Saturday 4 pm room 1
heal and transform the world we need a spiritual consciousness
along with a political consciousness. Whether we're
atheists or belong to traditional religious communities,
social change and inner change go hand in hand. In this
insightful and profound discussion Michael Lerner will
introduce Emancipatory Spirituality and its practical
application. Discover what it takes to build a movement
that overcomes dead policy debates that fill academic
journals and the rhetoric of elected officials. Explore
fundamental principles of a vision that positions the
quest for economic and social justice, peace and ecological
sanity within the framework of a spiritual consciousness
and a practice of open-heartedness, generosity, caring
for others and outpouring of loving kindness.
