Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., is a Franciscan priest and globally recognized ecumenical teacher, bearing witness to the awakening within Christian mysticism. He is the founding director of the Center for Action and Contemplation in his hometown of 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. Rohr is the author of more than 80 books, audio programs, and DVDs, including Everything Belongs, Adam’s Return, The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, and Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self.
