CONSPIRE Conference 2020
We know many people are looking forward to the final conference in our seven-year series exploring Richard’s themes of an alternative orthodoxy. The last CONSPIRE, focused on nondual consciousness, is the culmination of years of learning, connecting, and growing. We’ve reserved the Albuquerque Convention Center so we can host more people from our wider community (in the past, CONSPIRE has filled up quickly, with many unable to join in person). And we’re planning a deeply contemplative, embodied experience. Stay tuned for more information and registration in fall 2019!

October 2016
“Four ‘founders’ met in Snowmass, Colorado, to deepen our friendship and to gather and nurture a communion of Christian contemplatives. In order of age, Thomas Keating, Tilden Edwards, Richard Rohr, and Laurence Freeman are united in our commitment to renewing the practices of the Christian contemplative tradition as the center of all forms of Christian life. Our communion is open to collaboration with all streams of contemplative prayer and wisdom in response to the urgent social needs of our time, especially the need to recover the contemplative dimension of the Gospel. In the immediate future, we look forward to encouraging dialogue with and among young Christian contemplatives in particular.”

Richard Rohr teaches primarily within New Mexico and through online experiences such as CAC webcasts. We encourage you to explore the following options in addition to his speaking schedule above:

CONSPIRE Events (seven-year series of conferences held in New Mexico and webcast worldwide)
Online Education (self-paced, online courses, including audio, video, and discussion)
CAC Bookstore (a comprehensive selection of Fr. Richard’s books and recordings)
Living School (two-year program combining onsite and online learning)
Daily Meditations (free daily or weekly email reflections by Fr. Richard)

If you’re organizing an event at which you would like Fr. Richard to speak, consider hosting the event in New Mexico! Fr. Richard is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and rarely travels to teach. Exceptions may be made on occasion for venues within one day’s driving distance from Albuquerque. For more information, please visit Speaking Requests.
