Beyond Big Religion: Perennial Wisdom and the Future of Spirituality

Broadcast on August 16, 2022
With Rabbi Rami Shapiro
Hosted by Carmen Acevedo Butcher, PhD

Big Religion — organized religion focused on patriarchy, power, and control — is at the core of civilization's dark night confronting humanity. In this conversation, Rabbi Rami Shapiro will explore an ancient and re-emerging alternative — the fourfold truth of Perennial Wisdom at the mystic heart of almost all religions, and key to the future thriving of both people and planet. Rabbi Rami's shared wisdom helps us embody the compassion of the Divine Mother and enter the dark night lovingly.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The danger of Big Religion
  • The divine feminine energy and the promise of Perennial Wisdom
  • Simple practices for awakening to the nondual Deity of which we are all a part
