Interspirituality is essentially an agent of a universal mysticism and integral spirituality.
We often walk the interspiritual or intermystical path in an intuitive attempt to reach a more complete truth.
That final integration, a deep convergence, is an integral spirituality. Bringing together all the great systems of spiritual wisdom, practice, insight, reflection, experience, and science provides a truly integral understanding of spirituality in its practical application in our lives, regardless of our tradition.”
― Brother Wayne Teasdale – from The Mystic Heart
It’s been over 20 years since Brother Wayne Teasdale wrote “The Mystic Heart” – a manifesto on the power of living spirit-filled lives, as well as the universality of this spirituality, from which all the world’s great spiritual traditions point towards, and is available and accessible to all. This spiritual paradigm has been called “InterSpiritual” – rooted in open curiosity and acceptance of the marvelous diversity of spiritual perspectives, processes and paths from many spiritual, philosophical, mythological and psychological traditions. At the heart of InterSpirituality is an awareness of interconnection with one another, which becomes the foundation for active engagement in the world. This growing awareness and practice has been advocated for by His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Father Thomas Keating, and many others.
