Andrew Harvey, founder and director of the Institute of Sacred Activism, has walked Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, and Sufi mystical paths and engaged in deep study in Asia and Europe with accomplished spiritual teachers. He has taught at Oxford University, Cornell University, the California Institute of Integral Studies, and elsewhere. He is the author of more than 30 books, including The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism; Radical Passion: Sacred Love and Wisdom in Action; and Journey to Ladakh. He also co-edited Sogyal Rinpoche’s The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. His most recent books are Return to Joy, coauthored with Carolyn Baker, and Diamond Cutters, an anthology of visionary poetry, co-edited with Jay Ramsey.
Join Andrew, one of the leading proponents of sacred activism in our time, to discover Jesus as an ultimate mystic and revolutionary, radiating the transfiguring power of love and justice.
Jesus lived in a dark time, in a political world that worshipped money and power. His authentic message, if heard today, would burn down the churches and overturn the economic and political elites. This is the real Jesus, says Andrew: a supreme evolutionary pioneer and embodiment of divine humanity.
During this powerful weekend, you’ll explore five essential practices drawn from the great Christian mystics and other traditions, relating the work and teachings of Jesus directly to sacred activism, which is the revolution of love in action. Concentrating on the Gospel of Thomas, you’ll learn how it contains the map for the true second coming — the birth of Jesus’ spiritual message in millions of human beings. You’ll leave with a radical new vision of the Jesus force, tools you can use to connect with it, and a renewed sense of commitment to birthing a truly sacred culture by enacting divine love and justice in the world.
