This conference will study Thomas Merton's writings, messages and prophetic vision of for our times.

We are living in a climate of political chaos and a regression on many of the issues of the 1960's. By staying with his own words, we will be challenged, in this new generation to face racism, violence, political shadows and war.

Come and create a spiritual community to engage our world in the light of wisdom.
