In our culture, the “good life” means getting more. This series of retreat talks challenges listeners to subtract--to release whatever hinders us from siding with the cosmic Christ, whether that be in our inner world or our outer world. Father Rohr offers a daring vision which calls us to surrender, to liberation, to making room for real freedom.

Very good recording.
The talk captivated me during the first session, and continued to hold my attention.
Richard has way helping you understand our mission and how to get there.
Bless his heart for trying but Mr. Rohr is too blind to his own narrow world, too confused by economics, too presumptive of other people's inner worlds and incredibly arrogant and distorted by his own Catholic lens. Mr. Rohr touches on some bits of truth but they are so tainted by his own lack of experience. Perhaps the Catholic priests should get married and have children, work and live outside of their castles in order to make a living so that they could get down off their high horse and actually have some practical understanding of what it means to find that still, quiet place inside even amidst the madness of the world.
If you would like a fantastic book on Christian Mysticism (which is what Richard Rohr is attempting to teach here even if he doesn't know it) listen to "Resurrecting Jesus, Embodying the Spirit of a Revolutionary Mystic" by Adyashanti. He has a much better understanding of the mystery—of Jesus—and his book is not political.
