“Interspirituallity” is part of the “great intersubjective discussion” the world so desperately needs but to a great extent has never had. Science is a part of this discussion, as to how reality is experienced, observed, and described. ProSocial is especially part of this discussion as its goal is to promulgate prosocial behavior — and behavior is greatly effected by the stories we tell and accept. Br. Wayne Teasdale, who originated the word “interspirituality” is famous for saying “The only viable religion for the Third Millennium is spirituality itself” and by that he meant the deepest of subjective, and objective, experience that lead to prosocial behavior. Let’s explore the challenges, and assets, we share in navigating this directive. Dr. Kurt Johnson (http://www.lightonlight.us , www.unity.earth) has worked in professional science and comparative religion over 40 years.

Kurt has served on the faculty of New York’s Interfaith Seminary for 12 years and, for 25 years, was associated there with the American Museum of Natural History. He is host for the Convergence series on VoiceAmerica, publisher of three magazines: The Convergence, Light on Light, and Conscious Business and is a founder of the Light on Light Press.
