Richard has outdone himself with his new book--bringing together the many themes of his Franciscan world view! Brie Stoner is a delightful voice asking the hard questions for women in today's world. She was marvelous in the CAC's course on Mary Magdalene, and brings her thoughtful questions to this podcast. This podcast is a MUST for those drawn to pan-entheism. (sp.?)

Embody | Alternative Orthodoxy (Conclusion)
3270
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Brie Stoner and Paul Swanson, conclude the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy by reflecting on how these themes relate to the values of devotion, public virtue, and simplicity.   The final conversation of this season enters the tension of how one embodies these themes and values out in personal and communal ways. Join us as we seek ways to better understand how we can embody our beliefs, wrestle with our shortcomings, and play with the interrelatedness of the 7 themes with Richard’s broader work. There is a subtle striving throughout this conversation that resonates with the gifted opportunity for continued evolution for all of us in our unique contexts.     Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing     Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe

Goal | Alternative Orthodoxy (Theme 7)
4309
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Paul Swanson and Brie Stoner, continue the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy. The seventh theme of the Alternative Orthodoxy leads us to union:    Non-duality is the highest level of consciousness. Divine union not private perfection, is the goal of all healthy religion    This final theme holds the center of spiritual desire; Divine union. Join us as we share models of those who exemplify non-duality in their life, the nagging habits of pursuing private perfection, the fours splits that those in the first half of life need to overcome, and how prophetic action can flow from non-duality.    Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing     Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe  -- Embark on a spiritual journey through St. Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle with Jim and Mirabai Starr in their online course starting September 9th.

Process | Alternative Orthodoxy (Theme 6)
3970
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Brie Stoner and Paul Swanson, continue the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy. The sixth theme of the Alternative Orthodoxy introduces us to our primary teachers:   The path of descent is the path of transformation. Darkness, failure, relapse, death, and woundedness are our primary teachers, rather than ideas or doctrines.  This theme can be heavy to hold in ourselves and bearing witness in the experience of others. Join us as we share personal stories on the path of descent, appreciate the gifts of vulnerability and forgiveness, hold our mortality with a loving gaze, and work towards detaching from the storylines that dictate or bind our growth.   Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing    Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe

Transformation | Alternative Orthodoxy (Theme 5)
3935
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Paul Swanson and Brie Stoner, continue the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy. The fifth theme of the Alternative Orthodoxy opens the door to everyone:   The “separate self” is the major problem, not the shadow self which only takes deeper forms of disguise.  There is a subtleness to this theme that takes some sussing out. Join us as we share personal stories that exemplify our wrestling with this theme, distinguish between the ‘shadow self’ and the ‘separate self’, look at the ways that shames snakes its way into our lives, and ultimately how connection to the whole entices personhood.   Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing    Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe

Ecumenical | Alternative Orthodoxy (Theme 4)
3583
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Brie Stoner and Paul Swanson, continue the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy. The fourth theme of the Alternative Orthodoxy opens the door to everyone:   Everything belongs. No one needs to be punished, scapegoated, or excluded. We cannot directly fight or separate ourselves from evil or untruth. Darkness becomes apparent when exposed to the Light.  This tenet has been a hallmark of Richard’s teachings – everything belongs. Join us as we share personal stories that seek to put flesh on the bones of this theme, examine the tendency to scapegoat or exclude others, and seek to understand how this relates to Liberation Theology and prophetic action.  Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing    Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe

Frame | Alternative Orthodoxy (Theme 3)
4012
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Paul Swanson and Brie Stone, continue the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy. The third theme of the Alternative Orthodoxy reframes our perspective of reality:  For those who see deeply there is only One Reality. By reason of the Incarnation, there is no truthful distinction between sacred and profane.  The heart of this theme is about allowing what seems to be separate to become one; often through deep connective experiences of love and suffering. Join us as we share personal stories that embody this theme, discuss the importance (and often gaudy art) of the sacred heart, the sacramental depth of reality, and live a life of mystical incarnation in the here and now.   Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing    Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe

Foundation | Alternative Orthodoxy (Theme 2)
3323
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Brie Stoner and Paul Swanson, continue the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy. The second theme of the Alternative Orthodoxy is foundational for understanding the remaining themes:   If God is Trinity and Jesus is the face of God, then it is a benevolent universe. God is not someone to be afraid of, but is the Ground of being and on our side  This second theme lays the groundwork for relating to the shape of God within the Alternative Orthodoxy. Join us as we share personal stories that elucidate this theme, nuance the theological language, and seek understanding in how this fits within an evolutionary perspective.  Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing    Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe

Methodology | Alternative Orthodoxy (Theme 1)
3573
Richard Rohr, in conversation with Paul Swanson and Brie Stoner begin the journey through the 7 Themes of the Alternative Orthodoxy. The first theme of the Alternative Orthodoxy is the methodology that formed the remaining themes:  Scripture as validated by experience, and experience as validated by Tradition are good scales for one’s spiritual worldview  This foundational theme is the launchpad to whole of the Alternative Orthodoxy. Join us as we reflect on how we relate to scripture (even during the dry seasons), steadily learning to trust our experiences, listening to the multivocality of the Tradition, and the interplay between all three creates a unified field.  Visit cac.org/podcast to listen to the first 3 seasons of Another Name for Every Thing   Visit universalchrist.org to learn more about the core themes of Richard’s book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe
