Spirit of Life International
Spirit of Life International (SOLI for short) is here for you, to be with you, on your spiritual and personal journey of life. We are a spiritual community that focuses on the “common unity” of community, joining in inclusive fellowship with those who seek the inspiration, encouragement, education and support we offer. Our expression is a blend of the spiritual and practical, recognizing the importance of living as our Spirit in our daily lives.
Spirit of Life is experienced in different ways, uniquely by each and all of us.
- A personal experience within our Spirit
- The essence of our soul reflected and expressed
- The divine entity, energy or truth we believe in, call on, seek guidance from, are an expression of
- This is related to our religion, philosophy, belief system, way of life, etc.
- We are a part of everything, the universe, all that is, even beyond our understanding
- The Spirit of Life is a universal experience for each and all that bridges the differences and distance between us
At SOLI, we offer an inclusive philosophy of Universal Spirituality. This begins with recognizing the gifts that all religions, inspirational philosophies and belief systems offer. We embrace all universal spiritual truths, understanding there are differences and that each has the right to choose what they believe and how they live. We honor the truths that each believes and join together to celebrate our unified diversity.
Unified Diversity is a term used by SOLI to describe how, although each of us has our own truth and beliefs, we hold true to our own while being open to the beliefs of others as possible windows we are able to see life and ourselves differently. We all contribute together to a common vision of Our world awakened and empowered by the love, inspiration, and illumination of the Spirit of Life. Through unity, there are no limits to how we can all join together to enrich and benefit each other’s lives and the world.
We offer a full spectrum of offerings such as:
Education ● Inspirational Talks ● Healing ● Meditation ● Video, Audio and Written Resources ● Counseling
Group Experiences ● Community Outreach ● Fellowship ● Events ● and More
This is facilitated by our Spiritual Director, Jim Toole, and a team of devoted individuals that are committed to being of service to all.
Reverend Jim Toole is a very special and unique individual. From the moment I met him I knew he was someone I could trust, confide in, seek support from, and learn a great deal from.
Jim exudes tremendous compassion and carries no judgment of others. He is open, accepting, and shares love with all whom he welcomes into his life. For this reason, I am always very comfortable in his presence and always feel free and confident to go to him for answers and support. His kindness and willingness to help in any situation makes Jim quite an exceptional person.
I have taken many classes taught by Jim and, no matter the topic, they are always enjoyable and illuminating. I especially love his channeled meditations, so uplifting, and his amazing ability to appreciate and support each individual’s unique spiritual journey.
Rev. Jim Toole, a.k.a. “Just Jim,” is a very authentic caring person. He has been very loving and helpful throughout some extremely tough times in my life. Jim bubbles with the energy of love.
