Tribute to Wayne Teasdale at The Crossing, Austin Sept. 05Joan Borysenko
In September 2005, friends of Brother Wayne Teasdale gathered at the Crossing in Austin, Texas to pay tribute to this man that helped develop a new interfaith understanding. This conference was tribute to Wayne's work of the Way of the Mystic Heart: Finding the Common ground in the World's religions. The 3 days featured: Joan Borysenko, Kurt Johnson, Father Thomas Keating, Betty Sue Flowers and others. Brother Teasdale was a Fransican monk, who came to espouse what he termed interspirituality, a perspective that discovered in the world religions a degree of commonality which could be approached through mystical experience. The event was produced by Common Ground and headed by Gorakh Bill Hayashi.
