Blackbirds Rising Logo

There are audio and video pieces, a spiritual book club and webinars – all on the themes of personal empowerment through inner exploration, insight and daily spiritual experience.

According to a study conducted by Pew Research Center in 2012 , one fifth of the US public and a third of adults under the age of 30 are reportedly unaffiliated with any religion, although many identify as being spiritual in some way. Of these religiously unaffiliated Americans, 37% classify themselves as “spiritual but not religious,” while 68°/o say they do believe in God, and 58% feel “a deep connection to the earth.”

There is no question that many people are leaving the conventional Sunday service tradition for a variety of reasons. Nevertheless, many miss the positive aspects of having an ongoing spiritual connection to the divine and to other, like-minded people.

There are also many people today who still visit their traditional church community, some weekly, and some less frequently, but 
are called to add a deeper embodiment and practice of its principles and teachings.

The Blackbirds Rising community provides an alternative for such people; a proven path that deepens and expands their spiritual lives in a way that affords them respect, non-judgment, listening hearts and a more practical integration with their busy modern lifestyles. And the integration of regular inspirational, portable online content delivers just the right combination of “high touch” and “high tech” for today’s modern spiritual explorers.

“Blackbirds Rising embraces and teaches well-established “spiritual but not religious” philosophies, where the deeper meaning at the core of all scriptures and faith perspectives is honored – the perfect blending of changeless ancient wisdom and practical, modern spiritual living.
