Shared Mystical Truth. Although the world's great religious traditions have obvious outer (or exoteric) differences, one of our goals is to demonstrate that they also share an inner (or esoteric) Truth testified to by their mystics.
New Sacred Worldview. We are also working to lay the foundations for a new worldview in which the Truth realized by the mystics and the truths of modern science can be seen as compatible ways of understanding the same underlying Reality.
Community of Practitioners. To help individual seekers, we maintain a community of spiritual practitioners who wish to follow the teachings and practices of the mystics of all the great traditions, presented in generic, contemporary terms.

Welcome to the Center for Sacred Sciences, a spiritual organization based in Eugene, Oregon, USA. The teachings at the Center draw from the teachings of the mystics of all the great traditions, all of whom testify to a common, universal truth.
Our goal at the Center is not only to help individual seekers but also to foster a new world view in which both spiritual and scientific truths can be seen as different but complementary ways of describing a single underlying reality. To these ends, we offer the following services and resources:
There is a public service in Eugene at 11 am on most Sunday mornings, which usually consists of a talk by one of the center teachers followed by questions and answers. See our public schedule and directions to the service.
