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.

“A Hunger for Wholeness” is a podcast that engages with speakers in interdisciplinary fields of science and religion who are finding answers for how to live wholistic lives. We want to be part of creating a future that will birth a way of life where religion and science do not compete, but support and complement one another. Companioned by experts, we examine how our culture reveals a desire for love at the center of the universe and how religion and science cooperate to bring that love alive. Join us!
