What We Believe

Paths to Understanding is a non-profit organization based in Washington State. We bridge bias and build unity through multi-faith peacemaking.

  • We believe these times require wisdom communities to act together for the common good and the future of life on our planet.
  • We believe each tradition offers gifts for the common good, when we know how to receive them.
  • We believe interaction with other wisdom communities enriches and deepens our commitment to our own.
