Final Tweaks to my Portland Itinerary

By this time tomorrow I’ll be at the Atlanta airport preparing to board my flight to Portland, OR. Thanks to Chuck Cooper and the Institute for Progressive Spirituality for arranging my travel plans and itinerary while in Portland.

As always seems to be the case, we’ve made a few last minute changes. Here’s the itinerary, and all events listed here are open to the public. If you’re in the area, I hope I’ll see you at one or more of these events.

October 28, 2010; 7:00 PM — “Celtic Spirituality and Christian Mysticism: One Wisdom, Two Traditions” talk and booksigning at the New Renaissance Bookshop, 1338 NW 23rd Ave, Portland, Oregon 97210. Cost $12.00.

October 29; 11:30 AM – 2:00 PM — Lunch meeting at the Muslim Educational Trust, 10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, OR 97223. This will be an opportunity to break bread and engage in friendly interfaith dialogue. After lunch, we will participate in the Islamic community’s prayer service. Cost for the catered meal from a local Middle Eastern restaurant is $15.00, including gratuity.

After an optional group lunch, the afternoon will include time for small group interaction and shared contemplative practice, with a final reflection by me. Cost $45.00 (does not include lunch).

October 31 —

    Great addition to the weekend with the shared lunch on Friday. I’m looking forward to it. I’ve called a friend who lived in Iraq for some time to ask about proper dress. She said that they’ll likely be very gracious and to just make sure to dress modestly. I’ll bring a head covering as well. But if you have any additional information about requirements or suggestions, I’d appreciate it.
