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.
