What if changing our perception of God has the potential to change everything? God is not what you think. Visions of an angry, distant, moral scorekeeper or a supernatural Santa Claus handing out cosmic lottery tickets to those who attend the right church or say the right prayer dominate our culture. For many others, God has become irrelevant or simply unbelievable. In The Divine Dance, Fr. Richard Rohr (with Mike Morrell) points readers to an unlikely opening beyond this divinity impasse: the at-times forgotten, ancient mystery of the Trinity—God as utterly one, yet three. Drawing from Scripture, theology, and the deepest insights of mystics, philosophers, and sages throughout history, Fr. Rohr presents a compelling alternative to aloof and fairytale versions of God: One God, belovedly in communion, as All-Vulnerable, All-Embracing, and All-Given to you and me. The Divine Dance makes accessible and practicable the Christian tradition's most surprising gift... God as Community...as Friendship...as Dance. Are you ready to join in?

The Divine Dance is the first popular work by a fresh thought leader. These brief essays are a distillation of Charlie's two decades of business, educational and spiritual leadership. At its heart, The Divine Dance is an invitation for spiritual seekers to experience with intelligence and passion the very Life of God. Christian teaching on the Trinity is nearly 2000 years old, but an individual's enjoyment of God can be new every day. Charlie's writing is conversational, direct and insightful, urging readers to awaken to God's personal love and take personal responsibility for their own development. The dance motif helps to convey the joy, movement and unity that are part of a person's life with God and with others. Love for God and others are inseparable. Personal growth occurs in community, not in a vacuum. Kathy Self's visuals and poetry enliven the book like a prism refracting light into beautiful colors. The Divine Dance is the first in a series of works that will capture the imagination, enliven the mind and engage the heart in a relentless pursuit of joy and wholeness. Future works include Praying Naked: Spiritual Freedom in Marriage and Seven Minutes a Week: The Bible for the Rest of Us.

The Divine Dance of Love

This extended personal meditation on the mystery of Christ seeks to show how we participate in the reality which we call God by entering into, and sharing in, the experience of Jesus. In so doing the mystery of Christ is revealed and realised in us as it is in Jesus, and we become caught up in The Divine Dance of Love. The Carol 'My Dancing Day' is used as a framework: each verse focuses on a particular stage or event in the life of Jesus -- from birth to temptation, suffering, death, resurrection and ascension. The image of the dance is important, precisely because it conveys this sense of involvement, experience and partnership with Christ. It is hoped that these meditations will enable the reader to be drawn more deeply into the mystery of Christ, which, although hidden, is waiting to be discovered and known at the heart of everything, for it is in Christ himself that God invites the whole of creation to dance in his love and to enter into the fullness and the joy of life.

Just This is a collection of brief and evocative meditations and practices. It invites us to cultivate the gift of waking up to the beauty of reality in all its glorious ordinariness. With his signature blend of contemplation, theology and pastoral sensitivity, Fr Richard Rohr creates a spaciousness for the soul to grow into a kind of seeing – one that goes far beyond merely looking, to recognizing and thus appreciating. This is the heart of contemplation, the centerpiece of any inner dialogue that frees us from the traps of our perceptions and preoccupations. The contemplative mind does not tell us what to see; it teaches us how to see what we behold. Praise for Richard Rohr’s The Divine Dance: ‘A beautiful choreography for a life well-lived.’ Bono, U2

'I cannot put this book down'– Bono In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’ last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understanding has been limited by culture, religious squabbling, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the centre. Drawing on scripture, history and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. ‘God loves things by becoming them,' he writes, and Jesus’ life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God – except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator’s presence all around us and in everyone we meet. Thought-provoking, practical and full of deep hope and vision, The Universal Christ is a landmark book from one of our most beloved spiritual writers, and an invitation to contemplate how God liberates and loves all that is.

In contrast to the popular notion that the doctrine of the Trinity hinders Christians from engaging with the reality of religious diversity, this book argues that the doctrine is the best way of constructing contemporary theology of religions. An Imaginative Glimpse reexamines three prominent Trinitarian theologians of religions (Raimundo Panikkar, Gavin D'Costa, and S. Mark Heim) and proposes a fresh and creative model by bringing the classical idea of perichoresis to its present-day multifaith situation. Opening a new alternative in both Trinitarian theology and theology of religions, Adiprasetya's approach adds a distinctive contribution to the ongoing and challenging discussion in both fields. By using perichoresis imaginatively as a multidimensional category for multiple religious participations within the Trinity, Adiprasetya argues that the model is able to respect all religions on their own terms, while at the same time being faithful to the Christian standpoint.

About the Book: Waltz to the Future: A Divine Dance of 30 Perfumed Poems is a poetic tapestry of expressive ruminations on the world around us and within us. Chitra Lele gives us a superb helping of her ingenious poetry. 30 poems of talented Chitra come gift-wrapped like exotic wine chocolates. These lift the sullen spirit and remind the reader that if the fountain in your heart is intact, nothing is lost; you can waltz to your glorious future assuredly. Divided into 10 sections (inner realms, master the mind, the truth, reclaim the purpose of life, turbo-charge the energy fields, go for it, canopy of peace, family ties, success mantra and the green haven), the poems rhyme well, words flow easily, thoughts crystallize, ideas form and a doable agenda evolves for a world sans borders, sans arms, sans wars, sans 'isms', sans poverty. In this volume, Chitra has fused Rabindranath Tagore's 'Mysticism', Toru Dutt's 'Innovative Ideas', Sarojini Naidu's 'Indianness' and Kamala Das's 'Frankness'. She writes compact poetry with a sense of aesthetic balance. Coupled with profound insights, resonant imagery, varied themes and tones, and subtle nuances, Chitra through her soul-stirring poems, provides a candle at the end of a very long tunnel. Chitra's poetry not only inspires, enlightens, enthuses and motivates people, but also records their aspirations, ambitions, sorrows and struggles. Each poem is highly engaging and can prove to be a tool for spiritual catharsis. What will you gain from this book: Feel your faith grow; Timeless truths; A commonsense take on various aspects of life, right from the world within us to Mother Nature around us; Cross over the threshold of ordinary life into a world of extraordinary luminosity and of spiritual significance; and much more. The dark tides of grief transform into a spectral rainbow of a bright future as we learn to waltz on the divine rhythm of these perfumed poems.
