Please join us Thursday September 21 from 11:30am–12:30pm in the Wulsin student center for a conversation with Father Adam Bucko, Interreligious Pioneer, hosted by the Keating Schacter Center for Interspirituality.
Father Bucko, is a committed voice in the movement for the renewal of Christian Contemplative Spirituality and the growing New Monastic movement. He has taught engaged contemplative spirituality in Europe and the United States, and has authored “Let Your Heartbreak be Your Guide: Lessons in Engaged Contemplation” and co-authored “Occupy Spirituality: A Radical Vision for a New Generation”, and “The New Monasticism: An Interspiritual Manifesto for Contemplative Living”.
Father Bucko is a unique voice in the field of interspirituality and engaged contemplation. He is commited to an integration of contemplation and just practice. In this line of work and faith he cofounded an award-winning non-profit, the Reciprocity Foundation, where he spent 15 years working with homeless youth living on the streets of New York City, providing spiritual care, developing programs to end youth homelessness, and articulating a vision for spiritual mentoring in a post-religious world. He currently serves as a director of The Center for Spiritual Imagination at the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City, New York, and is a member of “The Community of the Incarnation,” a ‘new monastic’ community dedicated to democratizing the gifts of monastic spirituality and teaching contemplative spirituality, in the context of hearing and responding to the cry of the poor and the cry of the earth. Alongside his wife, a Buddhist Nun in Thich Nhat Han’s lineage, Adam co-leads the Buddhist Christian Community for Meditation and Action.
We hope to see you!
