Dancing at the Yurt: An Interfaith Spiritual Journey

Appearance Date: 11/6/2021

Writing the book began in 2012 when he met fascinating people in Bloomington, Indiana, at a Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center retreat. He writes about their spiritual journeys, and then includes many others of diverse faiths who have inspired him on a winding path of being Baptist, Catholic and Buddhist. The book boils down to a few simple themes: “unity, compassion, nonviolence; and loving life, our neighbors, and our small, beautiful ailing planet,” Pearl says. “There’s so much division and turmoil in our country and world. My highest hope is that the book, in some small way, can help in the healing process.”
