Welcome to Sanctuary of the Arts (SotA)
We are an affirming, intersectional, arts-based spiritual community grounded in creative contemplative practices.
We offer accessible sources of soulful connection and creative expression.
We believe that creativity is life-affirming and that everyone is creative in their own way.
You are most welcome here at SotA.
SotA is an offering of St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary with collaboration of artists from diverse backgrounds.
We're excited to offer "SotA Supplies" for you to use with upcoming art workshops or in your own free exploration of creativity.
