epth view of what "Interspirituality" may
become, the book melds interspirituality with the unfolding of globalization and
multi-culturalism worldwide, the integral and spiral dynamics views of process and
history, current studies of consciousness, brain/mind and quantum/string theory.... and a
host of other elements essential to our voyage to a "civilization based on the
Heart" (Bro. Wayne's words).

NEW ASSOCIATED COMMUNITIES
As of 2011, the Community of the Mystic Heart has also moved to share its wider community, vision and mission with groups of persons able to live in varying degrees of experimental interspiritual community. These communities, like CMH, are members of, and associated with each other through, the Order of Universal Interfaith (www.ouni.org). We welcome you to examine these communities at our Associated Communities page HERE.
CMH Leadership Circle cooperated with One Spirit Course on Brother Wayne's "Nine Elements of a Universal Spirituality".
This was a one-night-per-month for six months, Nov. 4-April 2011 course-- with supplemental discussion groups, conference calls and internet sharing. Members of the CMH Leadership Circle, and others, led these latter components.
Salons for Exploring Interspirituality
by Ellen Friedman, CMH Austin
Are you ready for meaningful
conversation about the nine elements of mature interspirituality? Have you recently taken vows into the Community of
the Mystic Heart or are considering taking the vows based on the nine elements?
Join us for an interspiritual
salon in your community. Salons are sacred containers for dialogue, reflection, and
inspiration. The salon process varies from community to community. In
The nine elements identified by Br. Wayne Teasdale in The Mystic Heart include: actual moral and ethical capacity, solidarity with all beings, deep nonviolence, humility, spiritual practice, mature self-knowledge, life of simplicity, selfless service and compassionate action and prophetic voice. Being both aspirational and the full-flowering of the spiritual life, the elements act as a guide to bring the rich meaning derived from diverse spiritual practices and ultimate experiences into the world through our actions.

Why we Changed Our Name: Although "The Universal Order of Sannyasa" was the name used by Brother Wayne throughout his writings, we found that use of the term "Sannyasa" in a non-traditional sense caused discomfort for some traditional Sannyasa and, further, the term was unfamiliar, or seemed too exclusive, to others in the unfolding international interspiritual dialogue
