Father Richard Rohr presents- Another Name for Every Thing: The Universal Christ

October 12-14

Father Richard Rohr
Fr. Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fr. Richard's teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy—practices of contemplation and self-emptying, expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized.

Fr. Richard is the author of several books, including Everything Belongs, Adam's Return, The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, Immortal Diamond, and Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi. His newest book is The Divine Dance: The Trinity and Your Transformation (with Mike Morrell).

Fr. Richard is academic dean of the Living School for Action and Contemplation. Drawing upon Christianity's place within the Perennial Tradition, the mission of the Living School is to produce Compassionate and powerfully learned individuals who will work for positive change in the world based on awareness of our common union with God and all beings.

The retreat is based on Richards next book - which distinguishes Jesus from Christ while also keeping them one.
Come away and enjoy a weekend of theological reflection, dialogue,and time for contemplative prayer.
The pastoral and ecclesial implications are life changing for many people.
It will be the first time Richard has returned to the monastery in almost thirty years, and he is quite happy to do so.
