Our Philosophy

Democracy is more than the system of government; it is a way of life based upon citizens' commitment to the common good. The Practicing Democracy Project — a collaboration between Spirituality & Practice and The Fetzer Institute — is curating resources and spiritual practices for different constituencies wanting to support a flourishing democracy. We invite you to read our overview of the project to see how democracy can be strengthened and deepened through spiritual practices.
