Sacred Milestones offers a variety of educational and entertaining experiences that allow children, youth, adults, and families to explore spiritual topics and have sacred conversations outside of a religious setting. These programs are especially popular with groups of people of differing faiths and no faith at all, including social clubs, corporate cafeterias, councils on aging, and fraternal organizations.
Our flagship edu-tainment program is our “Conversation Café.” These experiences are designed to feed the soul with fascinating stories, original videos, and a guided discussion on a popular life issue such as loneliness, natural disasters, guilt, regret, racism, PTSD, life after death, parenting, ethical questions, and current events.
Sacred Milestones runs fantastic film series with guided conversations to educate the mind, enrich the spirit, and engage the heart! Topics include character-building family films, the environment, food themes, diversity issues and more!
