Interfaith Contemplative Traditions
Next Meeting: February 10, 2020
You are invited to join us for Interfaith Contemplative Traditions: a group that practices Interspiritual Companioning. This is a space where people of any faith or spiritual tradition can enter into various disciplines of prayer, meditation, or reflection from across our different traditions to explore with one another how we encounter and experience the Divine. This space will be deeply personal and deeply spiritual, yet does not in any way require or expect you to step outside of your own tradition or beliefs.
We will be utilizing each other's experiences with prayer and meditation to build relationships and journey with each other on a deeper level of understanding.
We must seed a new consciousness… drawing its inspiration from perennial spiritual and moral insights, intuition, and experience. We call this new awareness interspiritual, implying not the homogenization of religion, but the recovering of the shared mystic heart beating in the center of the world’s deepest spiritual traditions. - Wayne Teasdale, Catholic Monk, The Mystic Heart
It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. - Thich Nhat Hanh
Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.
What you seek is seeking you. - Rumi
