Description

Can we 21st century pioneers match the challenge that our wanderings in a vast spiritual desert will bring us to encounter, still never giving up our hope, and yet continually find our courage renewed? Can we rediscover trust in our now more divided lands, as some have managed to do in their past trials and tribulations? In 2001: A Spiritual Odyssey Frederick Sontag argues that we cannot understand the causes and the directions of our 21st century spiritual odyssey without seeing the forces which attract and drive the human spirit. Our goal? To see what new-born novelties may be moving us to our 2001 spiritual odyssey, and what attractions and distractions may be as old to us as our evolution's history.
