Initiatives, Projects and Campaigns

  • The Bridging Science and Faith Project – a unique forum where prominent speakers with backgrounds in science, medicine, theology and philosophy explored the role of religion, faith and spirituality in health and wellbeing, as well as the relationship between the mind, body and soul.  This project is made possible through the generous support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation (JTF).
  • STOQ, a Cura Foundation is focused on understanding the impact of science on society, culture and faith.  STOQ works to inspire powerful conversations across all major religions, cultures, economies, and borders to build bridges between the systematic and social differences that divide us.
