The Interspiritual Dialogue

Regions: North America
Topics: Religion / Spirituality

The Interfaith initiatives of the late twentieth century-the opening of dialogue and sharing of wisdom among leaders and practitioners of different religions — have flowered into an exciting new possibility for spiritual exploration and expression. The late Wayne Teasdale coined the term "Interspirituality" to describe this new spiritual perspective, where beneath the diversity of theological beliefs, rites, and observances lies a deeper unity of experience that is our shared spiritual heritage.

For the first time in 25 years, video cameras were invited to document The Snowmass Interspiritual Conference, led by Cistercian monk and author Father Thomas Keating. The Interspiritual Dialogue with Father Thomas Keating illustrates a new era of spiritual consciousness and a new level of communication and exchange among many of the world’s spiritual and contemplative traditions. In inter­spiritual dialogue, the emphasis is not on formal theology, religious law or external observances, but on that which emerges from the depths of spiritual experience among dedicated spiritual practitioners in an atmosphere of trust. The focus is on the experiential rather than merely the theological, the interior content rather than the external form.

The Interspiritual Dialogue with Father Thomas Keating provides a unique experience of committed spiritual seekers from many faiths, coming together to uncover and identify the core truths that lie at the heart of all world religions.

As anyone who knows anything about IPF will realize my energy is curtailed - so I am concentrating on two passions 'inter-spirituality' and (street) photography - and the relationship between the two. In the past I would have said that: 1) I run courses & give talks at conferences and in universities and colleges in the UK, China, USA, Canada, Scandinavia etc. - 2) I provide materials, outlines and lessons for Schools. - 3) My range of interests include personal development, learning and teaching, photography and film, the arts generally, spirituality and educational practice and theory. - 4) At the same time I continue developing the human-centred studies SunWALK PDS (People Development System) - a whole-person, high-achievement model for individuals, and for use in, NGOs, schools and other organizations. - 5) The key question that continues to animate me and my work remains, "What is it to be fully and positively human?" - Contact me via onesummit AT gmail DOT com (replace At with@ etc.). - All good wishes Roger (Dr Roger Prentice) . For those interested; My first degree is in English and Education. My masters is in Adult & Community Education. My doctorate presented a new holistic meta-model of education called SunWALK.
