Tacheria, a Yaqui word meaning inner spirit or inner journey reflects both the native Southwest roots and the purpose of our center:  

  • to offer spiritual direction
  • to help people grow in spiritual maturity
  • to train spiritual directors
  • to provide a multifaith spiritual home through classes, workshops and retreats.

Congratulations to Cathy and Gil Stafford on the publication of their new book!

Walking with the Spiritual but not Religious: Spiritual Companionship for a Post-religious World (Apocryphile Press, 2022, – Catherine A. and Gil W. Stafford) Among their many accomplishments, Cathy and Gil are Tacheria Alums and co-founders of Wisdom’s Way School. Our students, staff and alumni are unanimous in their praise of the beautiful way this book provides a glimpse into sacred listening, spiritual companionship, and a circle of support for the spiritual journey.
