-Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault
AUTHOR AND TEACHER

-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
AUTHOR & PAST PRESIDENT,
PACIFICA GRADUATE UNIVERSITY
"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
FOUNDER, AMERICAN SUFI MUSLIM ASSOCIATION
