Healing and Growth are Primary

The purpose of Shalem Center in Columbus, Ohio is to promote healing and growth for individuals, groups, and organizations.
This growth is understood in the larger context of spiritual purpose realized through intentional development of consciousness (of self, others, the natural world, and the divine).

  • Psychotherapy and spiritual mentoring services are a primary means towards fulfillment of this purpose.
  • Each year Shalem offers programs integrating spirituality in daily life experience.
  • Shalem also provides consultation and training for healing professionals and clergypersons on various topics integrating psychology, somatics and spirituality.

Spirituality is Inclusive: Honors All Paths

Spirituality is understood broadly to include all religions, faiths, and paths as expressions of human yearning for realization of divine nature. Interspiritual work is a primary focus at Shalem Center as Divine Unity is recognized in all religions and spiritual paths.

  • Programs and services reflect this inclusive approach.
  • Counseling and consultation services are provided for individuals and families related to religious and cultural issues.

Peace is the Ultimate Goal of Spirituality

Ultimately spiritual purpose expresses itself in service to the larger communities in which we live. This service is towards more peace and harmony in one's existence --- in the inner and outer levels of life and including all spheres of life.

At Shalem we seek to support persons in living meaningful lives that contribute to a more just, humane, and peaceful world.
