About The Presentation

All religions, regardless of their different beliefs, share common spiritual practices that have evolved over thousands of years. What are these practices; what is their purpose; how are they relevant to our modern experience? This talk will explore the rich religious heritage of prayer, meditation, fasting, pilgrimage and retreat. We will examine the commonality between these practices and the reasons they create profound psychological and spiritual effects. Most important, we will discuss how to integrate these “spiritual tools” into our busy lives.
