From Spirituality to Activism: Healing a Broken World Part I (LDW)

We are launching an exciting series of conversations on the role of belief in the public sphere. Leading the discussion will be Dr. Omid Safi, a Muslim public intellectual deeply committed to the intertwined path of love and justice for all. A professor of Islamic Studies at Duke University, Omid specializes in contemporary Islamic thought and spirituality. He has emerged as one of America’s most important Muslim voices, and is rooted in a prophetic tradition of Dr. King as well as Islamic spirituality. Omid is the editor of Progressive Muslims: On Justice, Gender, and Pluralism in which he inaugurated a new understanding of Islam that is rooted in social justice, gender equality and pluralism. His Memories of Muhammad is an award-winning biography of the Prophet Muhammad. His most recent book is Radical Love: Teachings from the Islamic Mystical Tradition (published by Yale). Omid is also a columnist for On Being, and now has a podcast at Be Here Now Network.
