God’s Great Story

Without the great stories that free us, we remain trapped in small cultural and private worlds. True transcendence frees us from the tyranny of I Am and the idolatry of We Are. —Richard Rohr

In this time of great unknowing, how do we expand our sense of self to include love, healing, and forgiveness—not just for ourselves and those like us, but for the entire world?

Join thousands of spiritual seekers from across the world for the final CONSPIRE conference, a global online gathering to experience God’s love, grace, and compassion.

A Global Community

Truth sees God, and wisdom contemplates God, and from these two comes a third, a holy and wonderful delight in God, who is love. ―Julian of Norwich

Discover your place among the emerging contemplative movement as six of the most prolific spiritual teachers of our time unite Richard Rohr’s seven themes of alternative orthodoxy in an exploration of the Great Story Line connecting us all in the One Great Life.

Experience the joyful depths of connectedness! Our teachers can only point to the Path; we are the ones who walk it—alongside all known and unknown mystics, saints, and everyday holy people who have come before us—together as One in the Great Story.

From out of the Past We Look to the Future

It is a time of planetary disruption and great change. Institutions, ideologies, and religious rituals feel increasingly out of sync with the experiences of everyday life. Yet even amid uncertainty and confusion, we see the Spirit at work, freeing the transformative wisdom of the Christian contemplative traditions from the storehouses of the past in loving service to the healing of our world.

We stand in the place where opposites come together, awaiting the birth of what is to come—a new genesis, one more beginning in a series of starts trailing backwards in time to the very first day; God’s generous rhythm of life, death, and resurrection moving in and through all things—the very breath and source of the cosmos itself.

Conspirare. Breathe with us.
