harvey andrew w scarfWednesday, March 27, 4 pm EST: This week, Mitchell takes a poetic breath and license with internationally-renowned author, teacher and founder of the Institute for Sacred Activism, Andrew Harvey. 

Andrew is Founder, Director of the  Institute of Sacred Activism, an international organization focused on inviting concerned people to take up the challenge of our harvey andrew kabir bookcontemporary global crises by becoming inspired, effective, and practical agents of institutional and systemic change, in order to create peace and sustainability. Sacred Activism is a transforming force of compassion-in-action that is born of a fusion of deep spiritual knowledge, courage, love, and passion, with wise radical action in the world. The large-scale practice of Sacred Activism can become an essential force for preserving and healing the planet and its inhabitants.

Andrew was born in south India in 1952, where he lived until he was nine years old. It is this early period that he credits with shaping his sense of the inner unity of all religions and providing him with a permanent and inspiring vision of a world infused with the sacred. He left India to attend private school in England and entered Oxford University in 1970 with a scholarship to study history. At the age of 21, he became the youngest person ever to be awarded a fellowship to All Soul’s College, England’s highest academic honor.

By 1977, Harvey had become disillusioned with life at Oxford and returned to his native India, where a series of mystical experiences initiated his spiritual journey. Over the next thirty years he plunged into different mystical traditions to learn their secrets and practices. In 1978 he met a succession of Indian saints and sages and began his long study and practice of Hinduism. In 1983, in Ladakh, he met the great Tibetan adept, Thuksey Rinpoche, and undertook with him the Mahayana Buddhist harvey andrew quote heartbreakBodhisattva vows. Andrew’s book about that experience, Journey in Ladakh, won the Christmas Humphries Award.

In 1984, Andrew Harvey began a life-long exploration and explication of Rumi and Sufi mysticism in Paris with a group of French Sufis and under the guidance of Eva De Vitray-Meyerovitch, the magnificent translator of Rumi into French. Andrew has written three books on that subject: The Way of PassionThe Celebration of Rumiand Perfume of the Desert, an anthology of Sufi mysticism. With Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, he founded the Sufi Conferences, which have played a prominent role in uniting Sufis of all persuasions during the past six years. He has close connections with great Sufi teachers in America, Africa, India and Pakistan, and a very clear, comprehensive grasp of the state of modern Sufism in both the west and the east.

In 1990, he collaborated with Sogyal Rinpoche and Patrick Gaffney in the writing of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. In 1992, he met Father Bede Griffiths in his ashram in south India near where Andrew had been born. It was this meeting that helped him synthesize the whole of his mystical explorations and reconcile eastern with western mysticism.

Andrew has been on A Better World TV speaking with Mitchell about Sacred Activism as well as a couple of times discussing and reading from his translations of the famous Sufi poet Rumi.  He has been a regular guest on A Better World Radio as well.

This Week’s A Better World Media
mjr in prn studio exclaiming
On this week’s A Better World Radio, Mitchell speaks with colleague and dear friend Andrew Harvey about his latest work, the translation of the famous Sufi poet, Kabir, who happened to have been an early spiritual influence on and in Mitchell.  On ABW Radio Andrew has discussed Global Warming, animal cruelty (and rights) and numerous other social and environmental injustices in our midst, and how through the purview of the Sacred, one can remain balanced in the face of turbulence.  Andrew is truly one of Mitchell’s favorites, and it’s a deep pleasure and honor to have him back.
On A Better World TV, Mitchell speaks with co-author of Megatrends, Patricia Aburdene.  Making capitalism and our business lives conscious, to behave around money and energy with heart and attention instead of from greed and acquisition is at this point in time nothing short of imperative.  But in fact, those who engage in social entrepreneurism Patricia tells us, are enjoying what we call “multiple bottom lines”, money yes, but also the joy of being in service to Others and Planet, a ‘pay-off’ beyond all others.
