Loyola House is hosting a virtual multi-faith retreat series on inter-spirituality and comparative mysticism.  Conducted by leaders in the various traditions, the series includes four weekend retreats (Saturdays and Sundays) throughout May, June and July, beginning with an introductory session. Times listed are in EST.

In this introductory session, Prof. Jorge Ferrer will offer us the framework and tools to more deeply appreciate and understand the rich diversity of the various spiritual and mystical traditions. Having extensively taught, published, and publicly presented about the topic of inter-spirituality and comparative mysticism, he will be leading us through a brief meditation then discussing various ways to approach and understand spirituality and mysticism through a comparative approach. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of dialogical inquiry, mutual transformation, and critical pluralism for respectful and fruitful inter-religious exchanges. This will be an interactive session where participants will be able to ask questions and make comments.

This introductory session will be hosted on the online Zoom platform…sign up by emailing registration@ignatiusguelph.ca here.
