Join a movement of spiritual communities, organizations, and retreat venues that are committed to doing their part to evolve the paradigm of spiritual leadership!

Member Organizations include any group whose purpose is of a spiritual nature and/or identifies as a spiritual organization.

By joining the ASI, your organization will be bolstered by the support of a network of spiritual leaders and groups committed to ongoing professional and personal evolution, ethical practice, and integrity as core values informing the culture of spiritual leadership. The ASI also offers our members a growing library of resources to support them on their journey towards greater integrity and wholeness.

When your organization joins the ASI, you are agreeing to integrate the ASI Honor Code of Ethics into your guidance policies for staff/volunteers and to ensure that integrity is a core value informing the culture of the establishment, relationships among the staff /volunteers, and the interactions with those you serve. You are encouraged to add to the ASI Code to create a code that fits your organization’s unique goals and services, as long as your additions do not conflict with the existing ASI Code. Member Organizations also agree to formulate their own internal procedures to hold their members accountable to the ASI code in the event that the code is breached.

Two spiritual organizations that put their own policies in place prior to the birth of the ASI are Spirit Rock and East Bay Meditation Center. If you would like to reference their procedures as an examples CLICK HERE to read an overview of Spirit Rock’s “Ethics and Reconciliation Council” or HERE to read about the East Bay Meditation Center’s “Ethics, Restoration, and Resolution” (ER&R) process.

We know that it takes time and resources to develop and/or revise policies and practices within organizations. The ASI is a member-led organization seeking to help both ourselves and other leaders in this regard. Our community of members share a commitment to integrity. You are invited to join us.

If you would like your organization to join the Association for Spiritual Integrity, please review the membership benefits & requirements below and then complete the electronic application form.
