United Palace Now Posting Sunday Spiritual Artistry Videos

For the past 50 years, the United Palace of Spiritual Arts (UPSA), in Washington Heights, has served both the local and global communities as a source of inspiration, a house for creativity, and “the home of spiritual artistry,” says Rev. Heather Shea, UPSA’s spiritual director and CEO.

“As a spiritual center, it’s important to us that we stay connected with these communities and transform our programs in accordance with cultural shifts,” she says. “Our most recent development has been a new take on Sunday services, with Spiritual Artistry in Action (SAIA). In essence, spiritual artistry is the exploration of art as a spiritual journey, and we believe that every person is a spiritual artist.”

Every Sunday at 3 p.m., SAIA posts a 10-minute service online, accessible from anywhere in the world via Livestream, Facebook and YouTube.

“In this weekly online clip, our ministry shares moments of spiritual artistry that we hope will uplift and inspire you to express yourself creatively throughout the week,” Shea says. “Tune in for 10 minutes this Sunday for Spiritual Artistry in Action, anywhere. “
