Welcome to the Universal Heart Network and the Universal Heart Network Book Club!

Writer Dr Stephanie Dowrick began the Universal Heart Network in 2000 as a way of sharing information, inspiration, and keeping in touch with readers in the pre-Facebook era. It allows her to reflect on the values Networkers share and affirm, and to write a newsletter to a wide circle of readers about ten times a year, sent by email. (No attachments.) In 2012 Stephanie launched – with writer Walter Mason – the Universal Heart Book Club as a way of bringing to your attention some worthwhile books, ideas, writers – giving you a chance to join in a global conversation about ideas that matter.

Information to Subscribe/unsubscribe or manage your subscription is provided here. All easy! All free!

Joining The Universal Heart Network, you will receive early and updated information about Stephanie Dowrick’s public talks and events, the monthly Interfaith services in Sydney (3rd Sundays, 3pm, 264 Pitt Street Uniting Church, Sydney), advance notice of new books – both print and audio – and inspirational comments.  You will also receive reminders of what’s new in the Universal Heart Book Club – with fine reviews and articles from leading writers. You can find PAST NEWSLETTERS under “Blog” on this website. Because of the way that websites unfold, it is impossible for us to post Newsletters in this section of the website without moving this vital “joining” information “down” and possibly out of sight.

Stephanie Dowrick says,
‘This is a modest Network with a delightfully far reach. It’s made up of people who care about the values that strengthen and connect us. It means so much to me and I continue to be deeply touched to meet Universal Heart Network members at my public events, knowing that I can also “meet” you regularly through these newsletters. “Joining” commits you only to thinking with other Universal Heart Networkers about values that matter and events that may support you.

Do take time also to visit the Bookclub where you can comment and participate, as you also can on my “Official Stephanie Dowrick” Facebook page.

Thank you so much for your interest in what visionary poet Rainer Maria Rilke called “the deepest things”. Meeting hearts as well as minds is needed more urgently than ever. As the world grows more crowded, and individuals become more isolated, we increasingly need communities – and to be active and participatory within them. ”
