The Experifaith model is based on experiential elements found in all religions and can be used to organize events at churches, spiritual centers, mosques, yoga studios, temples, homes, synagogues, meditation retreats, or anywhere else for that matter.
When you use the Experifaith portrait as a starting point for dialogue in intrafaith (within religion) settings, you will unveil new aspects and open unexpected avenues. Whether you start with your family, your friends at church, your yoga group, your prayer group at temple, your meditation circle, or other people that are already close to you, you will be amazed at the quality of conversation that results from using the model.
When you share the same belief system but belong to different sects it can be nice to take a break from debating theological differences and come together to talk about shared experiences. Whether the discussion is between Sunni and Shia, Catholic and Protestant, Orthodox and Progressive, Theravada and Mahayana, or other differing denominations, Experifaith allows participants to put aside ideological differences and focus on experiential similarities.
Imagine two hikers meeting. One has hiked extensively in Switzerland, the other has traversed all over the Rocky Mountains. The terrains are different but they share many similar experiences. Experifaith facilitates a similar process for spiritual seekers and believers who are separated by ideology. The acts of prayer, meditation and ritual may result in similar experiences even though theological landscapes are different. The goal is deeper understanding and harmony, not unity of belief.
2. Online Facilitation We will provide you with a facilitator to lead the process on a digital platform. (Skype, Google Hangouts, Zoom, etc.)
3. In Person Facilitation We will facilitate an onsite 120 minute process. Only available in Central Texas (for now).
With a belief in energy exchange while also giving the greatest number of people access to important ideas, Gudjon Bergmann, the creator of Experifaith, runs both programs and dialogue facilitation on a donation basis. This means that you can book an event (in-person or online) without worrying about money.
If you are interested in getting a facilitator to supervise the dialogue process, please contact us.
