STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Reflect with Respect! This is the only rule of the Rainbow Spiritual Education Center. This simple yet profound statement is truly what the Center is about.  Respect the person, their belief system, their journey. Provide education and tools to assist individuals to reflect on their lives and the lives of others in a healthy way. This helps to dispell fears and insecurities while supporting the individual as a unique and worthy person.  This promotes peace, inside and out. Such programs are needed throughout the community."
