Experience one of the most remarkable young spiritual teachers in America.
Rev. Matthew Wright
Friday Evening – Sept 27th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Unity Centre for Awakening
5840 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC
Our great spiritual traditions have often described the heart as an organ of spiritual perception–an “eye” by which we see from oneness. Through heart-awareness, we come to experience the universe qualitatively, rather than simply Quantitatively. Wisdom teachings tells us that the heart reads reality from wholeness and relationship, opening us to a world of beauty, tenderness, and love. How do we awaken the heart?
Join us for an interspiritual conversation as we explore the Path of the Heart through three primary doorways: the teachings of Sufi, Christian, and Hindu mystics. Our time together will include teaching, spiritual practice, and conversation.
