encourage discussion and communication among Pantheists, to
provide mutual aid and defense of Pantheists everywhere, to
stimulate a revision of social attitudes away from

About Us

Pantheism holds that the Cosmos is synonymous with the theological principle of God. The Cosmos is divine, and the earth sacred.
The Society is comprised of individuals who feel that fundamental religious experience involves an individual relationship with the natural world.
Recognizing that freedom of belief is inherent in the pantheist tradition, the Society's bylaws explicitly prohibit any requirement imposing a particular interpretation of religion or subscription to any particular religious belief, doctrine, or creed.
Universal Pantheist Society Members participate in the following activities: our quarterly publication Pantheist Vision; discussion forum on our website, www.pantheist.net; member exchange listings in Pantheist Vision; spotlight web-space, public dissemination of information on modern Pantheism; sharing opportunities with other Pantheists; support of research on Pantheism; special publications and bibliographies; promotion of Pantheist celebrations, holidays, and special events; and support application of Pantheist principles to solve social and environmental problems.
