Discover why many people now call Pope Francis the Catholic "Dalai Lama." In the amazing vision of "Laudato Si," his most controversial and stunning encyclical, we are invited to a fresh understanding of our place in the world as spiritual practitioners. In this presentation of the 131st Summer National Convention of the Theosophical Society in America, we will explore together a worldview that is truly comprehensive and challenges believers of any tradition to a new moral standard of unitive consciousness and ecological practice. We will let the spiritual genius of this Argentinian Jesuit and quintessential world citizen inspire us. 2017.
