Our Service

What is SpeakEasy?

SpeakEasy is a spiritual community for the creatively active and the spiritually thirsty. Led by Maureen Muldoon, the Sunday morning experience has been compared to a Spiritual Ted Talk followed by a conversation. Our music is led by national and international music guests such as Cathy Richardson of Jefferson Starship, Nina Grae, Clive Williams and many more. 

We gather to speak easily about spiritual truths and practices. We sit heart to heart and knee to knee, where all are welcomed to share their wisdom, worries, and wit. Or you can come to soak it all in and remain silent.

Maureen is an internationally recognized teacher of A Course in Miracles, a licensed spiritual practitioner, and an ordained minister who identifies as a Celebrant with deep roots in Catholicism, 12-step, and the spirituality of creativity.

A Place To Grow

SpeakEasy is a place to take a class and teach a class.  

If you feel called to co-create, we have a media team, Sunday morning production group and a half dozen small groups that we call salons, and there is literally something for everyone and if you don’t find it on the calendar, you can create it. 

Check out the GIVE page for all the ways we have been able to give back to our community and world.

Do I have to be religious or spiritual?

We are not interested in being another religion or attempting to create a universal theology. Instead, we celebrate diversity and seek a universal experience of Love. Truth is our passion, Love is our religion, care is our currency, and peace is our goal. No matter where you’ve been, what you believe, or who you love, you are welcome.

Our community is a diverse tapestry of people who identify as Atheist, Catholic, Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Hindu, Protestant, New Thought, and agnostic, to name a few. We also have people of varying political affiliations. We welcome everyone.

Are you Bible Based?

The source used for our conversations are as diverse as the community. You are likely to hear stories and quotes from A Course in Miracles, the Bible, 12-Step, Buddha, Edgar Caycee, Martin Luther King, the New York Times, Facebook, Ralph Waldo Emerson… an advertisement for fast food, a Beatles song. 

We find God in the most interesting places. 

Are there dues or fees?

SpeakEasy Spiritual Community is a non-profit corporation registered in the state of Illinois. 

At each gathering, we pass a basket for collection. Additionally, we are able to receive online giving. Several times a year we organize fundraisers. All donations are tax deductible. We are a wealth conscious community and we tithe 10% of our collection to places where we have been spiritually fed.



SpeakEasy Spiritual Community has sprung to life and has been steadily growing! Love is our Religion; Care is our Currency and Peace is our Goal.

We started as Sanctuary Spiritual Community in 2013. Sanctuary began to morph and change and was rebranded on March 15, 2015, by a collective of thirsty souls committed to creating an alternative Sunday morning experience. The magic word at SpeakEasy is “Speak” and “Easy.”

Spirituality does not need to be complicated. SpeakEasy members refer to us as the “un-church” where all are welcome.

“If it’s about God, spirituality, creativity, we want to talk about it,” says founder and Spiritual Director Maureen Muldoon. Muldoon is a storyteller and minister, maven, and mystic. She leads thought-provoking, hot topic conversations and stirs the pot with her understanding of spiritual principles and the human condition, gained through years of study, practice, and the best teacher of all, life experience.
