9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Much of our life flows together and disappears in memory. There are some events, however, where we acknowledge something important is occurring – a baby is born, a child matures, a couple marry, a life is completed. For thousands of years, the great spiritual traditions have created rituals to honor these passages. On this day leaders of different traditions will share the important life stage rituals they observe, and together we will take time to reflect on what these transitions mean for us.
Steve Jacobsen, Co-Director at La Casa de Maria, will moderate presentations by a representative of the Islamic Society of Santa Barbara; Cantor Mark Childs, Congregation B’nai B’rith; Professor Shinder Thandi, Center for Sikh and Punjab Studies, UCSB; and Father Larry Gosselin, Santa Barbara Mission.
Bookings are closed for this event.
