Sophia's Well, located in the beautiful foothill communities of Amador County, California is a Wisdom & Well Center designed to serve the spiritual and holistic healing and wholeness needs of the local community.
Previous association was with the Light of Christ Community Church, headquartered in Tahlequah, OK. As LCCC is no longer authorizing church charters, Sophia's Well is now established as an Inner-faith (esoteric) spiritual community. We aspire to a community of spiritual partners, an inclusive inter-spiritual philosophy, that emphasizes inner psycho-spiritual development, and embraces diverse wisdom traditions and esoteric philosophies, including metaphysics, spiritual sciences, and holistic healing therapies for body, soul, and spirit.
SOPHIA'S WELL has an approach that places a strong emphasis on quality of character, personal and global transformation, embodied spirituality, holistic healing and wellness, community service, and ethical living. As such, The Well serves as a Center for WISDOM & WELLNESS.
Rev. Patsy Walker Fine, minister and founding spiritual director of SOPHIA'S WELL, aims to serve the local spiritually independent population by providing holistic spiritual care through sacred education and training, holistic healing and contemplative bodywork, pastoral care, spiritual direction and mentoring, and celebrant services for those special life events. Rev. Patsy maintains an affiliation with the International Council of Community Churches.
Many today are on an independent or personal spiritual path, where they no longer choose to give their authority over to a guru or religious institution. They use their awakened consciousness to learn from many different teachers and traditions, and seek their own Inner Guidance to create an individualized path of spiritual growth and development (known as "initiation" in the esoteric philosophy). This Path of the Soul is humanity's natural evolutionary development which requires individuals to have their own conscious understanding and experience of spiritual realities rather than rely on the experiences of others.
The services at The Well are suited particularly for those who are on an Independent path of spiritual development, a Path of Soul; a student of Esoteric Psychology or Ageless Wisdom; or are on an "Inner-Faith" journey. Many who are so inclined may include,
- Those who are "spiritual but not religious."
- Those who desire a more inclusive, inter-spiritual, multi-faith or trans-religious approach.
- Those who are hungry for a more progressive and inclusive religious experience and are ready to break out of the traditional box.
- Those who prefer a more metaphysical, psycho-spiritual, mystical or contemplative approach to transformation of consciousness
- And those who have awakened to their Inner Authority and are taking responsibility for their spiritual evolution through meditation, spiritual study, service, and spiritual community.
