Fr. Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism and the Perennial Tradition. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fr. Richard’s teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy—practices of contemplation and lived kenosis (self-emptying), expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized.

Fr. Richard is the author of numerous books, including Everything BelongsAdam’s ReturnThe Naked NowBreathing Under WaterFalling UpwardImmortal Diamondand Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi.

Fr. Richard is academic Dean of the Living School for Action and Contemplation. Drawing upon Christianity’s place within the Perennial Tradition, the mission of the Living School is to produce compassionate and powerfully learned individuals who will work for positive change in the world based on awareness of our common union with God and all beings.

On Friday, March 6, PVUMC will offer an Introductory Tour of the Types by AEA professional members Jaye Andres and Linda Frazee, 6-9 pm, and on Saturday, March 7, the church hosts “The Enneagram as a Conveyor Belt for Consciousness,” an all-day event that includes lunch on Saturday and free registration to the Friday event, if desired.


Join Father Richard Rohr as he shares how the Enneagram and its genius was “made to order” for us to move along our spiritual journeys. Father Rohr says, “Such a title allows me to talk about the contemplative (or non-dual) mind as the spiritual goal of growth, and how beautifully this tool moves us forward through the stages of consciousness.”
