulfillment of this purpose. Each year Shalem offers programs integrating spirituality in daily life experience.

A primary focus of projects and programs is interfaith or interspiritual. Whether providing wedding services, or other life transition ceremonies (such as funerals or baby blessings), or whether creating educational workshops, an interspiritual perspective is maintained.

Spirituality is understood broadly to include all religions, faiths, and paths as expressions of human yearning for realization of divine nature. Interspiritual work is a primary focus at Shalem Center as Divine Unity is recognized in all religions and spiritual paths. Programs and services reflect this inclusive approach. Read less

Elizabeth was marvelous in any and every way possible. We wanted a very specific type of service and she was very open to fitting out needs into the service. We love her.
