I can't believe it! Brother John Martin, superior of the ashram where I was in India, will be in Cleveland 5/12-5/18! I tell my husband, Tom, every morning that it seems like I've had this crazy dream that Brother Martin is coming to stay with us - and then I realize it's true!

Feel free to contact me about any of these events by email or cell 440 278 0065. Do not miss this opportunity to meet an amazing and compassionate soul. I spent three weeks at Shantivanam in 2013 and listened to Brother Martin's famous "Four O'Clock Talks" each day where he spoke on everything from levels of consciousness to the nature of evil. He is a Camaldoese Benedictine monk and a close disciple of the late Father Bede Griffiths, founder of Shantivanam Ashram and one of the leading thinkers in the development of a dialogue between Christians and Hindus. Following in Father Griffith's footprints, Brother Martin is also deeply involved in the inter-religious studies between Hinduism and Christianity. His vision goes beyond religious boundaries and focuses on the dignity of human beings who can transcend religious labels and discover unity with God, creation and with all of humanity. His vision breaks down barriers and sees one God and one creation. He is the author of several books and lecturers annually in Europe. We are so delighted to have him here in 2016! Brother Martin will also be in Philadelphia, New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles! Thank you to my dear friend and fellow India pilgrim Iris Eisenlohr for organizing Brother Martin's trip!
