On Stepping Back

CAC Founder Richard Rohr and CAC Executive Director Michael Poffenberger discuss Richard’s transition

Father Richard Rohr founded the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in October of 1987. Envisioning a “school for prophets” at the intersection of praxis and prayer, he created the CAC to be an educational nonprofit that introduces spiritual seekers to the Christian contemplative path of transformation. Since then, his vision, teachings, and partnerships have propelled CAC programs and inspired a movement for contemplative spiritual renewal. 

However, at this stage in his life, Richard’s desire is to create space for the rest of us to step in and carry his work forward into the future. For several years, he has been engaged with CAC leadership in a gradual process of stepping back from active duties.  

In this video, CAC Founder Richard Rohr and CAC Executive Director Michael Poffenberger talk about the ongoing transition and living our mission of action and contemplation forward into the future. 

Watch the entire video series on our YouTube channel. 

The Center for Action and Contemplation, its Core Faculty, and Board of Directors invite you to accompany us on this journey of transformation as we do the challenging work of reclaiming our founder’s vision for action and contemplation in a time of global change and contemplative renewal. 

Returning to the Center will be an opportunity to reflect together with our community on our discoveries and growing pains as an institution on the path of praxis and prayer, action and contemplation. You will find the latest posts on our website  and in the News from New Mexico, the CAC’s monthly newsletter.
