The Engaged Spiritual Life: Awakening Individually and Collectively in a Time of Need
Friday, August 11,
7:00 – 9:00 pm
This evening is open to the public as a freely-offered introduction to Engaged Buddhism. This evening is the start of a weekend non-residential retreat, but may be attended without prior registration as a stand-alone, introductory event.
For more information about the full weekend retreat, please see details on the August 12 calendar listing here.
By the time Donald Rothberg was in his early twenties, he knew he had two vocations. He wanted to dedicate himself to justice and social change, and he wanted to commit himself to exploring the depths of human consciousness-to an awakening of our deeper spiritual nature. It has been his life’s work, as an activist, organizer, writer, and teacher, to bring these two paths together and to reveal how deeply they require one another.
The Engaged Spiritual Life is the fruit of this work. Skillfully weaving together basic spiritual teachings, real-life examples, social context, and exercises, Rothberg provides a clear, thorough, and compelling guide for those interested in connecting inner and outer transformation. At the core of the book are ten spiritual principles and associated practices that will enable readers to engage all the parts of their lives-whether personal, interpersonal, or political-into a seamless whole.
