Sanctuary for the Arts is a spiritual community for anyone seeking an interactive, creative way to commune with the Divine and others. Vision Sanctuary for the Arts is a sacred community rooted at the intersection of art, spiritual growth and social change. Through improvisation and artistic expression we become more fully alive in our connection with the divine and each other. Mission To provide holistic spiritual growth and healing to anyone who has ever felt creatively limited or frustrated in church and bring empowered renewal into the surrounding community. Leadership Sanctuary for the Arts (www.sanctuaryforthearts.com) is led by the Rev. Jeffrey Cheifetz, a Presbyterian Church (USA) Teaching Elder and transitional minister who has worked with churches in three denominations, and Amy Diane Shoemaker, a Disciples of Christ seminary graduate, dancer, and spiritual director. Jeff and Amy are both inspired by InterPlay, an improvisational movement practice that is based in affirmation, and that integrates body, mind, heart, and spirit.
