SDI Communities

What is an SDI Community?

It’s an SDI-sponsored, locally-run group of spiritual companions. These people gather either regionally, or based on a shared commonality, on a regular basis to connect, support one another, network, share contemplative time and practice new skills in spiritual care. An SDI Community can operate anywhere in the world.

Let us know if you’d be interested in joining an SDI Community and we will connect you. You can email our Communities Coordinator, Aliyah Nunez, here: [email protected]

SDI Communities Coordinators

Aliyah Nunez

Aliyah, originally from sunny coastal Southern California, has found solace and growth amidst the ancient redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Over the past few years, Aliyah has called a yoga retreat center home, serving diligently in human resources while exploring the nexus of spirituality and social justice. Her journey has led her through the heart of community where she solidified her passion of working with others and being of service. With a background in sociology and her current graduate studies in mental health counseling, she is committed to bridging the realms of spirituality, psychology, social justice and advocacy work. Somatic counseling, with its focus on healing through movement and dance as a medium of liberation, particularly captivates her. Aliyah is in pursuit of working with others towards collective healing and personal transformation. She hopes to foster vibrant and inclusive communities rooted in healing and authenticity as the Communities Coordinator at SDI! In her spare moments, she finds joy in thrifting and collecting antiques, being in nature and playing with her two cats.
