Howard Thurman and The Habit of Stillness

Readers of Howard Washington Thurman note predominant themes consistent in his writings, namely mysticism and social justice.  In describing mysticism, Thurman notes 'stillness' as a necessity.  Dean Steele will focus upon Thurman's conception of the habit of stillness as a vital component of spiritual practice and as a sanction for resistance against injustice.  After her talk, Dean Steele will read excerpts from Thurman's Meditations of the Heart and invite participants to quiet meditation.
