Talk on the Turn: Sciences and Religion. “The Animist Turn with Reference to the Soul”

This is an invitation to people living in Charlottesville and in the academic community who are interested in talking about deep living spirituality, mysticism, religion, and the contemplatives. This is conversations of religious groups in the style of the Impact Movement.

But here we hope to relax and hear what local people in the other religions feel about spirit. This would also be along with the academic social sciences, psychologies, humanities, religious studies, anthropology, the arts, and others. We often deny ourselves this conversation because we have other work duties. We have muzzled the ox that treads the corn. The old ox should be nourished!

Anyone could talk. It would be exciting. We might be able to talk with various practitioners of healing, ministers of religion, and those that know for themselves something of the spirit--right across the board. And on the other hand, there are those who pursue intellectual understanding and want to pass the time of day and say what they really think.

Would you be in town on Thursday, June 14 at seven o’clock PM? Bring anyone else who might want to come. People could vote on what they want to do.
