Join Cynthia and other brilliant teachers for an innovative online conference committed to the infinite potential of divine energy pervading cosmos, ecology, and culture—an overabundance of creative love within, capable of saving ourselves and our planet from our many 21st century challenges.
Cynthia’s plenary lecture is entitled “Lessons from Teilhard in a Time of Pandemic.”
If we really paid attention to the Teilhardian roadmap—ALL of it—we would be able to find our collective bearings in a much more creative and courageous way. This talk will build on five stipulations, foundational to Teilhardian metaphysics, that paint a radically different and more hopeful (yet more demanding) understanding of our current planetary crisis: Keeping Deep Time; Surrendering to the Whole; Trusting Interdependence; Committing to the Biosphere; and Contemplating the Christic Epicenter.
Our only way forward unfolds from Teilhard’s germinal vision that evolution, seen over the long arc as an irreversible “rise in consciousness,” is supremely under the reins of Christ, drawing us collectively toward the Omega Point. We will explore these five Teilhardian assertions, draw out their implications for our present situation, then explore the final point together in a collective practice of Centering Prayer.
