Symposium: The Science of Love - Winter Park, FL


Leading-edge science supports a new understanding of love as the fundamental energy of evolution, bearing witness in woke consciousness toward social, environmental and gender justice.

Gladdening Light welcomes  Matthew Fox, acclaimed activist and theologian who’s ignited the (r)evolutionary creation spirituality movement in four decades of teaching & authorship, and Ilia Delio, Villanova University professor and authority on the integration of science with religion, who will address the vision of Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin, exploring the undivided wholeness of cosmic evolution.  Together, they will address our comprehension of the gravitational heart of the universe in bloom.  All on the campus of Rollins College.

Participating throughout are Nóirín Ní Riain and Owen & Moley Ó Súilleabháin, resonant troubadours in the ancient Irish a cappella tradition who will premier a processional soundscape concert amid candlelit icons in Knowles Memorial Chapel.
