Book reading: "Seasoned with Gratitude..." by Kathryn Lafond
Sep 17, 12:30 PM

"Seasoned with Gratitude: 250 Recipes and Blessings Celebrating the Greater Nourishment of Real Food" by Kathryn Lafond

SwG_cover_small.jpg
The message of this book is really about bringing gratitude to that which nourishes us and to awaken our awareness of the human place in the web of life. I also consider this to be a full-fledged cookbook for the ‘family of eaters’ – vegetarian, omnivore, etc. but so much more. I’ve tried to be inclusive with all the ways people might give thanks for their sustenance and truly there are a million ways.

A two hour program of silence, presentations, music, and conversation with Dr. Robert A. Jonas and Imam Jamal Rahman.

Wendell Berry has written, “Be joyful, though you have considered all the facts.” How is joy possible when our planet Earth is undergoing a massive extinction of species and looming climate catastrophe? Today we explore the ancient spiritual riches of the Sufi, Christian and Buddhist traditions, watering the seeds of new dialogues and new pathways of hope and action for Earth care. Through personal renewal and transformation, our lives can blossom into effective action in our families, communities and nation.
Join us as we un-earth the ancient wisdom of the Sufi, Christian and Buddhist traditions for Earth’s sake. Our day together will include silence, presentations, music, and whole group conversation. Free and open to the public. Free-will donations accepted.

Jamal Rahman is a popular speaker on Islam, Sufi spirituality, and interfaith relations. Along with the Interfaith Amigos, he has been featured in the New York Times, CBS News, BBC, and various NPR programs. Cofounder and Muslim Sufi minister at Seattle's Interfaith Community Sanctuary, and adjunct faculty-member at Seattle University, he is a former host of Interfaith Talk Radio. One of the three Interfaith Amigos (which include a Christian pastor and a rabbi), he travels nationally and internationally to present retreats and workshops.  http://www.jamalrahman.com/

Robert A. Jonas, Ed.D., is founder and director of The Empty Bell, a contemplative sanctuary in Northampton, MA, whose Website is a resource for contemplative Christians and for Buddhist-Christian dialogue. Trained as a psychotherapist and theologian, Dr. Jonas is a retreat leader, author, environmentalist and musician.

A past Board member of the Henri Nouwen Society, he is currently a member of the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies and of the Eckhart Society.
