WELCOME TO THE SACRED CENTER
in partnership with St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. Our center is located inside the beautiful Parish House at 324 East Main Rd, Portsmouth, RI 02871. Our 60 acre campus is centrally located at the heart of Aquidneck Island, not far from the town line between Middletown and Portsmouth.
We are an inclusive, life-affirming, interfaith center for wellbeing. We offer yoga classes for all ages and abilities, meditation, various retreats, dance, spiritual discovery bookgroups, support groups, workshops and much more in a beautiful space welcoming all people, all genders, all bodies. Please have a look around and be sure to visit our class schedule page. We are always adding new offerings with the sincere hope that you see our classes as a series of “invitations” to step away from your busy life and find support on your journey.
Here you will be welcomed into our atmosphere of kindness, love, compassion and acceptance.
~Come, let's grow together~
Peace be with you, Reverend Shelley Dungan

Please check our Facebook page for up to date announcements. I will add some sunset Prayer Walks if there is interest and we will be careful to practice "social distancing".
Daily Prayer Walk at Sachuest Point, 2 PM with Rev Shelley Dungan
If you feel well and so inclined, please consider joining us any day this week at 2 PM for my daily prayer walk. We meet at the flagpole in front of the Visitor's Center at Sachuest Point Wildlife Refuge. We spend an hour or so together breathing, getting centered, reflecting, praying, walking the trail, talking with each other and soaking in Mother Nature's healing energy. Any questions about cancellations, or to indicate your interest in going, please use our Facebook page. Questions? email@example.com.
The suggested donation is $10, to help support RI Food Bank.
In an effort to keep yoga accessible and inclusive, our weekly classes are offered on a sliding scale based on each person's ability to pay ~ please pay what you can between $10 and $20 per class.
When you drive onto our picturesque campus you will see the Parish House directly ahead. If you are attending a class or event in the Chapel, please drive slowly around, park in the rear lot and enter where you will likely see the blue welcome flag. If you are attending a class or event in the Southside Studio on our lower level, you may wish to park in the lower lot, closer to East Main Road, and enter through the ground floor entrance. We look forward to your visit!
Watch this video to see how to find us.
We offer classes in the Chapel as well as in our new Southside Studio on the lower level of the building!
