The Spiritual Quest
of the Journalist

Christopher Schwartz

Christopher Schwartz is an American researcher and journalist. He is currently conducting doctoral research at KU Leuven’s Institute of Philosophy, while instructing at the American University of Central Asia in Kyrgyzstan, where he also works as a journalist. A member of the Bahá’í Faith, one of his intellectual interests is understanding  Bahá’u’lláh’s conception of journalism as “the mirror of the world”.

  Developing discernment by processing our biography
Deborah Ravetz

Deborah Ravetz is an artist, philosopher and author. Using John Keats ideas on negative  capability and Joseph Beuys’ enlarged form of art, Social Sculpture, Deborah will explore the place of transformation that emerges when we dare to embrace doubt and anxiety.  These important and valid parts of our experience can lead to wisdom and discernment and to the seat of joy.
