One Spirit Learning Alliance and its Interfaith Seminary, known together in New York City as "One Spirit", offer one of the most innovative and forward looking programs on the InterSpiritual landscape, and one with plenty of opportunities for long distance learning.  

Founded in 2002 by Diane Berke and Michael Pergola, One Spirit now combines a two-year interfaith ordination program with supportive programs in Consciousness Studies and Integral Multifaith, a blend of modern InterSpirituality and the Integral vision.  Frequented by major spiritual teachers and scholars from many traditions, and supported by a broad-based interfaith community in the tri-state area, One Spirit also offers certification in Conscious Leadership and InterSpiritual Counseling.

One Spirit Interfaith Seminary

One Spirit Interfaith Seminary is a two-year part-time professional training that explores the world’s religions and spiritual diversity and supports deep personal growth and transformation. Designed for working adults, the program leads to ordination as an Interfaith minister in a program centered on supportive community and an InterSpiritual perspective.  One Spirit Interfaith Seminary draws from the deeper essence that underlies the spiritual treasures of every tradition, the essential spirituality found at the mystic heart of every great expression of faith.  

One Spirit recognizes that all authentic spiritual traditions, at their core, are committed to the common values of peace, tolerance, compassionate service, and love for all creation. Accordingly, the Seminary draws from the resources of the great wisdom teachings, both ancient and modern, to increase our appreciation for the diversity of life and to nurture a direct experience of the unity that underlies it.  With an emphasis on community, nurturing practice, sound interfaith education and sacred activism One Spirit presents a unique opportunity for both in person and long distance learning.


One Spirit Learning Alliance

One Spirit Learning Alliance supports One Spirit's Interfaith Seminary with a variety of programs open to students and public.  These include Certification in Conscious Leadership and InterSpiritual Counseling and curricula in Consciousness Studies (contemporary understandings of consciousness, spiritual inquiry, dharma studies etc.) and Integral Multifaith (interspirituality, integral and spiral dynamics).  Led by One Spirit co-founder Michael Pergola (left) the Alliance also regularly hosts prominent spiritual teachers, sacred activists and other alliances and networks working toward world change and provides and supports major and forward-looking programs for the New York City Community. 

On the national and international level, One Spirit is working constantly to expand its educational activities through partnerships with the contemplative, dharma, interspiritual, integral, sacred activist and world transformation movements and communities.
