Meditación InterEspiritual: Un Proceso de Siete
Pasos Inspirados en las Tradiciones Espirituales del Mundo
Prologue by Alejandra Warden
(Spanish Edition)

La Meditación InterEspiritual es un proceso universal extraído de las tradiciones espirituales del mundo. Ayuda a las personas a cultivar la paz interior, la sabiduría y la compasión. Su proceso de siete pasos permite a las personas de diferentes prácticas espirituales crear comunidades contemplativas comprometidas basadas en la empatía, la comprensión, la experiencia meditativa compartida y el servicio compasivo para el bien común. La Meditación Interespiritual es el siguiente paso en la evolución de la Sabiduría Interespiritual y una piedra angular para la paz entre los pueblos de todas las religiones”. El mundo interreligioso es largo en la conversación y corto en la práctica. Si bien estamos ansiosos por aprender las prácticas espirituales de los demás, lo que necesitamos es una práctica que trascienda nuestras respectivas tradiciones y nos involucre en una búsqueda más inclusiva del despertar. InterSpiritual de Ed Bastian ofrece precisamente eso.
