One Love: The Inter-Spiritual Quest
Join interspiritual author and teacher, Mirabai Starr, for an exploration of the interconnected wisdom at the heart of all religious and spiritual traditions. In this gathering, we will follow the streams of mystical longing and social justice through readings from the ecstatic poetry of the mystics, investigating sacred texts of the world’s great religions, sitting in contemplative silence, chanting the names of God in an array of languages, and engaging in deep dialog through conversation and writing. Discover the unifying teachings and experience the heart-opening practices that carry us beyond an intellectual understanding of humanity’s many spiritual paths to the place we are transformed by the love at their common core.
