About Us

The question for us is always "how can we turn information into transformation?" How can we use the sacred texts, tradition, and experience to lead people into new places with God, with life, with themselves? — Richard Rohr

The Center for Action and Contemplation seeks to empower individuals to live out their sacred soul tasks in service to the world through educational programs and resources:

Conspire Events: A seven-year series of gatherings in New Mexico.
Online Education: Self-paced, online courses, including audio, video, and discussion.
Living School: Two-year program, combining onsite and online learning.
Webcasts: Live teachings from Fr. Richard streamed online, around the world.
CAC Bookstore: A comprehensive selection of Fr. Richard's books and recordings.
Richard Rohr's Daily Meditations: Free daily studies sent by e-mail to over 115,000 individuals every day.

Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) is the home of the Living School for Action and Contemplation. The CAC's administrative offices and Bookstore have served people internationally for over 25 years, supporting the world-renowned ecumenical ministry of Richard Rohr, OFM. As founder of the CAC and Academic Dean of the Living School, Fr. Richard's teachings form the basis of the organization's vision and on-going work.

The CAC is dedicated to facilitating a universal awakening by providing educational materials, events, and curriculum that bear witness to the Christian tradition of contemplative practice and compassionate action.
