The theme of the conference is “Progressive Spirituality: New Directions” and the program will take participants through a broad spectrum of topics exploring what it means to be “spiritual” in contemporary times. Eco-theological aspects of spirituality, indigenous spirituality, and aspects of Muslim and Jewish spirituality will also be examined.
Eminent international writers, researchers and scholars Dr Diana Butler Bass and Professor Pamela Eisenbaum and well known Australian theologian Dr Val Webb will deliver major public addresses and they will also participate in other parts of the program. Rev Dr David Felten, Co-founder of Living the Questions and an acclaimed speaker at the third Common Dreams Conference in 2013, will also feature as will Fred Plumer of ProgressiveChristianity.org and Adrian Alker of the Progressive Christian Network (Britain).
