TreesSilence in the City & Things Hidden: Scripture as Spirituality

Lecture CD: $10

Workshop CD: $30

Most of the world lives in cities that have become noisy, congested and stressful. Yet, somehow we have to live "in the world and yet not of the world." In the Friday lecture, Fr. Rohr leads us through lecture and guided meditation to integrate our very active lives with that inner core which is "hidden with Christ in God."

In the Saturday workshop, Fr. Richard Rohr shares some of the most exciting themes of the Bible, “things hidden” as Jesus said “since the foundation of the world.” With presentations and discussion, Fr. Rohr hopes to offer you the gift of insight into how a people gradually came to believe for themselves and know for themselves, with immense inner authority, the reality of God through Scripture. Learn a method for reading Scripture that puts the heart and the head together. Discover how a theme unfolds inside the entire Bible, creating a spirituality that is grounded, traditional, and yet frequently “counter-intuitive” in its mature form. See how the text, in its entirety, mirrors our own development of spiritual consciousness, with all stages revealed: getting it, losing it, resisting it, loving it, and even opposing the Mystery of God.
