    The Story of The Cosmic Egg

    The Story of The Cosmic Egg

    Richard Rohr, in conversation with Paul Swanson and Brie Stoner, discusses the final layer of the Cosmic Egg, The Story. Richard describes “the story” as the great patterns that are always true. We pull on the threads of love that are active when engaged in “the story”, play with metaphors that examine a new way of seeing the Cosmic Egg, the relationship between chaos and order, and the Universal Christ as the key to holding Cosmic Egg together.

Life giving and mind bending

This podcast has been a life saver to me. Richard and the team have genuinely been a life line for me over the last couple of years. The humility, vulnerability, grace and strength that they have in sharing their thoughts and ideas have challenged me, inspired me and enlightened me in my spiritual journey. I was in tears of gratitude when I heard it was coming to an end and so thankful that you all invested your time to capture these thoughts of Richard’s. Thank you and please don’t stop - you’re giving away eternity.
