The Grenger Westberg Keynote Address: Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM
PRESENTING: Tracking the Perennial Tradition Creates an Alternative Orthodoxy
When we look at the history of spiritual care and healing, the same themes keep emerging across religions and cultures. They are issues of how to move from doctrinal belief into actual practice. One primary theological application method is the practice of cultivating a contemplative mind.
Fr. Richard is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher whose work is grounded in Christian mysticism, practices of contemplation and self-emptying, and compassion for the marginalized. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, where he also serves as academic dean of the Living School for Action and Contemplation. Fr. Richard is the author of many books, including the bestsellers Falling Upward, The Divine Dance, Breathing Under Water, and, most recently, The Universal Christ. His work has been featured on Oprah's SuperSoul Sunday, Krista Tippett's On Being, and in the New York Times.
