About The Center for Christogenesis
The VisionThe Center for Christogenesis envisions an emerging wholeness of God, world, and humanity through the transformative power of love in our scientific age.
Evolution marks the break from a closed, static, world of law and order to an open world of change and play. Evolution tells us that nature is not a closed, causal system of events but a complex series of fluid, dynamic, interlocking, and communicative relationships.
While scientists continue to understand how evolution works for physical systems, the Center for Christogenesis seeks to understand how evolution works for religious systems, as physical reality and spiritual reality are intertwined.
The Center for Christogenesis seeks to create a new religious imagination that ignites our energies to move beyond mediocrity and fear, one that anticipates a new future of planet life.
We are an unfinished species, corporately and personally, grounded in an infinite depth of Love; thus openness to love and what this means in terms of creatively reinventing ourselves as persons in evolution is the challenge ahead of us.
The Center of Christogenesis seeks to foster a new consciousness that is so needed today, an integral wholeness of love that is open to new life; a being-at-home in love that can evolve. By centering itself on the fundamental energy of love, Christianity (and all religions) can find new meaning and purpose by allowing modern science to challenge its stories and, at the same time, to offer the world of scientific reductionism a creative vision for the world.
The MissionThe mission of the Center for Christogenesis is to deepen Teilhard de Chardin’s integration of science and spirituality by providing insights and practices to enkindle awareness of love at the heart of reality.

Christophany Groups are local spiritual gatherings throughout the United States and around the world. The vision for these groups is to heal our world and transform lives through the real world experience of communal reflection, shared friendship, and collective spiritual practice. Christophany Groups are created and managed locally by Center for Christogenesis readers who seek to actualize the Teilhardian vision of Ilia Delio in their communities.
