Abrahamic Family Reunion
Although the driving goal of this conference series is to bring together Jews, Christians, and Muslims to discover their common bond in Abraham, a number of participants emphasized the need for intra-faith dialogue.Â The hardest work is often within each religion not across the religions.Â For example, Kamal Abu Shamsieh shared that getting his own Muslim brothers and sisters to make positive changes is a harder task than participating in these Esalen dialogues, where the other members are ready and willing to be tolerant and open-minded.Â Likewise, Nazir Khaja affirmed that while it is vital that Muslims dialogue with Jews and Christians, it will ultimately not work unless Muslim leaders turn to their own communities and encourage them to move toward more progressive values and visions.Â Others in the conference, such as Yahya Michot and Mary Haddad, agreed that each religion needs to embrace its own inner transformation in conjunction with outer dialogue.
