Interspirituality: Evolutionary Hope for the Human Family

“We have been given the gift of life in this perplexing world to become who we ultimately are: creatures of boundless love, caring compassion, and wisdom.”

- Brother Wayne Teasdale

This retreat is being cancelled but will be rescheduled.  We will post the new dates as soon as they are confirmed.

“Interspirituality” is the deep sharing of prayer and belief across spiritual traditions.  When Wayne Teasdale presented the term at the 1993 Parliament of World Religions, the phrase had immediate resonance and added spiritual depth to interreligious dialogue.

In a time when many institutional religious structures are declining, what would it take to have the soul of religion be embedded again in its original meaningful context, namely, to bind together what has been and is now trying to be lived?  It suggests a reflection back to our origins, to what has brought the human family to this point in time and holds the seed to the evolution of the spiritual life of all humans.

Just what is interspirituality and what hope does it hold for the human race at this critical time?  What can older generations say to younger generations about the religious life they have known all their life?  These and many more reflections and group discussion will be the goal   of our time together.

The retreat begins at 6:30pm on Friday and concludes at 3:30pm on Saturday.
