We’re still compiling a list of workshops, so for now, just get excited about our plenary speakers:
Father 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, N.M. Father Richard’s teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy — practices of contemplation and lived kenosis (self-emptying), expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized.
Father Richard is author of many books and his newest book, The Divine Dance: The Trinity and Your Transformation is available for order now at thedivinedance.org.
