My goal is to share the fruits of contemplation with others through a variety of creative media - from traditional publishing to online learning, plus blogging, podcasting, and guided meditations.  I believe that life is the most fun and meaningful when we treat it as an adventure that we share with others in pursuit of our common good.  And so this site is designed as an invitation to explore the adventure of the contemplative life together.  Please enjoy the content available here, share it with others, and maybe even dive into some of the online community forums.

In my day job, I'm associate professor of Theology and Christian Ethics at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, MO, where I'm also the co-director of the Ashley-O'Rourke Center for Health Care Mission.  I'm also a Trustee of the Trust for the Meditation Process, an oblate of St. Benedict at St. John's Abbey (Collegeville, MN), and a comissioned presenter of Centering Prayer through Contemplative Outreach, Ltd.  As a scholar, teacher, and author I enjoy offering workshops, retreats, and consultations with a variety of groups and organizations.  If you are interested in contacting me about any of these services, please fill out the contact form below.

Quote of the Week

“There are few things in life...more revelatory to the contemplative than the stranger. It is the stranger who disarms all our preconceptions about life and penetrates all our stereotypes about the world.  It is the stranger who makes the supernatural natural.  It is the stranger who tests all our good intentions.

- Joan Chittister, OSB
