Let’s find our love and light together! Awkwardly Zen is a safe and loving place to explore your spirituality in an online group setting. We strive to be non-judgmental and open-minded as we learn more about a variety of spiritual topics. We can’t wait to meet you! Please keep in mind we are a nationwide group so you’ll meet people from your area and some from across the country.


Mission

To create safe opportunities for spiritual development. 

Vision

Our vision is to forge a community where anyone can explore spirituality within love and light. We strive for judgment-free events where the awkwardness of a spiritual journey may be explored and embraced.
