Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Spirit in Practice: An Adult Program for Developing A Regular Practice of the Spirit


The author expresses his gratitude to Zen Mountain Monastery in Mount Tremper, New York, for its "Eight Gates" model upon which this workshop's central organizing principle is based.

The developmental editor wishes to thank Adrianne Ross for her tireless project coordination for the Spirit in Practice program and other Tapestry of Faith programs for adults, Margy Levine Young and Adrianne Ross for the hard work and technological know-how that has brought the Spirit in Practice program to the internet, Kathy Carter for detailed and thoughtful manuscript editing, and Judith Frediani for carrying forward the vision of the Tapestry of Faith series. Gratitude also to Tapestry of Faith consultant Marion G. Mason, Ph.D., for her valuable suggestions pertaining to adults’ spiritual development, and sincere thanks to Rev. William “Scotty” McLennan for permission to use “A Faith Stage Checklist” from his book Finding Your Religion: When the Faith You Grew Up With Has Lost its Meaning (Harper San Francisco, 1999).
