My Story

Sandra_Bargman_sepia

My story is about more. Wanting more. I think the story of wanting more is really our universal story. The idea of Sacred Stages was born out of my longing for wanting more.

I was born in upstate New York, and was a very athletic tomboyish kid. I was singing by the time I could talk, playing violin and singing in regional choirs by the age of 6, and producing my own backyard cabarets by the age of 7. In addition, I always wondered “Why am I here?” Even as I child I pondered if I had a life mission, if there is an afterlife. I've always been deeply attracted to things of "spirit"...and found great solace in nature as a budding tomboy. I was fascinated by and loved to visit different churches, and be with people of other cultures and belief systems. I was raised Presbyterian...I loved the rituals, and singing in the choir, but found I needed to look outside organized religion to find my answers to the big questions. My path was clear and I wanted more.

When I was 9, we moved to Pittsburgh, PA. I was lucky to attend schools that had strong arts programs where my musical and artistic talents were encouraged and nourished. Many plays, musicals, concerts, and violin lessons later, I graduated from high school and did my first professional production, playing Louisa in The Fantastics, yes, my one and only stint as an ingenue. I received my BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in theatre and music. My path was clear and I wanted more.

I've enjoyed exploring all of the worlds religious faiths, including earth-based traditions, and while my personality is drawn to some more than others, I find my quest to be outside of any organized religion.

Interfaith is not a religion, rather a philosophy that espouses the understanding that there are many paths to Universal Truth. My friends and colleagues span the spectrum of the many ways to explore the spiritual aspect of being human...from Atheist to Zen Monk, and everything in between. What we all share is the desire to serve humanity, and to awaken to Unity consciousness.
