About Spirit Garden
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
-Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Our world is rich with ways that we recognize and understand the Sacred across cultures and wisdom traditions. And the term, Interfaith, simply means that we are willing to enter into dialogue with one another, to learn about and from one another and the deep well of wisdom that each tradition offers. At Spirit Garden, we believe that as we share our faith traditions with one another, we learn and grow in our capacity to love and build bridges that connect and unite us. As the Dalai Lama shares about his Interfaith experiences:
“I have learned from these experiences that all the world’s traditions have similar potential to help us become better human beings.” (The Mystic Heart by Wayne Teasdale)
Spirit Garden is an interfaith ministry devoted to helping you nurture your spiritual life by sharing experiences and programs that draw from the world’s wisdom traditions. It is our delight to provide resources that make this wisdom relevant and applicable to your every day life. Here you can:
- Learn about modern and ancient mystics
- Learn prayer and meditation practices
- Experience ritual and ceremony to support your daily rhythms
- Connect with nature to nurture your soul
- Develop contemplative practices
The spiritual traditions are primarily about reality…an effort to penetrate the illusions of the external world and to name its underlying truth.
Spirit Garden was founded by Kathy Roy, a Spiritual Director and Interfaith Minister. Kathy has spent many years exploring Christian Contemplative Spirituality, Celtic Spirituality and Earth Based Traditions. Kathy has a deep appreciation for the wisdom inherent in all traditions. As a writer, speaker and teacher, Kathy has spent many years creating transformational education experiences that draw from these wisdom traditions.
