The purpose of the retreats created by Dialogues For The World is to bring about a living spiritual state of mind in every human being, a living state that is not based on images, ideas, patterns of thoughts or emotions, or any concrete expression from them. We are proposing that what can be called spiritual is a living state, and cannot be manipulated by any simple or elaborated thought or emotion. On the contrary, the human capacities that allow us to think and feel have turned into a source of pain and deception, and need to be fully understood for any living state to be meaningful. We further propose that creative dialogues are opportunities for us to break these patterns, and release thinking and emotions and feelings from memory, habits and the false sense of who we are. As shown in this lovely photo from the Mission in Santa Barbara, a picture can give us a very limited sense of existence in which the brain has found survival, security. But this security is deceptive, and its activity generates profound conflicts, human divisions and pain.
