Society for Ritual Arts

We are an interfaith organization at the crossroads of art, science and spirituality.

We publish a semi-annual, peer-reviewed journal, Coreopsis: Journal of Myth & Theater, as well as host events related to ritual arts. Our mission is to support the ritual arts community through the advancement of arts and scholarly research in the fields of spirituality, consciousness, healing, performance, and visual media. We support work that advances freedom of spiritual practices globally, the scientific study of spirituality and the human brain, and beauty in any media that inspires a spiritual sense of wonder, awe or connectedness. We are currently seeking 501(c)3 nonprofit status.
