Sophia's Portico, Inc., established in 1992, is an art
and spirituality center focusing on the development of the feminine
through education, the arts and earth based spirituality.
Our education component consists of book discussions,
workshops and presentations. In the area of arts, we sponsor an annual
Winter Art Fair and produce a variety of theatre/music events through
our theatre component, The Primrose Theatre Project. We focus on the
arts because art and spirituality inform one another and are integral in
the development of the human person.
Our earth-based spirituality focuses on the
celebration of the Winter and Summer Solstices, the Autumn and Spring
Equinoxes and the cross quarter days of Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas and
Samhain. We are unique in this area as very few groups offer these
celebrative opportunities. We are inclusive of creeds, cultures,
genders and races and seek to nurture spiritual growth in an atmosphere
of peace, freedom, dignity and justice.
