More About Finding Peace Through Spiritual Practice by Don Mackenzie; Ted Falcon; Imam Jamal Rahman
 
 
 
Overview

If we want to heal our personal and planetary problems, we have to move beyond talking to spiritual practice.

Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Imam Jamal Rahman, who have become known as the Interfaith Amigos, believe truly effective interfaith dialogue can inhibit the demonization of any religion. Their work together, which began with the horrors of 9/11, aims to help us see all authentic spiritual traditions as sacred avenues to a shared Universal Reality--when we achieve this, the healing of our shared personal and planetary problems begins.

In this, their third book, the Interfaith Amigos look at the specific issues we face in a pluralistic society and the spiritual practices that can help us transcend those roadblocks to effective collaboration on the critical issues of our time. Focusing on the interconnection of spirituality and authentic interfaith dialogue, they examine:

  • How Spiritual Awareness Can Heal Our Own Traditions
  • Beyond Polarization: Confronting Our Most Personal Obstacle
  • Spiritual Paths to Environmental Stewardship
  • Spiritual Paths to Social Justice
  • How to Make Spirituality a Way of Life

This book helps awaken readers to the spiritual consciousness within each of us that provides the foundation for much-needed healing. Each chapter includes spiritual practices to aid us in reclaiming the deep spiritual truths of our own being.

This book by the self-proclaimed Interfaith Amigos (Getting to the Heart of Interfaith)—MacKenzie is a Protestant pastor, Falcon is a rabbi, and Rahman is a Sufi imam—promotes a meditative spiritual practice intended to help create inner healing and thus help practitioners promote change in a world suffering from violence and environmental damage. As part of a program to foster a sustainable, lifelong engagement in activist causes, the book includes exercises meant to prevent and heal idealism burnout and despair. Each exercise is rooted in ideas and ideals from the authors’ faith traditions, in many cases deriving from the mystic, meditative strand in each. Meant to stand alone as a spiritual guidebook, the book is nevertheless best understood in the context of the Amigos’ experience of interfaith exploration and the wisdom derived from it. The writing is uneven, but the book is accessible and engaging. It’s likely to appeal to those with interests in interfaith, the causes of peace and environmental activism, and contemplative practice. (Aug.)
