WHO WE ARE

Althea Center for Engaged Spirituality is 100!

Althea Center for Engaged Spirituality is proud to celebrate 100 years of believing in the human capacity for enlightenment, and our primary intention is to elevate the spiritual awareness of our entire human community for freedom of all beings and the betterment of the world. The Althea Center leads, hosts, and facilitates inspiring experiences, engaging programs, and public events that foster diversity, integrity, and an inclusive approach to spiritual practice and mystical awakening.

More recent Althea programs and community involvements have included the Women’s Homelessness Initiative and Mariposa, its LGBTQ+ program. In addition to the many classes and other offerings for its members and the public, the Althea Center is currently home to three non-profits: St. Francis Center, Sisters of Color United for Education, and Spirit of the Sun. These non-profits each address needs in our community such as homelessness, food insecurity, indigenous/native youth and elders, and community health and education. The Althea Center for Engaged Spirituality does not discriminate when offering sacred space and freely open our doors to identities usually cast out of many mainstream religious places, such as community-based group meetings (gender, sexual orientation, generational, etc.), Alcoholics Anonymous, occult/moon rituals, yoga, therapists for LGBTQ+ individuals, midwifery/doula training, etc.

The Althea Center for Engaged Spirituality, for decades known as the First Divine Science Church of Denver, has been a foundational part of the greater Capitol Hill community for 100 years. Over the past century, it has been a spiritual home for thousands, who have come from all walks of life and religious/spiritual backgrounds. This historic building was the Mother Church of the Divine Science denomination and also housed its divinity school, the Colorado College of Divine Science, which was incorporated back in 1898.

RADICALLY WELCOMING ALL. 

At Althea we do things differently. Rooted in a philosophy of Oneness - God is All - we believe that each person must chart and weather their own unique spiritual journey. In our experience of Spirit as oneness and connection we uncover our gifts, find peace, have fun, and help make the world a better place for all.

 

We are not a conventional church nor even a typical center. We are a dynamic, diverse, evolving community, committed to supporting, inspiring and challenging all who seek to embrace an expansive way of being

and a joyful experience of life. 

 

We offer a Sunday 10:30 am service and many classes, workshops and special events throughout the week - from yoga to meditation, spiritual psychology to chanting, music and movie nights.
