Conspire Conference 2018: The Path of Descent is the Path of Transformation: Barbara Holmes

February 4, 11, 18

We need to deeply trust and allow both our own dyings and our own certain resurrections, just as Jesus did! This is the full pattern of transformation. If we trust both, we are indestructible. That is how Jesus ‘saves’ us from meaninglessness, cynicism, hatred, and violence—which is indeed death.

—Richard Rohr

How do we change and grow? How do we become our true selves, deeply connected with God and others? How do we learn to experience ourselves as interconnected so that we can truly love?

The mystics of many spiritual traditions teach the path of descent—surrender, generative self-emptying, dying before you die—as the way of transformation. If you were not able to journey to Albuquerque for the 6th annual Conspire Conference sponsored by the Center for Action and Contemplation, please join Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, Barbara Holmes, and Brian McLaren via video replay as they guide us in contemplative teachings, practices, reflection, and conversations.
