About the Center for Action and Contemplation

The Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) is an educational nonprofit introducing seekers to the contemplative Christian path of transformation. Franciscan Richard Rohr founded the CAC in 1987 because he saw a deep need for the integration of both action and contemplation. Richard’s hope was to found a “school for prophets” rooted in contemplative wisdom and supporting social and spiritual renewal. As he likes to say, “The most important word in our Center’s name is neither Action nor Contemplation, but the word and.”

Based in Albuquerque, CAC programs and resources are designed to provide spiritual wisdom and guidance in support of inner and outer transformation. CAC offers learning opportunities through daily meditations, podcasts, online education, bookstore, events, and the Living School. CAC programs reach hundreds of thousands of people around the world, including more than 400,000 daily email subscribers. CAC’s current topline goal is to reach seven million+ people total and support one million+ people to adopt a contemplative spiritual path by 2027.
