Continuing our discussion about social change and activism from the standpoint of consciousness, this month we are highlighting the work of Andrew Harvey.
Andrew Harvey is a poet, writer, teacher and mystic. At the age of 21, he became the youngest person ever to be awarded the Fellow of All Souls College, England's highest academic honor. He has written and edited over 30 books, including Dialogues with a Modern Mystic, The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi, and Hidden Journey. He has taught at Oxford, Cornell and Hobart and William Smith College, and was the subject of the 1993 BBC documentary "The Making of a Mystic." He is the Founder of the Institute for Sacred Activism in Oak Park, Illinois.
Are activists lacking interests in spirituality, too busy focusing on trying to change 'others'? Do spiritual communities tend to ignore social issues, saying "You need to change yourself first"? We'll explore these questions and how personal and collective transformations could intersect.
