Great Spiritual traditions proclaim that transformation, personally and planetary are interconnected. During this program, we will integrate theological reflection, spiritual practices and our stories. People who changed their lives and also the world, will inspire us: Dorothy Day, Howard Thurman, Albert Schweitzer, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Thich Nhat Hanh, Martin Luther King, and Oscar Romero. Stories of spiritual transformation from guides such as Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, Brother Lawrence, Pierre de Caussade, Rumi, Francis and Clare of Assisi, will lead us on our journey.
