Dear Meetup Friends, although we are not yet ready to resume our regular meetups, I wish to let you know about an interesting event that is upcoming in December.
A friend of mine, Milton Clapp, a long-time practitioner of meditation and Buddhist-Christian interfaith studies will be giving a speech on December 8th on Interfaith Meditation. He says, "I will be making the case for a 'Universal Path' as the basis for a spiritual journey, one that is "peaceful while progressing" (Kosho Uchiyama), one supported through the regular practice of meditation. Putting aside conflicting theological language and concepts for the time being, I hope we can uncover an available spiritual territory that is within each one of us not dependent on fixed beliefs but one seen directly. As J. Krishnamurti says in The Awakening of Intelligence, 'The act of seeing is the only truth'---page 187. This does not mean it is necessary to throw out our spiritual images and concepts. We cannot operate as human beings from such an idealistic view as this. Maybe calling it a refresher course on the spiritual nature of human life fits here."
Here are some of the voices Milton plans to make part of the discussion:
This is a chance to come back to the table to examine freshly the deepest core of self---'Our Ultimate Concern" said Paul Tillich.
No need to RSVP on our meetup page as I do not organize this event, just put on your radar and join us if you are interested.
