Final CONSPIRE Conference
May 15–17, 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!

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 self-emptying, expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized.

Fr. Richard is academic Dean of the Living School for Action and Contemplation.
