Join Us as We Celebrate the Worldwide Release of The World Wisdom Bible June 17, 2017
An antidote to religious ignorance, arrogance, and parochialism, The World Wisdom Bible is a unique anthology of teachings drawn from humanity’s greatest saints, sages, and mystics, exploring the essential themes of spirituality.
The World Wisdom Bible is more than a collection of wise words; it is the song of the human heart. It is the cry of the despairing for solace and of the outraged for justice. It is a joyful noise, a fertile silence, a prophetic call, a beautiful fever and a blessed remedy and the promise of hope for our troubled times. It is a gasp of holy awe. – Mirabai Starr

Please join us for this amazing, enriching, and inspiring weekend of study, discussion, and spiritual practice guided by the One River Foundation faculty.
