Adult Learning & Gathering (Virtually)

As each of us navigates this unprecedented crisis, we want you to know that we are here for you.  Amidst so much that remains unknown, now, more than ever, NSCI intends to serve as a source of comfort and guidance, inspiration and even joy. Remember that despite our being physically separated, none of us are alone. We are doing our very best to be "here" for each other, in keeping with our mission. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us to let us know if you are in need of support. We will do our very best to work as a community to take care of each other and minimize disconnection and fear in the ways that we can. As a sacred community bound together by the highest principles, we choose to elevate the power of hope, the power of love and the power of community, and in doing so, assure that together we are stronger than anything that threatens.


We are using our NSCI Facebook page as a central "hub for gathering." If you have not done so already, please "Like" our page.


Here's our lineup of classes and virtual engagement opportunities for the upcoming week. Check our website and Facebook for continual updates.
