Introduction to Integral Approach to Spiritual Development (via Zoom) – Wednesday, September 28, 7-8 PM
As people embark on a journey of self-discovery, they often reach these “in-between” places. Their old understandings of reality don’t work anymore; yet the journey forward can feel lonely as they leave a place that felt like home. This is an introductory session to spark your interest for the more in-depth program in January.

Sinsinawa Mound Center is excited to welcome visitors and guests once again. All visitors to Sinsinawa Mound are to check in with the receptionist for a temperature screening and show proof of vaccination upon arrival. View a list of upcoming events online or by calling (608) 748-4411.
