Living School Alumni Gathering
All Living School alumni are invited to attend the Alumni Gathering, a special all-day event taking place on September 23, the day before the start of CONSPIRE.
Presented by the Center for Action and Contemplation
Friday, Sept. 24 – Sunday, Sept. 26
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Come reunite in person with your cohort and connect with a like-minded community of pilgrims on the Journey together, working to meet need and suffering at every turn with vulnerability and contemplative action.
Our deepest hope for the Living School is that students will emerge ready to live out their own soul task at home, in their places of work, and in all of their relationships. We hope that… they can further develop their own spirits of collaboration, compassion and joy, and engage themselves more deeply in social action for our suffering world. —Richard Rohr (2013)
Hear from all five members of the Living School’s faculty—Cynthia Bourgeault, James Finley, Barbara Holmes, Brian McLaren, and Richard Rohr—about life after sending. Listen to stories from fellow alumni about the challenges and triumphs they faced living out sacred soul tasks, building support networks, and continuing the work of personal transformation.
There will also be updates from Center for Action and Contemplation staff on the evolution of the Living School and our increasing role in the greater Christian contemplative movement.
We know how challenging it can be to take your Living School experience out into the world. Come discover your place in the emerging contemplative community of people committed to the intentional work of personal transformation, embodied practice, and engaged living.
