Integral Church: A Handbook for New Spiritual Communities (2018)
Integral Church: A Handbook for New Spiritual Communities is a collection of prayers, meditations, songs and other tools for transformation from many of the world’s religions. This new revised edition for 2018 includes a history of Integral Spirituality, new essays, the Integral Church Facilitator’s Guide and an expanded appendix featuring wedding ceremonies (religious, non-religious and interfaith), memorial services, fatherhood and motherhood ceremonies, and other seasonal and life cycle rituals (including the Cosmic Dance). This handbook is perfect for clergy, healers, therapists, interfaith ministers, as well as those interested in developing their own spiritual practice or starting their own home church, study group or spiritual community using integral frameworks.
Praise for Integral Church: An Interfaith Handbook of Ceremonies and Rituals
“A pioneering document. It will go down in history as perhaps one of the first statements of this form of evolutionary spirituality. Joran is an excellent scholar and minister. The handbook is very well done and should be a manual for all of us.”
– Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution
“Joran Slane Oppelt’s Integral Church: A Handbook for New Spiritual Communities is one of the most important books regarding spirituality yet written in the 21st-century. Co-authored with other members of an emergent spiritual community, it is one of the first books to suggest a new coherent social structure for harnessing the power of spiritual evolution. Given the complexity and severity of the challenges faced by all species in an interconnected globe … it is truly a worthwhile pioneering effort at creating communities of faith and dialogue that can be a part of an emergent Global-Mind.”
– Joe Perez, author Soulfully Gay
Order of the Sacred Earth with Matthew Fox, Skylar Wilson and Jennifer Listug (2018)
Joran Oppelt’s essay, “The Case for a New Mythology” has been included in Rev. Dr. Matthew Fox’s new book, Order of the Sacred Earth. Matthew Fox, Skylar Wilson and Jennifer Listug present a challenge and an opportunity in the vision launched in this modest book. That vision is about creating an Order of the Sacred Earth. Other essay contributors to the book and its vision include Mirabai Starr, Brian Thomas Swimme, Adam Bucko, and David Korten. Out now from Monkfish Book Publishing Company.
“The creation of the Order of the Sacred Earth is a magnificent step forward for humanity. What we need now are sacred activists willing to come together and live conscious sacred lives to preserve the earth and humanity. I am honored to celebrate and join this great adventure.” – Andrew Harvey
