About

ASA logo 6The Acadiana Spiritual Association (ASA) is a group of individuals who practice alternative spiritualities which ascribe to common values and goals for the betterment of themselves and their local religious, social, political, familial, and work communities. ASA defines alternative spiritualities as any tribal/indigenous, classical polytheistic, neopagan, reconstructivist, or intrapersonal spirituality.

Our  motto, “Nos devoirs sacrés” (Our sacred duty),  emphasizes our dedication to service and community while fostering spiritual growth. The intent of this organization is to (1) raise funding for public events, (2) be a public voice for all alternative religions, (3) get involved in civil rights issues in the community, (4) actively recruit more individuals in our community through awareness, (5) educate the community through workshops, lectures, and symposiums, (6) create a public space to use for rituals, weddings, banquets, and meetings, and (7) establish charity and volunteer organizations to help those in need.

ASA hosts several events each month which are free and open to the public. ASA also sponsors other events, such as public rituals or ceremonies, social gatherings, and workshops that are not organized by ASA.
