Revolution of the Heart:
The Counter- Cultural Spirituality of Henri Nouwen
Friday, February 9 and Saturday, February 10
Cost $150
Cost for Students $24
Keynote Speakers:
Sue Mosteller, C. S. J. , John Dear, Robert Ellsberg, Shane Claiborne,
Gabrielle Earnshaw & Joe Abbey-Colborne

The call to freedom and peace resounds as a deep need in our divided culture and violent times. The legacy of Henri J.M. Nouwen, perhaps the most widely read author of Christian spirituality of the later part of the 20th century, offers a unique perspective into developing an embodied spirituality that is capable of responding to today’s divides with a powerfully peaceful heart. Originally from the Netherlands, he spent many years in North America, mostly as an academic teaching courses on spirituality. But it was his time in Latin America, and his exposure to the liberation theology of Gustavo Gutierrez, that transformed him most profoundly. His exposure to the political insecurity and economic disparity of the marginalized communities he encountered pushed his private contemplative experience into one that was rooted in an active and reflective faith. By following his example, this conference aims to offer the world fresh resources by which we can “dip deeply into the well of our own lives” to discern the ongoing liberating movements of God.
