The InterSpiritual Mandala offers a universal, non-sectarian, and holistic process for creating profound meaning and purpose in our lives.  Our learning and practice community celebrates the marvelous diversity of perspectives, learning styles, practices and beliefs.

The Mandala Course

Our new 8-week InterSpiritual Mandala Course will be a fun opportunity to search the world’s spiritual and secular traditions to find answers that will give meaning and purpose to your life.

Practicing the ISM 7-Step Meditation

This Mandala Course is only offered to those who have completed the InterSpiritual Meditation course. This is because ISM provides a contemplative foundation for integrating wisdom from a profound diversity of sources.

Harnessing Your Spiritual Styles

The Mandala Course begins by completing our personal profile tools that will help us honor, harness and harmonize our Spiritual Styles to find answers to our major spiritual questions.  These profile tools help us discover our natural ways of knowing, i.e, the styles and questions that often lay hidden beneath the surface of our minds.  Spiritual Styles are the lenses through which we perceive and process spiritual questions, answers and practices.  They deeply influence our spiritual perspectives and our meditative practices.  When we honor, harness and harmonize our styles we bring our entire being into the pursuit of meaning, purpose and practice.

Finding Answers to your Big Spiritual Questions

Next, we harness our spiritual styles to explore answers and practices offered by wise spiritual and secular sources.  When we honor, harness and harmonize our natural styles, personally meaningful answers can emerge and our spiritual path and practice can be energized and expanded.

"ISM is an open-hearted and truly universal practice. If ever there was a practice to help us get spiritually unstuck, this is it."
-Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault
"Spiritual Paths brings together the wisdom of authentic teachers from the worlds spiritual traditions, provides an excellent curriculum based on those traditions, and leads us toward a new paradigm of InterSpiritual education and practice."
-Rabbi Zalman Schachter
"Dr. Bastian's work is a great and important breakthrough, as so many believe they are not spiritual because they do not follow a particular dogma..."
-Dr. Carol Pearson
"I am particularly excited by this initiative of Edward Bastian and the Spiritual Paths Foundation. It as a sea change in the evolution of what we used to call the ecumenical activity. I see us coming into the next phase of inter-religious dialogue, to introduce one another to the inner experience of each others faith traditions. For when we do, we shall come to the realization that the end is One."
-Imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf
