BRO. WAYNE TEASDALE ON INTERSPIRITUALITY
Inter-spirituality is focused on
“the recovery of the shared mystic heart beating in the center of the world’s deepest spiritual traditions.”
‘…the sharing of ultimate experiences across traditions.’ WT p26 The Mystic Heart
“Interspiritual dialogue can underpin a new kind of inter-religious dialogue” Wayne Teasdale
“Interspirituality is not a new form of spirituality or an overarching synthesis of what exists, but a willingness and determination to taste the depth of mystical life in other traditions.
Interfaith encounter, interreligious dialogue, and the collaborations of the religions, whether through interfaith organizations or more directly in bilateral relationships, are becoming permanent features of a new global culture.
Our knowledge of other religions and cultures is likewise increasing, opening the door to a universal understanding of religion, spirituality, and culture.” A Monk in the World, Wayne Teasdale
