Who We Are

SI-Pew-GraphWhether we refer to ourselves as “nones,” “spiritual but not religious (SBNR),” or Spiritually Independent, our numbers are increasing.

Twenty percent of all adults in the U.S. consider themselves spiritually independent, and when we look at those of us under thirty, our numbers rise to over thirty percent. But don’t mistake spiritual independence for spiritual apathy or religious antipathy.

Spiritually independent people  are not opposed to religion per se, we are simply no longer willing to be corralled into one religion or another, or forced to choose between science or religion. We seek wisdom, truth, meaning, purpose, and transformative experience wherever it is to be found.
