Hybrid: Coming Alive with Howard Thurman

With Julian Cleary OSB and Laura Swan, OSB

January 13, 2024

Mystic Howard Thurman was a student of Gandhi and spiritual mentor to Martin Luther King along with other leaders in the civil rights movement. Join us for a contemplative exploration of the prophetic teachings of Thurman whose compassionate voice is needed more than ever. Some lecture content, interactive sharing, and contemplative time will be the springboard into a greater understanding of the fruitful quiet within which Thurman strove for deep peace and unity. The questions Thurman asked of his students:  “Who are you, really, and Who do you want to be?:” questions we pose with this glimpse of Thurman’s life and legacy.
