Are you affiliated with a religious organization?
No. Although the founders of Sage Mountain Center are familiar with western and eastern belief systems, the center does not affiliate itself with a particular organized religion. Rather, we seek to understand the nature of belief systems as a way of spiritual freedom. This spiritual freedom cannot be separated from our interaction with others and our natural environment. Understanding the believer and the thinker brings us closer to the universal mystery of who we are and why we are here.
