Radical Spirituality and Sacred Activism
Radical Spirituality and Sacred Activism is about personal transformation and social change and what it means to live a deeply spiritual life in a postmodern world.
We take inspiration from young people from all over the world who started the global movement for justice and solidarity by camping out on Wall Street, by taking over their cities in nonviolent occupations, and by often risking their lives to stand up for the dream that is emerging in their hearts.
We connect these new emerging dreams with inspirations and visions of spiritual giants like Father Bede Griffiths, Mahatma Gandhi, Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King, and others whose lives reflected what it means to live a transformed life and to be a healing presence in the world.
Ultimately, this show is about reflecting on ideas and dreams that can help us build a movement we sometimes call “new monasticism,” where people can gather in small communities of friends, commit to a deep contemplative and spiritual practice, share in prayer, help each other discover their calling and gifts, and then through prayer and healthful presence build courage together to live as an expression of God’s dream of compassion, justice, and solidarity in the world.
