“5 Ways of Engaging the Heart: Experiences in Inter-Spiritual Practices”. The Diocese of New Westminster is a long-respected leader in Vancouver’s Interfaith community.  Our leadership continues, advances,  and even deepens with the Ecumenical & Multifaith Unit (EMU) and St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Vancouver partnering on “5 Ways of Engaging the Heart: Experiences in Inter-Spiritual Practices”. Open to the public, “5 Hearts” is unique in the history of Vancouver’s Interfaith community. With a focus on the heart, not the head, it invites participants to directly experience and sample spiritual practices from a selection of the world’s great faith traditions: Islam (Sufism), Judaism, Hinduism, First Nations and Christianity.   “5 Hearts” offers five separate Tuesday evenings within one integrated series in the welcoming and sacred surroundings of the Labyrinth Hall at St. Paul’s Anglican Church. This series is intentionally designed to be experientially-based, learning-centred, and cumulatively-approached to help move participants from their head in to the hearts in inter-spiritual practices. The intention is for participants to experience all five nights as a way to purposefully create a sense of community for mutual learning and spiritual growth.

The series launches on October 25th, 2016 with Islamic Sufi spiritual practices. The second evening on November 15th, 2016, focuses on Jewish spiritual practices. Third night, on January 17th, 2017, is with Hindu spiritual practices. Fourth evening on February 21st, 2017, is with First Nations spiritual practices. Final evening, on March 21st, 2017, brings the focus to Christian spiritual practices.
