I am presently writing my Doctorate of Ministry degree for Wisdom University (founded as the University of Creation Spirituality by Matthew Fox). I am looking at the two primary spiritual writers that have deeply influenced me in the last eleven years; Brother Wayne Teasdale and Dr. Parker Palmer. Of course, all of you know about Wayne. Dr. Palmer comes from a Quaker tradition and uses it as a basis for what he calls Circles of Trust. Wayne was hoping that this movement would lead to being in dialogue and having encounters across traditions in a new, profound way. I believe that Dr. Parker principles for Circles of Trust, which are called the Touchstones, serve as an excellent foundation for this work. I would like us to discuss what interspiritual encounters would look like and how they would be different than the more traditional interfaith framework.
