BRINGING WISDOM DOWN TO EARTH: NOTES FROM MERTON'S LAST DECADE
Dr. Christopher Pramuk
Please join us in an exploration of Thomas Merton’s life and spiritual journey, with special emphasis on Merton’s experience of the divine presence in nature. How Does engagement with both Christian and non-Christian wisdom traditions offer signposts toward a more integrated and holistic way of being in relationship to the world? What does Merton’s witness teach us about the information technology that shapes all of us, and especially young people today?
Dr. Pramuk brings to bare his experience as a parent, teacher, and student of both Christian and Buddhist contemplative traditions to his examination of Merton’s life. His books will be available for purchase.
Dr. Christopher Pramuk is the Chair of Ignatian Thought and Imagination at Regis University and an Associate Professor of Theology. His work at Regis is a kind of hybrid of Jesuit mission-related initiatives as well as teaching courses in theology and spirituality.
He is the author of six books, including two award-winning studies of Thomas Merton, as well as Hope Sings, So Beautiful: Graced Encounters Across the Color Line, a meditation on race relations in society and church. Chris’s latest book, The Artist Alive: Explorations in Music, Art and Theology, draws from his many years of using music, poetry, and the arts in the classroom.
Dr. Pramuk lectures widely around the country and has led retreats on topics such as racial justice, Ignatian Spirituality and the witness of Thomas Merton.
