Mysticism: The Sacred Fire at the Heart of Religion

 —  —

Osher Institute of Life Long Learning, College of Extended Studies, San Diego State University, 5250 Campanile Drive, San Diego, CA

Join us for this six-week course. What do Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, Laozi, and Moses all have in common? They were all mystics. They moved away from contemporary religious institutions toward a powerful, transformative, subjective, and direct experience of the divine outside all doctrines and hierarchies. Mystics the world over often stand in conflict with their host traditions because of their radical stance, yet mainstream religion relies on their groundbreaking insights. Join us as we study the words, experiences, and insights of the world’s mystics and feel the fire that set them alight. The Osher Institute is a non-credit, university-style education experience open to everyone over 50 years old (but last time I checked they weren't checking IDs). Easy registration, easy parking, and a wonderful community of learners gathered around deep inquiry and meaningful learning.

Classes and Talks:

I offer a wide variety of learning opportunities in short and long formats at numerous venues around San Diego like The Osher Institute in the College of Extended Studies at San Diego State University, San Diego Oasis, as well as spiritual centers like The Unity Center, Vision: A Center for Spiritual Living, Unity of El Cajon, and First Church Unitarian Universalist in San Diego.

And of course as a professor of philosophy and humanities I also teach a number of semester-length, college-credit courses at Southwestern College like world religions, Asian philosophy, world mythology, and ethics.


Full Moon Sangha:

Beginning on October 1, 2018, and repeating on the first Monday of each month thereafter, join me for the Full Moon Sangha at Vision: A Center for Spiritual Living in San Diego, California -- a one hour gathering featuring guided meditation and spiritual renewal. And in the meantime, take advantage of the online version of the Full Moon Sangha for free on the Insight Timer Meditation app.

 


 Musical Performances:

As a songwriter, acoustic guitarist, and singer I perform regularly through San Diego county at a wide variety of venues.
