GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY
Wahhabism and the World

Please join the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs at Georgetown University for a webinar entitled “Wahhabism and the World: A Conversation with Peter Mandaville” on Monday, March 28 at 9:30 am PDT.

For more than half a century, Saudi Arabia has poured billions of dollars into funding and sponsoring religious activities and Islamic causes around the world. The effect has been to propagate Wahhabism, the distinctively rigid and austere form of Islam associated with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's religious establishment. This webinar will explore the global impact on Islam through a conversation with Berkley Center Senior Research Fellow Peter Mandaville, editor of the newly published Oxford University Press volume “Wahhabism and the World: Understanding Saudi Arabia's Global Influence on Islam”.

Spirituality Series 2022: Steps 2 & 3: “We AGNOSTICS” A Choice & A Decision!
Joe Chisholm & Herb Kaighan, Spiritual Guide
Saturday, April 23.  10:00am to 1:00pm  Via Zoom (PST)
Herb K & Joe C will discuss their respective approaches: Traditional VS Non-Traditional and dialogue about their understanding and experience then open the workshop to participant questions. Herb K will unpack his understanding and experience with the Big Book from the “spiritual” perspective – helping participants clarify the practical meanings of: FAITH; CHOICE; DECISION. Joe C will share his approach from the “secular” viewpoint – addressing the % of people coming from or drawn toward agnosticism/atheism, modeling how to have an effective personal experience. From Joe C:Step Two and Three are a process for a freethinker like me--not an event. My unaided will was insufficient to sustain sobriety. What resources would suffice; where would I go or what/whom would I turn to for the care that I needed? None of these are original ideas, but I heard them at AA meetings and applied them to my life: a) the power of example, b) a Group of Drunks, c) a higher purpose. As ideas and practical tools, these three touchstones have all been instrumental throughout my AA recovery. I see in these principles the same practices and hope of Steps Two and Three that others find who "call it God-consciousness."  Herb K’s journey ~ 7 years in Claretian seminary, a graduate education in psychology, 40 years in human resources consulting, certification as a Spiritual Director, 37 years of active participation in a 12 Step Fellowship and the publication of 3 books on spiritual awakening. Joe C’s search for a secular daily reflection book for people in recovery came up empty, leading to his writing “Beyond Belief: Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life” (2013). Joe is a broadcaster & author, clean and sober since Disco music. His writing, research and reporting efforts have been directed towards music, finance, travel, mental health and addiction/recovery. Joe hosts a syndicated show on IndieCan Radio, devoted to the emerging music scene and Rebellion Dogs Radio, a contemporary look at 12-step life.
