August 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
There is a paradigm shift going on that is affecting everything in this evolving universe. A NEW and universal Christ centered consciousness awaits us. It will allow us to discover that everything, including you and me, is “in Christ.” The “old” fear based mindset must die and give birth to a full reception of Gods transformative love.
This creative presentation will look to the mystics (past and present) as well as to the advances of science as we unmask the illusion of a “separate God” and celebrate the wonders of this relational universe around us and in us. Remember, “Mysticism is not something we achieve, it is something we receive”. Be ready to follow present day mystic Richard Rohr’s advice – “take your Christian head off, shake it wildly, and put it back on!” A NEW consciousness, a new “birthing of God” in our lives is awaiting.

Kevin Barr attended a Men’s Rite of Passage in 2001 lead by Franciscan priest, Richard Rohr. This five-day encounter was transformative. Just a few weeks after this ‘realignment’, Kevin left the business world and for the past 15 years has worked with low-income seniors, homeless men and women and men with intellectual disabilities in various roles at Catholic Social Services.
Kevin has an MA in religious Studies from St. Charles Seminary and a graduate certificate in Spiritual Direction from Neumann University. He has led spirituality reflections/workshops at Neumann and Immaculata Universities, as well as Saint Raphaela, Cranaleith, Franciscan Spiritual Center, and Malvern retreat Center. His presentations have always encouraged participants to embrace “a spirituality of imperfection” that gazes at life, love, faith and reality with “new eyes” and an open heart.
