One of the great paradoxes of being a writer (and speaker) on contemplative spirituality is that I essentially use words to invite people into a wordless place. Ah, sweet irony.
And while that is usually a matter of writing, I love to speak about silence as well. Today (September 18, 2013) I am going to be on Rabbi Rami Shapiro‘s How to be a Holy Rascal internet radio show. Hope you can tune in. The show will be broadcast live at 11 AM Central time (Noon Eastern time, 10 AM Mountain time, 9 AM Pacific time), and to hear it, just visit this link: www.unity.fm/program/howtobeaholyrascal and click on the “Listen Now” button. I know we will be talking about contemplation and mysticism, but I suspect we will also explore interspirituality and the thorny question of the relationship between religion and spirituality.
Since it will be a live broadcast, you can also call in if you have a question for Rabbi Rami or me. Call 888.55.UNITY (888-558-6489) any time while the show is on (11 AM – Noon Central time).
If you miss the live broadcast, a link to a recording of the show will be posted probably by tomorrow. Once I have that link, I’ll post it to my Twitter feed.
And speaking of recorded interviews, I invite you to take some time to listen to my two-part interview on David Dault‘s Things Not Seen Radio. This pre-recorded interview looks at contemplative spirituality primarily from a Christian perspective although we do discuss my interfaith wanderings as well. Here are links to the two parts of the interview:
- “My Job is to Love” The Path of Contemplative Spirituality, Part One
- “My Job is to Love” The Path of Contemplative Spirituality, Part Two
So happy listening (and call in today, if you can!)
