Beliefs are not merely concepts in our mind, they actively shape our perception of reality, and even form that Reality.
We often have a literal conception of Jesus' return, but the spiritual-mystical realization infinitely outshines it.
We will be discussing how we may reinterpret the ideas of Mormonism (and Christianity) in the light of classic mysticism, interspirituality, modern science, psychology, and other progressive and constructive approaches.
