Practicing Radical Compassion: A Workshop with Andrew Dreicter, Ph.D.
The Brown University Contemplative Studies Initiative is pleased to announce a day long workshop (11am - 4:30pm) with Andrew Dreicter, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Spirituality, Claremont School of Theology.
Dr. Dreitcer has been the co-founding director of a seminary program in spiritual direction and served 15 years as a Presbyterian pastor. A year spent at the ecumenical monastic community of Taizé significantly shaped his own spiritual life and his perspective on both the role of spiritual formation in theological studies and the value of contemplative studies in academia.
Dr. Dreitcer's current research and teaching interests lie in the exploration of the nature and experience of contemplative practices across religious traditions, the relationship between spiritual practices and neuroscientific understandings (http://neurospirituality.blogspot.com), the ways in which contemplative practices form compassionate actions and attitudes of living, and Christianity as a spiritual path of engaged compassion (http://www.triptykos.com). He is also Director of Spiritual Formation at Claremont School of Theology and co-director of the Center for Engaged Compassion.
Ticket proceeds will go toward continuing programs and events of the Brown Contemplative Studies Initiative. For more information on Contemplative Studies at Brown, please visitL
