Join Ian Lawton, founder of Soulseeds.com, for transformative conversations with renowned spiritual leaders from many traditions as we explore awareness. Beyond all the things that divide us, both from ourselves and each other, awareness brings up back to our essential oneness. Together, we can increase the peace, both within and in the world.
Fred Stella began his spiritual search within the Hindu Dharma at the age of 15. He was initiated into his specific tradition over 25 years ago. His training includes time spent in temples and ashrams both here and in India. His articles have appeared in Hindu Vishwa, India Link and Hinduism Today magazines. He is an ordained Pracharak (which translates to "Outreach Minister") and a well respected teacher of various branches of Yoga and meditation. He has lectured extensively in both the US and India on the traditions of Hinduism. In 2013 he presented a paper on "The White Hindu Phenomenon" at a Princeton symposium. Besides Fred's work within his own faith he labors heartily in the field of religious tolerance. For almost 20 years he has served as President of Interfaith Dialogue Association. In that role he hosts the radio program (also available on the web), "Common Threads" where he interviews many brilliant spiritual giants of today, including several of the participants in this webinar.
A fun fact about Fred is that besides his work in the world of religion and spirit he is a professional actor. He has worked extensively in TV, theatre, independent film and audiobooks. Currently he is costarring with Joan Rivers in soon to air animated series, "Fashionista & Glamor Girl."
