  • Inviting the Stranger

    Saturday, June 3, 1 - 5 PM, Seattle First Baptist Church,
    1111 Harvard Ave
    RSVP to events@sdiworld.org by Thursday, June 1, for this free event.
    Many of us feel besieged these days, and can fall back on the instinct to build barriers instead of bridges to community and understanding. How might we respond differently?
    Join participants from a wide variety of spiritual traditions for an afternoon of learning from presenters Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, Miriam Frey, Genjo Marinello Osho, The Rev. Maria R. Barrera, Anil Singh Molares, MTS, Imam Jamal Rahman and Rabbi Ted Falcon and engaging in small group discussions. Through peaceful dialogue and contemplative listening, we can look beyond our fears and differences to encourage our similarities and cultivate positive change in our communities.
    Learn more at the Spiritual Directors International website.

Of Rewards and Punishments

Rewards and punishments live in the land of ego, of our separate identities, always striving for a completeness that is beyond them. The prophetic expresses an inclusive wisdom, a more universal guidance of our Greater Self awakening to more universal truths.

from Weekly Focus
The Weekly Focus concludes with a meditation supporting the essence of the teaching.

Spiritual guide, author, teacher and therapist
Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD, has been a student and teacher of Jewish meditation and Kabbalah for over forty years. With gentleness and humor, he offers unique insight into spirituality while deeply affirming the integrity of each individual being.
As part of the Interfaith Amigos, Rabbi Ted explores the frontiers of interfaith spirituality. Karen Armstrong calls their "exuberant and courageous" book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, "an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times."
