This week we fulfill a dream…the dream of all dreams. We talk to THE Father Richard Rohr! Our spiritual guide, hero, and one man quote machine took time out of his busy schedule to drop some serious knowledge on us. We discuss the two halves of life, the spiritual journey, and the Cosmic Christ. You’re really going to enjoy this one! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!
Fr. Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism and the Perennial Tradition. 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 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.
