Richard Rohr

Richard Rohr, O.F.M., is a Franciscan priest and founder of the New Jerusalem Community in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1971 and the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1986. He currently serves as director of the Center for Action and Contemplation. The Center serves a dual purpose: it is a radical voice for peaceful, nonviolent social change as well as a forum for renewal and encouragement for the individual who seeks direction from and understanding of God’s will and love.

Richard is best known for his numerous recorded teachings, and through the Center’s quarterly publication, Radical Grace. He is a regular contributing writer for Sojourners, Tikkun, and The Huffington Post. His most recent recorded teachings include Creation as the Body of God; Loving the Two Halves of Life: The Further Journey; and God As Us! the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine.

Rohr's bestselling books include The Naked Now, Everything Belongs, Adam’s Return, Simplicity, and The Enneagram.

Richard has been a featured essayist on NPR’s “This I Believe” and a guest of Dr. Mehmet Oz on the “Oprah and Friends” radio show. He appears in the 2006 documentary, ONE, that features spiritual teachers from around the world.
