I have been turning to Spirituality and Practice for many years now. It started about ten years ago when I discovered the Alphabet for Spiritual Literacy and realized how helpful it could be for me as a college teacher. I taught the world's religions to college undergraduates for 39 years, and had been looking for a way to help them understand that the religions of the world are not belief and rituals alone, or even about identity and community, but about experiences; and that these experiences were not all the same. The alphabet came at just the right time, and it helped me (and my students) name the experiences that were important to people of different faiths and paths. Additionally, many of my students were spiritual independents: that is, not associated with any particular religion. And yet they, too, could understand and appreciate the experiences. With that I began to wonder if the same might apply to the general public, so I led workshops in my local community using the alphabet in libraries and in interfaith settings. And I also realized how helpful the alphabet could be for me as a person. I, too, needed to be enlivened by attention and compassion, imagination and playfulness, forgiveness and wonder. The alphabet helped me (and still helps me) better become the person I'd like to become. As this was happening, I simultaneously realized what a complete treasure the entire Spirituality and Practice website is: its film reviews, book reviews, music reviews, daily meditations, quotes, etc. It kept me (and keeps me) abreast of the presence of spirit in the world. The Brussats write beautifully and think beautifully. Their work over these years is, truly, a godsend. I am forever thankful. "G" is for gratitude.

I recently completed the Contemplative Writing Course. I want to acknowledge the great and deep gift that Judith Favor has been to me. I know that I will go back and read many of her insights into each topic and listen to her monthly sharing. In my survey, I neglected to add one suggested topic for future consideration. “Margins”: what are they, who is there, what are their lessons, what does it mean to be marginalized, who chooses to be marginalized???

I'm very grateful. I just signed up to the daily spiritual practices last week, and immediately had a very difficult situation arise with a colleague, over some miscommunication. These daily practices were spot on in helping me press in to work this through, both in myself and then with my colleague. The day after our difficult conversation where we shared our misunderstandings, and hugged with tears, was the practice to reflect on a difficult conversation,, and see how we were closer as a result! I shared that with my colleague, we were both touched and she commented that its time she got in touch with her spiritual side again! Thanks so much.

It never ceases to amaze me how the universe will provide you what you need when you need it. I had been feeling as though much of my efforts to create unity, empathy, tolerance, and growth were in vain. Then I came across a collective of beings that have been and are doing just what I seek to accomplish. Thank you for showing me that everything will go according to plan and I am not alone in an effort to make a change.

Hi, I enjoyed looking at your site: I did see, however, that a passage attributed to David Adam..."I weave a silence" is actually from the Ortha Nan Gaidheal or Carmina Gadelica, Alexander Charmichaels 19th century collection of Scottish Oral Literature. I saw it first in "God Makes the Rivers to Flow", Sacred Literature of the World, selected by Eknath Easwaran.---a collection that carefully references the source of each passage in the collection.

Housebound now as a senior with multiple physical challenges, I have found a wonderful place that has provided food for my soul that has been so thirsty and hungry for awhile. Bless you for your various “entries” to choose from. You are in my daily prayers of thanksgiving for the ministry you are providing for countless seniors like myself who are devoted to life long learning. especially in the area of Spirituality. May God continue to surprise you with His Love.

Wow, Hi, I would just like to say my dear sister sent me a book a couple of decades ago. 'Lame Dear', a Sioux Indian Spiritual man. About his life and journeys. Incredible resource for learning all about all and why they do what they do. Even where all the materials are derived from, right down to following ants retrieving small beads they use in the rattle, shakers. I practise morning ritual of facing East, sunrise, West, sunset, South where the ghosts in the white cloud circle the South Pole, North, where the ice and snow Gods live and dwell, to the sky above where the Eagle rains supreme. I add to the ground below that holds and feeds me. My 2 beautiful Aboriginal ones are native to the Kimberly region here of Nt. West Australia. Having spent time there and having close access to their incredible connection to land, ocean, sky and stars I realised just how universal collective consciousness connects us all if we are open and receptive to wonderful good things coming into our worlds. So similar in many ways both cultures. Is ok I add my extra bit to morning ritual. I also add to South where whales and Dolphins travel from to visit our shores. God bless.

I found your site on a list of reviews on for the film "Jesus' Son." Unlike many of American media's full-time movie reviewers, you actually get this movie. Your article provided me with some insights into this quirky film, and validated my take on its theme. Spirituality and musings about it takes up very little of my time. But then a movie like this comes along and ambushes me, and I have no choice but to surrender to its ethereal optimism.

Being raised Catholic and serving as a Catholic nun for 7 years, I wrestle with guilt trying to find God in my everyday life.

I will be completing Sister Joan's reflections on Mercy later this month and found the material so very helpful to my life at this time. I completed registration for a Richarh Rohr course for the next month and now I see you will be offering the course on Rumi and Sufi stories. Will you be offering this course again? It is impossible for me to take another course until next year. I love the offerings you make available but only have a certain window of time to relax into and deeply reflect on the courses for which I sign up. You are a blessing to the spiritual journeys of so many. I am a Spiritual companion/Retreat Director and your material helps not only for myself but enriches the lives of those with whom I journey.

It has really been life changing and inspirational for me. I have discovered so much from you and the courses you offer. And I have found that not only do I love poetry, I love to write the poems of my heart and share them with so many of the practice circles from the S & P courses that have been a blessing to me. Welcome to California! And welcome to Claremont, California! I am so grateful to have such close neighbors!

The web site is wonderful, so complete and replete with information that inspires one. I first became familiar with the authors through the book "Spiritual Literacy - Reading the Sacred in Everyday Life." I am facilitating a group at the retirement community where I work based on the book, and using the companion DVD set. When I previewed the first topic on the DVD I was disappointed, but since watching almost all of them with the group, I've come to appreciate the depth and breadth of the wisdom they embody.

I came across your sight after discovering John Phillip Newell on you tube, I thought by coincidence!!! It is all saying to me Welcome, this is where you need to be. So what a day it has been, a new journey and although I have felt alone I dont anymore. Thank you for a great connection.

As a spiritual seeker, I am pleased to say that your site is the one I turn to every time I have an opportunity.

In taking this tour, I 'discovered' your partners info and anticipate linking to many of them as well. I am inspired, educated and energized by you daily -- and have recommended your site to others countless times over the years. Boundless thanks for sharing this vast survey of resources, your energy, and your vision of hope with us all, as we share this journey -- each of us on our own path. Many blessings to you both and your dedicated co-creators.
