Occupy Boston Faith and Spirituality Group
The Occupy Boston Faith and Spirituality Group seeks to establish an atmosphere of inclusiveness and peace in the environment of Occupy Boston. Its members are committed to welcoming all individuals, while promoting and cultivating the diversity that exists between various religious, faith, and spiritual traditions. Through the establishment of the Sacred Space tent, the group provides participants with a place to decompress in the midst of a chaotic and sometimes stressful atmosphere. Its members are here to serve participants in roles such as facilitators, spiritual guides and mediators. Through the scheduling of workshops, ceremonies, spiritual practices and religious services, the group not only seeks to provide participants with vital opportunities for spiritual growth but it also hopes to cultivate increased awareness and participation in Occupy Boston on the part of the local spiritual community. All are welcome in the group and encouraged to join in the community that we've established at Dewey Square!

The Faith and Spirituality Group has adopted the following guidelines for use of the Sacred Space these guidelines are posted at both entrances to the space

Respect others and the space
Remove shoes
Finish food outside
Be mindful when speaking: words carry vibration so please keep it positive!
Minimize conversations (unless otherwise agreed) and limit cellphone use/texting, etc.
Bring items to help co-create this sacred space!
(tapestries, pieces of nature, incense, photos, totems, other beautiful/sacred objects)
Do not leave personal items in the space. Anything left is to be considered an offering to the space.
*So as to provide access to the space, no more than 3 people, including host, should sleep in the space, and only between the hours of midnight and 8:30 am, or at the discretion of the Host.
