 Suffering As A Path Of Transformation


A Contemplative Journey of Three Questions:

Why, What, & Who

Across Three Periods of Time: Past, Present, & Future


Suffering is most often viewed as a burden to be carried. Is it possible that suffering could be a gateway to living a more contemplative life? We invite you to join us as Rick Klein leads us in an exploration of the transformative potential of suffering. Rick will weave together insights from western and eastern spiritual traditions into a tapestry of compassion, forgiveness, and hope that can serve as a foundation for the contemplative journey.


"{May we} allow ourselves to be loved unconditionally and so be inspired to meet the needs of everyone in the human family past, present and to come." ~ Thomas Keating


Rick gives retreats and workshops on contemplative spirituality throughout Colorado. He is certified instructor of Centering Prayer and has presented workshops at the Center for Contemplative Living on the:

  • work of Teilhard de Chardin,
