I founded TCS out of a desire to create a space that would invite the seeker into a safe space where one could find resources and build community to fuel the spiritual emergence process. In order to use language that pointed toward this process without risking excluding anyone who may not be familiar with or resonate with the term spiritual emergence, I chose to highlight the word curiosity.
Curiosity is an innate trait with which everyone can resonate. Curiosity serves our learning and our development in myriad ways from the time we are born throughout our lives. Curiosity is an opportunity for infinite growth. It leads without authority or expectation and its pursuit inevitably turns up more questions. Curiosity is a choice. The ways in which one follows one’s curiosity will impact one’s findings and one’s journey along the way. Curiosity is contagious. Once one shares a curiosity with another, a spark is ignited in that other that then invites the other into an exploration. In this way, curiosity builds community and through the conversations that ensue, our capacity as a collective is enhanced and evolved.
The mission of TCS is to (a) create a clearing that celebrates the vitality of our inherent curiosity and invite genuine inquiry, (b) gracefully reveal each individual’s Divine signature by enhancing intuitive and relational reflections, and (c) inspire a harmonious community that creatively stimulates universal transformation. The vision of TCS reads as follows:
The Curious Spirit will honor the journey of the seeker by offering resources that encourage transcendent personal exploration to serve collective evolution.
As a community on this co-creative quest, we will assist each other in uncovering our highest callings, overcoming our resistances, and eliciting our most authentic self-expressions.
With the graceful guidance of our inquisitive hearts, informed by the wisdom of those who walk with similar questions, we will invite the spirit that unites us. As this spirit reveals itself, we will uncover the ever-unfolding, boundless truths of reality. (TCS, n.d., Our Vision section)
In addition to psychotherapy and coaching sessions, TCS offers community gatherings, workshops, retreats, and reflective spaces. In the future, it will also extend opportunities for collaborative research. TCS is a burgeoning concept. As principal of the organization, I intend for it to remain curious about itself so that, in alignment with its vision, we may forge initiatives with individuals and organizations that are similarly motivated toward catalyzing human potential through harnessing the energy of our inherent curiosity.
