Spiritual Paths Foundation

The Foundation promotes peace, respect, and mutual understanding between peoples of diverse religious and spiritual traditions.  It explores and celebrates the spiritual dimension in the human quest to integrate mind, body and spirit.  Its supports the emergence of InterSpiritual Wisdom as a new paradigm for a new millennium.

from their website,

The religious landscape of the world is changing. No longer solely dominated by separate and securely entrenched religious institutions, the religious lives of people, especially people in the United States, Canada and other postindustrial nations, are increasingly defined by a sense of individual freedom, universality and association with more than one religious or spiritual tradition.

By encouraging InterSpirituality we do not intend the blending of religions or the ending of religious diversity. On the contrary, by InterSpirituality we mean the increasing spiritual creativity emerging from the meeting of, and dialogue between, the world’s major religious traditions. This meeting acknowledges differences between religions and affirms the greater unity they all share. This unity provides the common ground from which religious diversity flowers. People are discovering that their respect for and love of the religion of their birth need not preclude a similar respect for the full range of human spiritual creativity.

This discovery is fueling the growing interest in InterSpiritual study, practice, and lifestyle. We aim, therefore, to encourage “the recovery of the shared mystic heart beating in the center of the world’s deepest spiritual traditions.” InterSpirituality is a profound way of working toward the goal of global understanding, respect, and peace by elucidating the common themes, methodologies, meanings and truths of the world’s religions while respecting the unique gifts and particularities of each tradition.
