"Purpose: The purpose of The Sophia Institute is to be a source and a beacon in today’s world for profound transformation and unlimited spiritual growth. Using a new model of spiritual partnership and integration between feminine and masculine values, the Institute fosters a spirit of co-creative wisdom that calls forth the unique gifts of each individual.

"Vision: The Sophia Institute looks towards a world that could be called a wisdom society, a 21st century that could be called The Sophia Century: a conscious enlightened world, a compassionate global community, where wisdom, wholeness, sustainability, healing, and the conscious feminine and masculine are at the center of life. As we face new challenges in a world in transformation, we are dedicated to the vision that together we can create a more conscious and enlightened world, a world in renaissance that expresses the vastness of the human potential."[1]
