Road to Joy

Interfaith Spiritual Gathering

About Us

Staying in regular contact with each other is essential.  I am committing to offer regular gatherings of Road to Joy in-person and on zoom on the second and fourth Sundays at 2 pm.  We’re meeting at the Bridgewater Barn in Vermont as well as on zoom.  My hope is that we might rotate around to various locations so more folks can connect in-person with this wonderful network of allies.  If You’d like to host a gathering of Road to Joy, let me know.

In addition to our worship gatherings on Sundays, I’m also hosting book and film discussions.  For films, we started with “Never Again Is Now,” which is available on CHD TV.  Details on the film series and discussion are in the Events column.  For books, we started with “The Psychology of Totalitarianism” by Mattias Desmet.   We're also exploring the "new story"we need to create and tell, using the work of Charles Eisenstein as a springboard.. 

Here are two additional books we may explore. Stay tuned as we formulate our plan.    "United States of Fear: How America Fell Victim to a Mass Delusional Psychosis." by Mark McDonald, MD. He has also written a second book, "Freedom from Fear: A 12 Step Guide to Personal and National Recovery." Still not too late to join in and invite a friend.  As we grow and connect, I hope we can host other groups, activities and gatherings. Maybe a hike when the weather warms up a bit?  

Let me leave You with these words from Rebbe Nachman of Breslov: “Finding joy is the hardest of all spiritual tasks. If the only way to make yourself happy is by doing something silly, do it.”  Looking forward to seeing You in-person and on zoom for some sane, silly sacred time together!

with great Love,


Freedom & Totalitarianism Discussion Group:

We know we don't want totalitarianism.  What do we want?"
The book group on, "The Psychology of Totalitarianism", has morphed into an ongoing discussion group.  Join us to explore our ideas and commitments in creating the free, beautiful, healthy, joyful,  just, compassionate world that we dream of.
We have started a great new book, "180 Degrees: Unlearn The Lies You've Been Taught To Believe." by Feargus O'Connor Greenwood.  The book is available electronically at 

Meeting on-line, Mondays at 11:30 am ET.
