The Guibord Center – Religion Inside Out is a unique, non-profit organization that invites people to experience the transformative spirituality at the center of the word’s great religions. We, in partnership with an advisory council of nearly forty beloved religious and spiritual leaders, present classes, lectures and major community events that give people an opportunity to share in the wisdom and beauty of ancient traditions. 

The Guibord Center – Religion Inside Out

In a world rife with violence there is something that calls us to do better, to respect one another, build relationships and create community where peace will flourish. That community begins wherever we gather together. That call comes to us from the heart of all the world’s great spiritual and faith traditions.

The Guibord Center – Religion Inside Out was created so people can experience the expression of goodness and peacemaking inside all wisdom traditions. We bring people together to challenge the assumptions that denigrate others in the name of faith. We create opportunities to experience religious signs, symbols and practices first-hand. And we craft beautiful public events that allow people to gather around timely issues of great importance and share in deep healing and joyful celebration.

Yes. The violence has to end. We can do better. And we can begin by learning that faith is not a faith that hurts others. Real faith heals.

Our Mission

To bring people together to challenge assumptions, unleash the Holy and affirm the faith that transforms the world.

 “Curators of Peace – The Work of The Guibord Center”

“It’s not possible for one to say that they love God, or whatever one calls the Holy, and hate another human being or try to do damage to another human being…The Guibord Center was established to confront the distortions that we hold about one another and to uphold that which is good in one another.” -The Rev. Dr. Gwynne Guibord
