An Alternative Orthodoxy
Saturday 18th July , 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Contemplative Study Days based on the teachings of Fr. Richard Rohr OFM
Join Rev Canon Olive Stevens and Rev Sian Yates for a day of contemplative teachings, practices and reflections using video footage from the CONSPIRE conference 2020 at the Centre for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico. The talks were given by Richard Rohr, Barbara Holmes, Brian McLaren, James Finley, and Cynthia Bourgeault.
A capstone experience uniting Richard Rohr’s seven themes of alternative orthodoxy to create a gateway into practical and authentic contemplation—a way of life rooted in radical openness to God’s loving presence.
From this vulnerable place, things like adversity, disruption, and suffering become sources of transformation, greater love, and connection.
We cannot think ourselves into a new way of living;
rather, we must live ourselves into a new way of thinking.
If you are doubting, welcome!
If you are hurting, welcome!
If you are angry at injustice, welcome!
If you are afraid but longing to let go, welcome!
If you feel far from home, welcome!
The Beloved will meet you here.
