Rabbi Rami Shapiro enjoyed a close relationship with Fr. Thomas Keating and was invited to participate, starting in 1984, in the Snowmass Interreligious Dialogue that was published in The Common Heart. What a blessing for all of us that Rami will share the “8 Points of Agreement” that emerged from those amazing conversations!
In addition -- Twelve-Step Spirituality is for everyone, because everyone suffers from the foundational addiction of humankind: playing God. In his presentation on “First Stop Playing God,” Rabbi Rami will use elements of the Twelve Steps as well as insights common to all mystical traditions to explore the notion of playing God and the liberating realization that God is playing us.
