WHAT:

February 21: 7th Interfaith Wisdom Circle

Opening to spiritual wisdom — a global video conference circle of people who seek to share the sacred and serve the world.

Celebrating the Spiritual Guides Who Have Shone
Light into Our Lives
Professor Dr. Ibrahim Farajaje, a dear friend and spiritual mentor to many people of diverse faiths, races, and backgrounds in the Bay Area and around the world, left this world on February 8, after a massive heart attack. Those of us who had the blessing of knowing him are in mourning.

In Ibrahim's honor, the theme of this month's Interfaith Wisdom Circle is remembering our spiritual guides who walked with us along the way. Rev. Charles Gibbs will moderate the conversation.
 
Ibrahim Baba was a pioneer in building bridges across bountaries that usually separate people. Deeply learned in Islam and Sufism, in Judaism and Jewish mysticism, in Christianity and Buddhism, fluent in 16 lauguages, equally at home in Istanbul, Turkey and Berkeley, California, he travelled the world for decades, leading studies, producing videos, and delivering papers, on the interrelatedness of the world’s spiritual traditions as they play out through the rich diversity of the world’s cultural contexts. In recent years he was Provost and Professor of Islamic Studies at Star King School of the Ministry, whose mission is "is to educate people for Unitarian Universalist ministry and for progressive religious leadership in society."

We'll begin the circle by viewing Ibrahim Baba's opening sermon at Star King's Symposium 2012.
