Prosocial Spirituality – From Me to We for the 21st Century

Hosted by Rev. Diane Berke, with special guests David Sloan Wilson, Jeff Genung,
and Kate Sheehan Roach

Inspired by the Nobel Prize-winning work of Dr. Elinor Ostrom and the interspiritual vision of Br. Wayne Teasdale, Prosocial Spirituality training fosters greater harmony, collaboration, and equity within and among groups, as well as cultivating spiritual depth and maturity in the individuals making up those groups.

Co-developed by Contemplative Life and Prosocial World, Prosocial Spirituality combines evolutionary science principles with universal spiritual practices to help groups of all sizes, formal and informal, develop the tools they need to thrive and contribute in these challenging times.

Join us for an evening of conversation and practice, and learn about an exciting free-of-charge training opportunity available to the One Spirit community this spring!
