Centre for Spiritual Exploration and Accompaniment (CSEA)
The CSEA is the educational arm of Spaceforsoul, a progressive spiritual community based in Bristol, UK which connects, supports and resources people in their individual spiritual journeys.
We are an inclusive not-for-profit learning community which offers a range of affordable educational and personal and spiritual growth opportunities. These include a range of courses and workshops with a focus on spirituality and spiritual exploration and accompaniment groups.
All of these are offered by qualified and experienced practitioners who are committed to the ethos and vision of the organisation. They are open to anyone, no matter what your chosen spiritual path may be and where you are on your spiritual journey.

There is no place so awake and alive
as the edge of becoming.
Sue Monk Kidd
The ethos of the CSEA is rooted in a progressive Christian spirituality which is open, inclusive and holistic. It is a spirituality that recognises the value of personal spiritual experience and emphasises the primacy of love and compassion.
It values difference and diversity and believes in the equality of all people, irrespective of gender, race, culture, sexual orientation and spiritual tradition.
It rests on the belief that there are many paths which lead to the Divine and many ways of expressing our unique spirituality. It honours all faiths as responses to the Divine and is open to learning from genuine inter-faith dialogue.
Our ethos also reflects the person-centred philosophy of the American humanistic psychologist, Carl Rogers, with its essentially positive view of human nature, its affirmation of our dignity and worth as human beings and its fundamental belief in our own inner resources and wisdom.
As a learning community, we are committed to…
creating a safe space in which we are free to discover and be ourselves and to explore and express our spirituality in ways which are meaningful for us
offering each other unconditional acceptance and understanding and to being open and genuine with each other
respecting and learning from each other’s thinking and experience
valuing and drawing on each other’s gifts and resources.
