Announcing Guerrand-Hermes Forum of Interreligious Study of the Mystical and Spiritual Life

The Elijah Interfaith Institute presents the Guerrand-Hermès Forum of Interreligious Study of the Mystical and Spiritual Life. Mysticism-Elijah.Org connects scholars and seekers to a wide-range of courses, to peruse a multilingual bank of texts, essays, and probe discussion on the mystic dimensions of six major faith traditions.

Reflecting on the project, CPWR Board Trustee Anantanand Rambachan, who serves on the Elijah Institute’s team of scholars, says, “The Elijah website on the mystical traditions of the world’s religions is a rich resource for individual study and classroom instruction. While offering insights into these traditions, it does so in the context of interreligious dialogue, fostering mutual inquiry and learning. I found it enriching to be a part of these conversations.”

The website offers a tutorial video to learn the search features available, as well as a telling statement by the project’s benefactor, Guerrand-Hermès,

“I was inspired to be looking to the mystical and the spiritual because I know for myself,… I knew I was in the presence of some powers that was so strong that it made me not only to transform, but to look at life from a totally different point of view.  It wasn’t what I had that was interesting, it was what I could do, how I could help, how I could bring something different that was important.”
