Spiritual Ecologies and New Cosmologies Convergence

A friend from college, Jason Brown, planned a Spiritual Ecologies and New Cosmologies Convergence as part of his PhD studies at UBC (University of British Columbia). He invited me to share an LDS ("Latter-Day Saint"aka: Mormon) perspective during a panel discussion at their opening night Beginnings Storytelling event. There were 10 speakers sharing stories from their faith or ethnic background with the theme of "beginnings." 

The speakers were:
First Nations, Musqueam - Larry Dean
Hindu - Acharya Dwivedi
Buddhist - Master Shiu Fong
Jewish - Rabbi Joseph Saltoun
Christian - Jason M. Brown
Muslim - Dr. Nasir Zaidi
Sikh - Balwant Sanghera
LDS/Mormon - Tess Barlow (me!)
Cosmos - Dr. Benoite Pfeiffer
First Nations - (Not sure his name)

It was an interesting event. I enjoyed the night and my time preparing for it. Adam was great watching the boys during the presentation and panel discussion. We made it a family day excursion up to Vancouver, Canada and got lunch at Granville Island Market (kind of like Pike's Place Market in Seattle).
