Richard Rohr presents his recent book Falling Upward. In the first half of life, we are naturally and rightly preoccupied with establishing our identity - climbing, achieving and performing. But those concerns will not serve us as we grow older and begin to embark on a further journey, one that involves challenges and mistakes that actually shock us out of our prior comfort zone. Eventually we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-giving way. This message of "falling down" - that is in fact moving upward - is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world's religions, including and most especially Christianity.

In this talk Rohr illustrates what he said in the book and why he felt the need to say it. He faces the questions of what matters and what doesn't matter at all.

Richard Rohr is joined by Suzanne Stabile and Sheryl Fullerton in a dynamic Question and Response session.

A Companion Journal for the book is also available separately.
