Richard Rohr, Cynthia Bourgeault, and James Finley explore an
alternative orthodoxy, a different way of believing and practicing the
Christian faith. In conversation with each other and in response to
thoughtful questions, they point us to essential, yet often overlooked,
mystical and wisdom teachings. These insights are “alternative” simply
because they focus on themes that have been neglected by mainline
Christianity in recent times; yet they are as “orthodox” as many
more familiar beliefs. As Rohr says, “Honor the truth wherever you find
it. If it’s true, it’s true.”
These master teachers present an
alternative orthodoxy that reveals an evolutionary, inclusive, and
heart-centered spirituality. Rohr, Bourgeault, and Finley bring front
and center the seeming foolishness that has been relegated to the
periphery of our tradition for the last few centuries. They offer an
invitation to return to the original, grounding reality of the Gospels.
Can these different facets of belief bring hope and healing to our
lives, the Church, and the world? See for yourself.

and Contemplation, a two-year program combining online learning with
