The University’s ongoing Interfaith Dialogue Dinner Series, “Common and Diverse Ground: Raising Consciousnesses by Acknowledging the ‘Hidden’ Things that Divide Us,” returns for fall 2019.

The 2019-20 series will open with an in-depth discussion on queer identities, spirituality and liberation titled, “Queer Spiritualities and Liberation.”

The guest co-facilitators for the evening’s dialogue will be Wildecy Fatima de Jury from the East Bay Meditation Center and Imani Gayle Gillison from the Brooklyn Zen Center, both in New York City. Both guest co-facilitators are Buddhist Dharma Teachers of Color and members of the LGBTQ+ communities. The dialogue is part of the University’s LGBTQ+ History Month programming in partnership with the LGBT Resource Center.

The gathering will include a shared meal, facilitated dialogue and two periods of mindful meditation (at the beginning and the end). American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and inclusive food will be provided. Requests for accommodations or food queries should be made in advance by contacting Bonnie Shoultz at bshoultz@syr.edu.
