The Oracle Institute Vision

VA Seal Redux

The Oracle Institute is a 501(c)(3) educational charity dedicated to building a new world based on Social Justice, Interfaith Unity, and a Culture of Peace. Our mission is to advance this global transformation by hosting pluralistic programs and anchoring progressive values.

Oracle operates a spirituality school, award-winning publishing house, and peace practice. Our programs are designed to foster Conscious Evolution and Sacred Activism. Our formal mission statement is Virginia’s Act for Religious Freedom. "Truth, Love, and Light" is our motto and the titles of the Oracle foundational trilogy. Our iconic logo is the Violet of Venus

Oracle is a spiritual think tank, and we study the nexus between religion, politics, civil rights, and human evolution. We teach the Spectrum of Consciousness, a proven model for mapping and motivating socio-spiritual development.

We believe science and spirituality are merging, guided by systems theory and natural holarchy. We predict humanity will undergo a major paradigm shift that will herald a new era – the Fifth Spiritual Paradigm – in which the ancient masculine Godhead will be redefined and rebalanced with Divine Feminine energy.

Our Formal Mission Statement

Adapted from Virginia Code Section 57-1, authored by Thomas Jefferson
Seal of Virginia

Preamble:

Whereas, the Almighty hath created the mind free and our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions; and

Whereas, all attempts to influence mankind tend only to beget hypocrisy and meanness and are a departure from the plan of the Holy Author who, being the Source of body, mind and spirit, yet chose not to undermine freedom by coercions thereon; and

Whereas, the impious presumption of legislators and rulers, civil as well as ecclesiastical, who, being themselves fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others and maintained false religions, thereby depriving mankind of liberty and spiritual freedom; and

Whereas, our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions any more than our opinions in physics or geometry; and

Whereas, Truth is great and will prevail if left to herself as the proper and sufficient antagonist to error and has nothing to fear from conflict unless, by human interposition, Truth is disarmed of her natural weapons – free argument and debate – errors ceasing to be dangerous when Truth is permitted freely to contradict them.
