Global Spirit – The Interspiritual Dialogue with Father Thomas Keating
Directed by Stephen Olsson
Global Spirit TV 05/13 Documentary
The late Brother Wayne Teasdale coined the term “interspiritual” to describe “the shared mystic heart beating in the center of the world’s deepest spiritual traditions.” An interspiritual approach goes beyond interfaith discussions about theologies and beliefs to a deeper dialogue arising from the exchange of experiences of spiritual intimacy and unity. It encourages people from different religious traditions to sit and meditate together and to try spiritual practices with each other in reverence and openness.
Viewers of Global Spirit now have the opportunity to see how interspiritual dialogue works as practitioners from a variety of religious traditions gather for the Snowmass Interspiritual Conference hosted by Father Thomas Keating. An eminent Trappist monk, author of many books on contemplative practices, and spiritual guide of the international organization Contemplative Outreach, he has worked for years fostering understanding among the world’s religions.
