We are living in an interesting time where religion is losing ground and yet people are discovering their desire for deeper meaning, significance, and relationships. The question of whether there is more to life, what lies beyond or perhaps deep within the cosmos, who and what God is or means, are among the questions that find their way into our conversations. Some answer this by turning to religion to find ready-made answers while others open to the deeper questions and still small voice enticing them to risk the security of faith and enter the urban desert as deep pilgrimage. These pilgrims are urban mystics venturing into the tapestry of their lives within the secular desert to pursue a deep relationship with our self, others, the cosmos, and God.
