The Rainbow Soul Circle was created by LGBTQIA+ people. We believe that the best path to optimizing humanity's existence and experience on this planet is to make sure that all life is honored and cared for. We would like our leadership to be diverse to better ensure that this happens.
We are looking for a diverse group of people to be on our advisory board. If you are interested, please 1) become an RSC member and 2) complete your soul map questions. In the soul map questions, please indicate that you are interested in being an advisory board member.

Grace started her company and Wildphi in 2017, the documentary film on men in 2019, and the Rainbow Soul Circle in 2020.
The Rainbow Soul Circle began with the idea of providing a spiritual ministry to LGBTQIA+, but welcoming to anyone. She also believes that if we help people spiritually on the inside, then an optimized external world will evolve from that.
However, with the political events of 2020, George Floyd, and the increasing destruction of the environment, a social activist element seemed necessary to accelerate the changes needed to save our world.
