This conference, which was sponsored by the Theosophical Society in America and held in Washington D.C., brings together voices from various spiritual traditions to creatively envision what a spiritualized globalization would look like in hopes of formulating a positive, shared "language of possibility" to facilitate further dialogue.

(Hinduism), Rabbi Ted Falcon, Ph.D. (Judaism), David Dakake (Islam), and Marilyn Youngbird (Native American), engage in discussions examining "Pluralism and Unity" and "Spiritual Ethics in Light of Globalism." Dr. John Algeo, Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Georgia, moderates the panel discussions, while Richard Smoley, editor of Quest Books, delivers the keynote address.
