Thanks to our sister site My Green Lake for this story.

A new spiritual center and community space is coming to the neighborhood.  Green Lake Spiritual Center, located at 125 NE 52nd St, is opening its doors this Sunday (August 1, 2010), 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.

India Holden, who co-directs the center with her husband Steven Holden, says the center is “loosely organized around spirituality, not any one religion, and is designed as a community center.”  The space will be made available to the community to use free of charge, although donations will be accepted.

“People can do session work like healing work, counseling, meetings, workshops, support groups, meditation, classes, sat sangs, etc.,” says India.  “Really anything. We want to support people in bringing their gifts into the community and provide the space for that.”

India will also be teaching several programs at the center, including an Inner Wisdom class, Saturday guided meditations and Sunday morning spiritual explorations focused on Bhakti talk and conversation.

On September 5, 2010, spiritual teacher Matt Kahn will be visiting the space.  In November, India will be holding a party there, celebrating the release of her book ‘You’re an Adventurer on the Cutting-Edge of Yourself.’

India says that the opening of the center is the result of a vision that she had.  “This,” she says, “is the dream of my life becoming reality.”

All are welcome at Sunday’s grand opening party.  A schedule of the day’s events can be found here.
