InterSpiritual Dialogue 'n Action (ISDnA est. 2002 with Brother Wayne, initially as InterSpiritual Dialogue, ISD). ISDnA is your host at the Multiplex and its website www.isdna.org is the Multiplex "Maingate". The "Maingate" also contains all the content of the original ISDnA website, including the extensive archives and materials about Brother Wayne's vision and work. Your host at the Multiplex "Visitor's Center" is the Broadband Contemplative Alliances Network (bcan.ws, est. 2004), another name reserved by ISD during the period of its work with Bro. Wayne and now linked as multiplex.isdna.org. The 501(c)(3) qualified not-for-profit religious association behind the network remains the original InterSpiritual Dialogue (ISD) formed with Bro. Wayne in 2002. It's original incorporators, Drs. Kurt Johnson and Tom Downes, and Martha Gallahue (the latter both also of the UN NGO Commitee on Spirituality, Values and Global Concerns) remain, along with representation from the One Spirit Seminary and Learning Alliance in New York City, ISDnA's education partner. This includes Revs. Michael Pergola, Karen Watt and Diane Berke. The logo, of ongoing unfolding, and original www.isdna.org website were designed and are maintained by Aaron Froehlich, a volunteer and friend of Bro. Wayne. The Multiplex and Visitors Center were designed and are maintained by Kurt Johnson. Contact is Kurt Johnson at email@example.com and/or the registered business address, 135 Eastern Parkway 7G, Brooklyn, New York 11238-6024. See Disclaimer and General Statement at bottom of page.

The pyramid image, often shown with an ascending column of light, is from the work of our artist Dafna Mordecai and is variously used as a symbol for the Multiplex. As a triune figure, tt has many meanings across the world's traditions. The similarity of this triangular figure with light ascending to the logo of one of our most linked associate sites, Namaste, was a completely 'accidental' synchronicity as both sites were in development.

Key Participants in the InterSpiritual Multiplex Team

How were teachers, organizations and networks chosen for the Multiplex?
Our basic criterion was a historical relationship with Brother Wayne or with his work as it has unfolded since ISD was founded in 2002 (becoming ISDnA in 2005). This included not only friends and associates in the growing Interspiritual work worldwide but persons, organizations and networks we have become associated with who represent either InterSpirituality, Sacred Activism (as in Wayne's A Monk in the World 2003) or the World Shift work inherent in spiritual awakening. Accordingly, our selection is not exhaustive but, rather, represents those with some relationship to Brother Wayne, his legacy, and the work that continues to unfold from it. We continue to discover such groups, so let us know about you!
