The 19th Annual Festival of Faiths holds a focus on our relationship with nature and how this relationship connects to our faith and daily living. Sacred Earth Sacred Self is our best effort to connect with key existential and spiritual aspects of life, and, on the way, to do some true cost accounting of our situation on Earth.
Speakers at this year’s Festival offer deep perspectives on our current crisis of disharmony and how we might best bridge the gap between our heads’ and hearts’ desires while helping identify what is most needed.
The Earth is sacred, as are the people of Earth. Earth and Self came forth from the same Sacred Source and have been united through a reciprocal relationship with each other. In our unity, we share a common fate. Human health physically and spiritually depends on a healthy ecosphere, and this, in turn, depends on the kind of relationship that we as sentient human beings create with Earth and all the life that it sustains.
