Three paragons of inter-spirituality, Mirabai Starr, Rabbi Rami Shapiro and Barbara Brown Taylor, host a weekend of lectures, aesthetics and wild surrender joined by cellist Eugene Friesen and Irish musicians Owen & Moley Ó Súilleabháin.

Each February, visitors from as many as thirty-three states and throughout the Americas gather for a weekend of soul tending with artists and theologians on the campus of Rollins College. This year, audiences will revel in the presence of Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of more than thirty books on spirituality and recovery, and Mirabai Starr whose lyrical work translating mystics and goddesses is electrifying audiences on a current national tour. Together, Mirabai and Rami will welcome the return of beloved author and storyteller, Barbara Brown Taylor.

The symposium wouldn’t be complete without art. The Beauty We Love offers our planet a healing prayer-in-concert from cellist Eugene Friesen as the opening convocation. Together, with a command appearance by Owen and Moley, the weekend assures participants of an experience immersed in melody.

Participate in all three days for $220. Additionally, attend Thursday evening’s opening reception at the home of Rollins College President Grant Cornwell for $30 and join Saturday’s group luncheon in the beautiful new Rice Family Pavilion at Rollins for $20.
