Join us at 12 noon (not 11 AM as originally announced) this coming Sunday, October 31st (Halloween) for a deep, uplifting conversation with Brother David Steindl-Rast.
He’ll join us live from Vienna, Austria, for a conversation on “Great Full-Ness, an Open Heart, and Cultural Transformation”.
When Brother David speaks, he enters into your heart and mind. Something profound and true happens to you, and you know it. He consistently creates the climate in which his profound philosophical understandings and gentle but profound teachings on gratefulness can be deeply received, without fear, and then explored in the heart.
He does much more than speak about spiritual life — he transmits it with the authority of the monk who is living it. For Brother David there hardly seems to be a distinction between teaching, preaching, praying and meditating. All of these for him are one process and he has the ability to invite his listeners to become part of his own experience, and to enter with him in the places that fill him with gratitude and joy.
We will be blessed with the opportunity to engage with him on a holiday — albeit an often profane one — Halloween, All Hallow’s Eve.
With Thomas Merton, Brother David was a pioneer of the resurgence of contemplative practice in Christianity, and he was one of the first Christian mystics to seriously practice Zen meditation with many of the great Japanese Roshis, including Yasutani and Suzuki. He also held Paul Tillich’s chair at Cornell University. He is probably most widely credited as a primary pioneer of inter-religious dialog and of an Integral Panentheist Christianity. Join us for a dialog with a true practitioner, who radiates and transmits authenticity, humility, gratitude, and happiness.
