The Multi-Faith Collaborative

at Open Spirit

The Multi-Faith Collaborative brings people from diverse spiritual and cultural traditions together to build bridges of understanding, appreciation, and friendship.
 
Our offerings have included:
  • Celebrations of holidays from our different faith traditions, including periodic Shabbat dinners, Passover Seders, an annual Iftar (the Muslim fast-breaking during the season of Ramadan) and more. The celebrations are open to people of all faiths and people who do not identify with a faith tradition, and are opportunities to learn and build community in a joyous setting.
  • A monthly interfaith book club and periodic special book discussions.
  • Multi-faith prayer, meditation and music gatherings in times of community crisis.
  • Comparative scripture studies on themes such as loving kindness and creation.
  • A monthly gathering called "Common Ground," which facilitates dialogue between people who identify with a faith tradition and those who identify as secular humanists, agnostics or atheists.
  • A "Spiritual and Healing" panel discussion series, reflecting on healing in different  spiritual traditions. 
Our special programs include:
