The Center for Christogenesis is a spiritual organization that serves an axial role in our time, bridging faith, science, culture, and community.

The Center builds on the ideas of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
and seeks to actualize his vision of emerging wholeness for a new vitality of the spirit.

Our founder, Ilia Delio, OSF, offers an exploration of the divine as an awareness of God’s loving, dynamic presence.
This is a holistic vision–integrating spirituality, science, and contemplation–and open to all faith traditions.
We seek to extend this vision to all those looking for an innovative spiritual life and a renewed role of religion in the 21st century.

Reality Ever New—Center for Christogenesis December 2021 Fundraising Drive

The Center for Christogenesis is committed to a new vision of cosmotheandric wholeness. The time for Teilhard’s vision is now. With God there is only now and the overflow of now into the future. As we look toward a new year and new leadership, we realize the need to enhance our staff, our technologies and our partnerships. To grow, however, we need your help. Only with your financial support, can we realize a new energy center of cosmotheandric wholeness.

Annual Conference – Healing God, Healing Self, Healing Earth – Registration Open!

We are a global people on a planet in crisis. Extreme weather, shortages of water and food, and a swiftly mutating pandemic reveal a climate emergency that is speeding up rather than slowing down. We find ourselves in a wounded world, desperate for healing. These deep wounds begin with ourselves. Healing the Earth requires that we remedy our dangerous misconceptions: otherworldly spirituality, human superiority, and rampant individuality. Only the insights and practices of divine love can save our world: a spirituality of the Earth, a renewed togetherness with plants and animals, and a contemplative depth that brings us not only inward but that thrusts us into the very fabric of our living planet. Join us online for our fourth annual conference, as together we seek healing for our God, for ourselves, and for our world in the depths of divine love.

Limited Seats Available

Upcoming Zoom Conversation with Ilia Delio & Gregory Hansell
Reality Ever New

Join Ilia & Greg for an exploration of the true “Ecclesia Catholica”—a celebration of, and participation in, the dynamic wholeness of God’s endless Creation. In Teilhard’s words, a “Mass on the Altar of the World” has no boundaries of time or space, culture or nation, nature or technology. It is an everyday celebration of emerging wholeness whereby we must always welcome—and commit to help shepherd—the newness arising always around us.
