Explore Louisville

Event has concluded.

Louisville is a dynamic, diverse, interfaith city committed to compassion—we are thrilled it is the host city for the 2015 Emerging Wisdom educational events!

Louisville was named a Compassionate City in 2011 and the model city for 2013 and 2014. Read more and watch this short video to learn what it means to be a Compassionate City.


The Galt House Hotel is situated on the bank of the Ohio River surrounded by parks, restaurants, and miles of walking trails. Click the waterfront map below to enlarge it and explore.


One key feature of the waterfront is the Lincoln Memorial. The Lincoln Memorial at Waterfront Park uses sculptural elements, artistic expression, and Abraham Lincoln’s own words to convey Lincoln’s lifelong ties to Kentucky and the state’s influence on his life.


As the home of Thomas Merton's epiphany, Louisville is dedicated to honoring his memory and interfaith spirituality. The video below was written and produced by the Drepung Gomang Institute, a stop on this year's pilgrimage day following the conference.
