Description

If we want to heal our personal and planetary problems, we have to move beyond talking to spiritual practice.

Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Imam Jamal Rahman, who have become known as the Interfaith Amigos, believe truly effective interfaith dialogue can inhibit the demonization of any religion. Their work together, which began with the horrors of 9/11, aims to help us see all authentic spiritual traditions as sacred avenues to a shared Universal Reality--when we achieve this, the healing of our shared personal and planetary problems begins.

In this, their third book, the Interfaith Amigos look at the specific issues we face in a pluralistic society and the spiritual practices that can help us transcend those roadblocks to effective collaboration on the critical issues of our time. Focusing on the interconnection of spirituality and authentic interfaith dialogue, they examine:

How Spiritual Awareness Can Heal Our Own TraditionsBeyond Polarization: Confronting Our Most Personal ObstacleSpiritual Paths to Environmental StewardshipSpiritual Paths to Social JusticeHow to Make Spirituality a Way of Life

This book helps awaken readers to the spiritual consciousness within each of us that provides the foundation for much-needed healing. Each chapter includes spiritual practices to aid us in reclaiming the deep spiritual truths of our own being.
