In a world permeated by religious strife, renewed interest in issues of faith necessitates a journey beyond the orthodox institutions many have come to mistrust. This new brand of “seeker” is looking for an open and safe environment in which to discuss unique interpretations of consciousness, spirituality, ethics, and philosophy through the world’s complex mosaic of beliefs and customs.

Best-selling author Thomas Moore explores the nature of the soul. Marion Woodman, a world-renowned Jungian therapist discusses how to consciously awaken our spirits and harmonize body and mind. Lt. General Roméo Dallaire shares his personal observations and trials during his tour in Rwanda in 1994 as he tests his faith in the face of evil. Stephen Lewis, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, identifies ways in which we can empower ourselves and others to reach out to fellow citizens in need. Finally, Martin Rutte, author of Heaven and Earth explores the relationship between our commitment to peace on earth and our will to bring this ideal to fruition. Join them for an unforgettable exploration of personal spirituality in the 21st century.
