Education in Unitive Spirituality
WHAT IS BESHARA?
Beshara is a name for…
- the perspective that there is only one unlimited existence, expressing itself infinitely as a gift of love.
- the realization that self-knowledge from such a unifying point of view results in an understanding of the whole, by the whole.
- the wisdom at the heart of all the great spiritual and religious traditions.
