Are you yearning for practical, meaningful personal support? Please take time to enjoy this talk, given in the Tom Keneally Library at the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts in Sydney on 26 March 2014. Here, writer and spiritual leader Dr Stephanie Dowrick reflects on our needs for spiritual support especially at a time when religions fail many, or do not meet their deepest yearnings for consolation, compassion, inclusivity and meaning. Ours is an age of anxiety and disconnection for many: how can we meet that and relieve or heal it in our own lives and – vitally – in the lives of others? This deeply thoughtful talk is practical as well as inspirational. Stephanie Dowrick especially draws on two of her more recent books: Seeking the Sacred and also Heaven on Earth:Timeless Prayers of Wisdom and Love.
