Spiritual Direction Colorado is pleased to present The Interfaith Amigos for our 2018 Spirituality Conference! Join us on February 2-3, for the annual spirituality conference: "Promises and Perils of Interfaith Dialogue: Creating an Effective Foundation for Our Times". This year our speakers are
the Interfaith Amigos! Imam Jamal Rahman, Rabbi Ted Falcon, and Pastor Don Mackenzie started working together after 9/11. Since then they have brought their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor to audiences all over the U.S., as well as Canada, Israel-Palestine, and Japan. This past year, they were the plenary speakers at Spiritual Directors International's 2017 Seeking Connection International Conference in Toronto, Ontario.  They are the authors of three books including the recent, and timely, Finding Peace Through Spiritual Practice 

Friday, Feb. 2 Evening presentation: "Promises and Perils of Interfaith Dialogue"

The Interfaith Amigos share some of the promises as well as the problems related to developing an interfaith dialogue that can support collaborative action in our world. With warmth, wit, and wisdom, these three teachers guide an interfaith process that opens us to spiritual treasures that support healing and wholeness. 

Saturday, Feb. 3 Daytime program: "Creating an Effective Foundation for Interfaith Dialogue"

The Interfaith Amigos guide participants in developing a foundation for truly effective communication and purposeful collaboration. In this workshop, participants are invited to experience how to move beyond polarization and stereotyping to more authentically meet the other.
