To help us live in true connection with each other Andrew Harvey introduces The Five Sacred Passions, emanating directly from the heart of the divine. A renaissance man, an erudite scholar, and so accessible, funny, and generous as a teacher, Andrew calls people who are interested in an inner spiritual path to also take it out and give it as a gift to the world.
In the second half of the program, Joan Borysenko has the exceptional ability to make spiritual work truly accessible to her students. A highly trained scientist, psychotherapist and mystic, she focuses on integrating these three disciplines, exemplifying her belief that there are many paths to the Divine. Research shows that 42% of Americans are religious dropouts, but highly spiritual. This openness to paths other than their own is an expression of a deepening understanding that the very heart or core of all traditions similarly reflect kindness and compassion.
