Moving Forward Together

June 6th, 2022
Returning to the Center is a series of communal reflections on what we — the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) — are learning in our journey to renew our founding vision in a time of significant growth, change, and contemplative renewal. In my first post in this series, I spoke of the great need for

We Are More Together Than We Realize

May 24th, 2022
Over two years ago, our Visitor Center here at the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, NM, closed its doors. At the time, we hoped it was just for the week, which turned into a month, then a summer, and so on. Everyone has their own version of this same story. The movement from togetherness to

The Evolution of the CAC Podcast Network

May 23rd, 2022
How do you explain the Christ to a child?” This was the very first question we asked Richard Rohr on the first season of our flagship podcast, Another Name for Every Thing. Packed into that question were hours of reading, pondering, and Paul playing with his kids. This personally intense question was asked in such a

A Brief History and a Future Glimpse of ONEING

May 13th, 2022
A key publication of CAC Publishing is ONEING—CAC’s spiritual journal, which is read by CAC constituents in fifty-five countries. The journal includes numerous well-known authors and intentionally introduces new voices through its varied themes. While many contributors to the journal have historically been Fr.

Unveiling the Daily Meditations

May 6th, 2022
In September 2021, we “pulled back the veil” to show readers that Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations (or “DMs,” as we call them) are a team effort. As always, Fr. Richard provides the inspiration—through his fifty-one years of teaching ministry and the countless books, CDs, and MP3s that are its astonishing

The Man in the Maze

December 17th, 2021
Father Richard and a small group of co-founders began the work of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in a former barracks next to Holy Family Parish in Albuquerque, NM, in 1987. They hosted teach-ins for local activists and faith leaders – on topics like contemplation, liberation theology, and social

The Legacy and Impact of the CONSPIRE Conference Series

September 22nd, 2021
When the CONSPIRE conference series began in 2013, the finale seemed cast beyond the visible horizon. Yet conference by conference, CONSPIRE found its feet and together we walked the trails of the Alternative Orthodoxy towards that horizon. It was not a linear path. We could not always tell by sight or sound our exact

CAC’s Financial Philosophy

September 13th, 2021
Early last year, when we first started exploring a few key questions around how the CAC stewards its financial resources, no one could have anticipated that we’d be completing a comprehensive, board-approved financial philosophy by December. Our newly adopted philosophy, which captures Fr. Richard’s theological

CAC’s Financial Philosophy: “How you do anything is how you do everything.”

September 6th, 2021
When Richard Rohr founded the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in 1987, his vision was to provide spiritual grounding for a movement of contemplative activists and prophetic leaders—an “underground seminary” that would teach the path of praxis and prayer. Over the years, we grew from a mom-and-pop

Order, Disorder, Reorder: Embracing Disorder

September 2nd, 2021
When I was first approached about writing a piece informed by Richard’s framework, Order, Disorder, Reorder, I was both excited and perplexed. What had I demonstrated in my time at the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) that would indicate such familiarity with Disorder? Immediately, it became clear
