The Leaven Center
Leaven is committed to nurturing the relationship between spirituality and social justice. We offer education, resources, and hospitality for all who seek to be leavening agents for change -- resisting oppression, engendering hope. The nature of Leaven programs is guided by our commitment to racial, sexual, and economic justice; feminism; the rights of people with disabilities; and respect for the wisdom of varying religious and spiritual traditions.
The Leaven Center is a retreat and study center in mid-Michigan that offers workshops and retreats sponsored by Leaven, as well as hospitality for other nonprofit groups that offer their own events. Leaven was incorporated in 1987 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
