Francis Bennett is a former Trappist monk and hospice chaplain. His beliefs evolved to a more inclusive mystical, non-dogmatic approach when, in 2010, while in the middle of mass, he experienced “a radical perceptual shift in consciousness,” illuminating the awareness that the presence of God is at the heart of everything. His vision is informed by his love of the Christian mystics and is deepened by what he has learned from intensive work with Buddhist teachers. Francis now devotes shares his message with those interested in integrating spirituality into everyday life, offering events and retreats in the US and Europe. We spoke about his transformative awakening, his unique path and his current work. Learn more about Francis Bennett here:
