During Advent, the nights grow longer and our sense of a profound and holy silence deepens. Then at the Winter Solstice that holy miracle occurs: The light begins to grow again. We can think of no better time of year to reflect together on how mysticism lights up our everyday lives, in an interplay of reverence and wonder where nothing is excluded from the heart.

We all have been given a mission to be spiritual companions to our children, grandchildren, and young friends. There are many blessings to be shared across the generations. We also can do more to respect and cherish children's spirituality. How do they express it? Through creativity, mystical experiences, questions, goodness, free spirit, and much more.
For millennia, teaching stories have been used to convey the wisdom of the world's religions and spiritual paths. Sacred texts are full of them: the stories about God's activity in the Hebrew Bible, Jesus' parables about the kingdom of God in the Gospels, the epic accounts of the gods and goddesses in Hindu scriptures. From the oral traditions, we have tales about Buddhist teachers, Hasidic rebbes, Sufi dervishes, and Taoist masters; fables; fairy tales; even jokes.
Please enjoy this complimentary course that you can access at any time.
An Online Course in Critical Thinking and Creative Compassion to Create Deep Dialogue
This course intends to meet a great challenge: to empower people to live in society with genuine respect and mutual care for self and others. Human relations break down when worlds collide. Violence and abuse arise in ethnic conflicts, racial hatred, gender issues, ideological confrontations, and ecological indifference. This course teaches content and skills that help transform these challenges into opportunities for a deepened sense of one’s own worldview and an awakened awareness of the worldviews of others who share a different worldview from one’s own.
