Micro-Communities & Retreat Centers

The Micro-Communities & Retreat Center Sector focuses on the people and places where the New World already exits! There are thousands of Micro-Communities around the World and 56 in Virginia – for a detailed list visit the Fellowship for Intentional Community. Those of us who already have transitioned into the New World are fortunate, and we need to help our brothers and sisters make the shift as well. In that regard, the HUB encourages its Members to visit and consider joining Micro-Communities that offer a holistic environment and opportunities for personal exploration and growth.

Jul 14, 2017 Oracle Spirituality and Singing Salon

Please join us at Oracle Temple as we explore ageless and contemporary spiritual themes and theosophies. We also will raise our voices in song.

The Oracle Temple Salon is a recurring event on the second Friday of each month. We will embark on high level discussions and spiritual reflection, with a new theme to consider each month.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and sowing “Seeds of Song.” Along the way, we'll learn more about ourselves, each other, and God, as we pay respect to Sacred Texts and to New Age concepts such as: The Spectrum of Consciousness, Duality & Non-Duality, Enlightenment, Incarnation, Mythology, Cosmology, Archetypes, and more!

Oracle Temple is an esoteric, multi-faith church led by the Wayshowers in the Path of the Oracle – one of the five volunteer paths in the Valley of Light micro-community.

We will meet in the Peace Pentagon sanctuary, which is dedicated to ancient and indigenous wisdom traditions and spiritual unity among the five primary religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. Our Temple follows three simple, primordial, core tenets:

The Truth: A quest for personal & collective awakening
The Love: Compassionate action for the benefit of others
The Light: Faith in one Divine source & one shared Destiny
