Love at the Heart of the Cosmos: Living in Relational Wholeness

December 6, 2019 - December 8, 2019

Commonwealth Chateau at SugarLoaf
Chestnut Hill College, Philadelphia, PA
December 6 – 8, 2019

Divine Love, according to Teilhard de Chardin, is the core energy of the cosmos. God’s love is unceasing, dynamic, and creative—pulsing in the heart of all things, driving us ever forward to newness. Our wondrous human gift of love means that the future of Earth is in our hands. But in these tumultuous times, where are we going?

We need a new story to guide our way. A rich awareness of what the Catholic-Hindu theologian Raimon Panikkar called “Cosmotheandric Solidarity”—the profound connection of God, cosmos, and humanity—can help place us in a universe of deepening consciousness and increasing complexity.

Our story requires contemplative practices to open our minds and hearts to divine love and new possibilities. And it must encourage us to transcend our differences and distances, adopting a planetary faith of the Earth that welcomes all God’s peoples, all God’s creatures, and all God’s planetary life, as one deeply connected spiritual community.

Join us as we seek to harness the energies of love and together renew our world.
