Religions of the World *NEW*

How can we connect to divine playful energies in ourselves, our surroundings, and our universe? On this sacred journey, we’ll explore how wisdom from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and indigenous people can help heal all of us. Questions we’ll explore: why “Israel” means “To wrestle with God,” how to tune into Christ Consciousness, how surrendering moves us to dance with all, how yoga connects, how presence may reveal each moment’s humor, how caring for our earth re-births us. We'll read and discuss The World's Religions by Huston Smith and The World's Wisdom by Philip Novaak. Instructor: Michael Koran
