This course is an introductory exploration of the deepest and most ecstatic aspects of the spiritual traditions of this planet (and beyond) from a shamanic and multidimensional perspective. In our research we will refer both to the best-known religions of humanity (Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Taoism) and to ancient or recent forms of alternative spirituality (shamanism, esotericism, Gnosticism, Sufism, A Course in Miracles, 12-steps, astrotheology, New Age, etc.), as well as to mystical, visionary or multidimensional experiences derived from parallel realities. The course is a wide-ranging interspiritual journey including various practices and profound reflections on the meaning of existence. This course is ideal for those who wish to research, restore, expand or heal their relationship with their deepest nature, or with God, or any other similar term with which they have the greatest spiritual resonance. The course is also aimed at discovering paths with which there is strong harmony, also healing unresolved prejudices or grievances with one’s cultural roots, or with forms of religiosity towards which resistance or aversion is felt.
Interspirituality is an approach that highlights and shares the gifts of each spiritual tradition to access an inner core of truth based on direct spiritual experience.
Interspirituality is essentially an agent of a universal mysticism and integral spirituality.
We often walk the interspiritual or intermystical path in an intuitive attempt to reach a more complete truth. That final integration, a deep convergence, is an integral spirituality. Bringing together all the great systems of spiritual wisdom, practice, insight, reflection, experience, and science provides a truly integral understanding of spirituality in its practical application in our lives, regardless of our tradition. (Brother Wayne Teasdale, The Mystic Heart)
The course consists of a series of online sessions that take place over the course of a year divided into four trimesters. Each quarter includes five sessions lasting one hour and forty-five minutes each. It is possible to enroll in the entire annual course or in single quarters. Each session is recorded and remains available for those who are unable to participate or need to listen to the session again. In between sessions, the course includes an online sharing and practice meeting with a partner or small group of participants. For each quarter a two-day residential seminar takes place at the Casale in Lunigiana, in which it is optional to participate (in some cases also online), where participation in at least one residential seminar during the year is recommended. A dedicated online forum is also operational for sharing experiences and asking questions. For those who intend to deepen, the course can be integrated upon request with participation in further individual or group training.
The starting date of the course will be communicated by January 2023 and will probably take place in February/March 2023. The requirement to take part in the course is to participate in one of the next online or residential seminars on the calendar, or alternatively in an individual session. The course takes place in Italian and English versions.
