The mission of the Omega Center is to deepen Teilhard de Chardin’s integration of science and spirituality by providing insights and practices to enkindle awareness of love at the heart of reality.
Upcoming Webinar with Ilia: Seeking Wholeness in an Age of Fragments
The news distracts us from our true reality; yet, nature teaches us that we emerge out of dynamic wholeness and we are created for wholeness. From a religious perspective, the wholeness of nature rising up in us through higher levels of consciousness is God. What are the factors in our age that are blinding us from this reality? Here we will look at factors militating against evolution. We will discuss how Teilhard saw evolution as filled with conflicting forces of resistance, and how contemplation may be the most radical choice we can make for a world struggling toward unity in love.
Annual Conference – Love at the Heart of the Cosmos – Registration Open!
Divine Love, according to Teilhard de Chardin, is the core energy of the cosmos. God’s love is unceasing, dynamic, and creative—pulsing in the heart of all things, driving us ever forward to newness. But in these tumultuous times, we need a new story of the whole to guide our way. It is a story where religion and science, faith and contemplation, and nature and technology converge toward a new creation. Join us for our second annual conference and be part of that story.
