Prof. Karel Werner of SOAS, Religious studies Department, University of London, reviewed the history of Mysticism contrasting paths of doctrinal belief and ecstatic mystical union. His statement that ‘belief in doctrine was childish’ caused some discussion. He compared also the experience of interfaith dialogue and relationships today with the communities of mystics who have appeared throughout history. He added that the backlash against those who transcended their belief to enter an ecstatic, mystical oneness has also been a common historical theme.

This is one of our regular interfaith meetings where people can get together and learn about different Saints and their works. Starting with interfaith prayers from Christian, Hindu and Muslim, all the prayers had beautiful sounds. Particularly, Dr Krishna from the Hindu religion said prayers from the Qur’an which sounded so spiritual and enchanted. Report by Tomoko Harris (UPF Bristol).
