Slavic Spirituality 2022, Virtual Program

Slavic Spirituality 2022 virtual event

East-Central Europe is often described as a crossroad of thought and trade between Asia and Western Europe. Yet this land and its people have a unique history and culture.

Sometime before the fourth century c.e. and somewhere near the present-day borders between Belarus, Poland, and Ukraine, a distinct Slavic culture emerged. The spirituality indigenous to this area is the source of this day’s reflection.

During this presentation, reflection, and dialogue, we will briefly acquaint ourselves with the history of the Slavic people. We will then explore six characteristics of Slavic spirituality and their relevance for our times.

Whether our genetic memory includes an East-Central European heritage or we are simply interested in other cultures, this day will explore how we can draw on Slavic spirituality for inspiration for our own lives.
