Exploring the Spiritual Will: From Its Origins to Our Own
In this 2-hour virtual workshop, we will take a deeper dive into the religious and spiritual contexts with stories from interfaith panelists. We will also do some of our own writing and sharing, connecting our personal values and stories and imagining how we might want to pass them on.
This event is a follow-up to our first Spiritual Will-Writing workshop, organized with NAVEL's Queering Death assembly. This workshop is designed to welcome all people – whether you attended last time or are joining us for the first time.
Sunday, June 14, 4-6pm PDT
This workshop is sponsored by Abrahamic House – a multi-faith co-living, co-learning, and co-creating space based in Los Angeles. The mission of the Abrahamic House is to challenge and transform assumptions, prejudices, and inequities, then inspire and mobilize others to do the same. Abrahamic House serves as a personal and professional home to Muslim, Jewish, Christian and Baha’i emerging leaders. The four fellows design and facilitate monthly engagement programs and events together.
