The Diversity and Spirituality Network announces the inaugural Spiritual Path Exploration interactive webinar series. Five people of diverse spiritual backgrounds and a facilitator and meet five times by videoconference to explore, discuss and deepen their understanding of their personal spiritual paths, and learn how their personal journey is similar and different from others.
The goal of the webinar series is to gain a deeper understanding of your own spiritual path and explore how your individual journey has been impacted by your life experience. You’ll also examine the degree to which your current understanding and experience of spirituality has been impacted by your religious or organizational affiliations, learn how these affiliations impact your current worldview, and explore – by learning from others -- how your spiritual practice might possibly be enhanced.
At the conclusion of the Exploration, you’ll understand yourself better and gain a profounder understanding of the multiple realities that define collective spiritual experience.
Content: The five sessions are structured around the following questions: Who are you? How did you get started on your spiritual path? What is important in your spiritual practice? Who, if any, have been the role models or guides who have been important in your journey? To what degree is your path connected to a religious tradition or other community? What are your hopes and fears as you continue on your spiritual journey?
