About UPSA

At the United Palace of Spiritual Arts, we cultivate the expansion of consciousness and the power of imagination. We honor spirit, explore the intersection of science and spirituality, and celebrate the arts, culture and entertainment. Spiritual Artistry is the full realization of all that it means to be alive; we believe every human being is a Spiritual Artist. Join us for Sunday Services at 3pm on livestream here.
