Howard Thurman Institute (HTI)
WEFA conducts seminars, workshops, and retreats on spirituality, ethical, and leadership through the lens of Howard Washington Thurman (1899-1981), a leading figure in twentieth-century American religious and cultural life. The dream of community, or “the search for common ground,” was the defining motif of Thurman’s life and thought. His vision of the kinship of all life, born out of the particularity of his struggles, propelled him into the mainstream as a distinctive interpreter of the individual’s role in working for an equitable and just democratic society.
HTI seminars and workshops are offered virtually and in person. Thurman believed that the future of democratic life hinged on the creation of what he called “apostles of sensitiveness, small groups of individuals, who would need to work from the ground up to ensure that America lived up to its political and spiritual potential.”
