“The universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects.” —Thomas Berry


Because we understand the world, the people, animals and all of creation as part of one interconnected system, we aim to participate, in our small, creative ways in the mutual liberation of all. With a focus on holistic, integrated lives, VrijSpirit organizes, co-creates and hosts a variety of soul-nourishing classes, workshops, events and meet-ups in English, right in the heart of Leiden.
