2022 Mystics Summit
Program & Replays
His Sacred Humanness, The Venerable Reverend Dr. Heiwa no Bushi explores the subject of honesty. The goal of developing a staunch understanding of ourselves may propel us into confusion and doubt, yet the goal of truth is to be found in the chaos of it all. Together, we will talk about being human from a cellular and psychological plane, which we suppose is holy.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- What it means to be the victim of the post-traumatic stress disorder of your parents, and what does that look like regarding faith
- Is spiritual materialism the poison of compassion creating an ill spiritual/religious life?
- Should we let the phenomena of the chaos play out?

The Venerable Rev. Dr. Heiwa no Bushi is a living, breathing, primordially wise human being whose teachings have captivated the religious, interfaith, and inter-religious communities across the globe.

His ability to deliver a devastating logic into the age-old war between the conversations of good and bad, right and wrong, God and the Devil is his spiritual superpower. His spiritual practice community of monks and lay practitioners now numbersover 117,000 individuals throughout the world and has been increasing since 2018 when he delivered a devastatingly insightful interview with The Liturgists Podcast. He has been interviewed by countless media personalities including Fred Bahnson of Harper's Magazine. He is a farmer, author, mystic, teacher, martial artist, and meditator.
