Beauty awakens the soul to act. – Dante
The mission of Journey Society for Beauty in Action is to create a local community that delights in cultural and handmade beauty and translates that delight into action in our lives.
Journey Society is for women who love (or want to love) beauty and culture through the ages, from lovely table settings to great works of art. Journey Society is a local community of ladies in Colorado Springs of all ages and interests who believe that experiencing beauty in community nourishes souls and improves lives. We desire to learn and grow in order to advance goodness in our own lives and in our communities.
To that end, Journey Society offers four programs:
- Journey Society monthly gatherings on the first Tuesdays of the month from September-May in downtown Colorado Springs that celebrate beauty and culture through the ages.
- Journey Society Talk, a reading & discussion community held directly after each monthly gathering that focuses on translating the ideas of the gathering into action in our lives.
- The Journey Society website which offers original content written by local and expert writers.
- Special events hosted and/or promoted by Journey Society, including conferences and cultural events that contribute to furthering our mission.
The mission and pursuits of Journey Society are consistent with historic, sacramental Christianity. We believe that great art and artisanship spring from the Imago Dei, or the image of God, within each human soul. We create because we are created, and we are created to create. We believe that goodness, truth and beauty express the divine nature of God who redeems the world. The language we use will express these core beliefs. Journey Society welcomes various perspectives on faith in art and artisanship from participants and speakers.
