CESNUR 2006 Conference on New Religions
CESNUR 2006 Conference on New ReligionsHello friends, I have submitted a paper to the CESNUR 2006 Conference on New Religions, which will be held in San Diego, CA., July 13-16, 2006. The submitted paper is “The Witch Hunt Continues, the Oppression of the Ecstatic Contemplative in Contemporary U.S. American Culture.” The paper attempts to address the issues that are relevant to the ecstatic and charismatic contemplative. (please see the details of the conference and URLs below:
To attend this conference and deliver this paper I will require financial support. To acquire funding I plan to write a grant proposal and submit it to various funding sources. However, considering the track record of oppression of the ecstatic and charismatic contemplative in this culture, as well as in the three vehicles of Buddhism, it is rather unlikely the usual funding sources will support this venture.
If you believe the issues of the ecstatic and charismatic contemplative and ending the marginalizing of the ecstatic and charismatic contemplative, are important to you, then please consider making a contribution to the GWV today.
May we become peace,
(Jeffrey S, Brooks)

We thank you for co-operating in an exciting programme. We were able to include the banquet in the award-winning Prado Restaurant at Balboa Park, rated among the very best restaurants in Southern California, and keep it within a reasonable full package registration fee thanks to the generous support of the Region of Sicily, Italy. We trust that the field trip to the Yogananda and Point Loma facilites will also be interesting.
