Spirituality and Public Life
Making Change from the Inside Out
Spirituality and political involvement are often understood as separate disciplines navigating different realities. This series will explore their necessary linkage and overlap. The testimonies of Jesus, Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Thich Nhat Hanh, Martin Luther King Jr and many others speaks to the integration of spirituality and politics that is transformative and life-giving.
While the starting point will include a consideration of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures, the content will include voices from various religious and non-religious traditions. Participants will be invited into a lively engagement that will include rigorous reading, community building, and active dialogue. Sessions will include some meditation, lecture, video and lots of talking.
