Gregory R. Hansell is Executive Director of the Omega Center.
Greg brings an interest in the science and religion dialogue, the spiritual meaning of technology, and particular foci in complexity science, evolutionary theory, and developmental philosophies. A long-time reader of the work of Sr. Ilia Delio, Greg believes the Omega Center represents a bold new spiritual vision that will address the deep divisions and spiritual yearnings of our time.
