Sheila Hixon—Mystics From All Traditions on WBAI “In the Spirit”
Thursday, June 22, 2017
The Soul-Directed Life Book Club Selection for June: Conversations in the Spirit
Sixth Container of Love: Mystics
Did you miss the '70s spiritual revolution? (yeah, me too) Don’t worry. It was captured on tape as Lex Hixon interviewed hundreds of new interspiritual voices on WBAI’s famous program, “In the Spirit.” More than 300 of those programs have been salvaged. Sheila Hixon compiled and edited 33 of them in an heart-opening time capsule, Conversations in the Spirit. She joins us to talk about Lex, their deep study of multiple traditions, and what it was like to sit with Krishnamurti, Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, Mary Bailey, Huston Smith, and more. Sheila is blessing us with clips from those shows, selected just for The Soul-Directed Life!
