Our Story

SpeakEasy Spiritual Community, located at Immanuel Hall in Hinsdale 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 a seedling community that began March 15, 2015, as a collective of thirsty souls seeking an alternative Sunday morning. The magic word at SpeakEasy is “care.” SpeakEasy members refer to themselves as the “un-church” and happily hold the door open to everyone. Every creed, color, and spiritual background are welcome.

“If it’s about God, we want to talk about it,” says founder and Spiritual Director Maureen Muldoon, but the title she prefers is “Spiritual Vixen.” 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 principals and the human condition, gained through years of study, practice, and the best teacher of all, life experience.

Just come and check us out, and you will experience a vibrant community focused on learning how to love more and fear less. We honor all paths to God and ask that you don’t check your brains, beliefs or background at the door. We welcome questions and celebrate diversity. We believe in the healing nature of creativity and laughter. We would love to have you join us Sunday morning at 10am for a true happy hour.
