Tzaddi is a fellowship of Spirit. As human beings, at some deep level, we crave spiritual community. Many of us are spiritual, but not religious. If you like our 21 Principles and our Ethics Code, you are welcome; it’s that simple. At this level, you might say, “I am a spiritual friend” of what Tzaddi offers and does; or, “I belong.” You can choose from and attend worship or fellowship services, offered in a variety of formats and settings. If you want to give some monetary support, you are welcome to make a donation at any time you feel so moved.
If after feeling a sense of belonging, you want to take it one step further and try to live by our 21 Principles and our Ethics Code, you might say, “I am a disciple”—a student or follower. With Tzaddi, you are a disciple not of a person, but of a spiritual path or a journey, an inter-spiritual metaphysical way of living and being set forth by our Founders, that our 21 Principles and our Ethics Code communicate. The word “disciple” comes from the same Latin word as “discipline” and with Tzaddi, it means that you are undertaking the personal discipline of “walking your talk” as you develop spiritually.
If you want to take the next step, you might like to study our Core Curriculum. And if, after you look at this material, you feel moved, you might want to enroll in one of our seminars, or apply for admission to one of our vocational programs. After you graduate, you can take your part as ordained clergy, offering spiritual healing and counseling, sacred rites and blessings, and spiritual leadership in the Tzaddi community and in the world.
Spiritual friendship, a sense of belonging, discipleship, training in spiritual development, attending to your vocation, expressing your spiritual gifts and talents, and serving with the Divine in love and joy are all callings that come from a place deep inside of you. We each have private, internal conditions of being that lead us. As we develop spiritually our internal guidance arises from higher vibrational energies, from hope and inspiration, and from the very human, basic need for spiritual community. We hope you will join with us, to develop spiritually.
