Journey through the life, thought, and works of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

One of the most celebrated spiritual minds of the twentieth century, Teilhard de Chardin was both a respected scientist and a Jesuit priest. He combined an evolutionary worldview with his commitment to the Christian tradition. A pioneer in the dialogue between religion and science, he remains a widely influential mystical voice.

Now, this new program guides you through the timeless thought of Teilhard. Under the guidance of Teilhard expert Fr. Donald Goergen, you will explore Teilhard’s writings, including Writings in Time of War, a collection of essays he wrote during World War I, the spiritual classic The Divine Milieu, and the groundbreaking The Human Phenomenon. In doing so, you will examine such powerful themes as cosmology, Christology, spirituality, the mystery of suffering, and our understanding of God.

A restless spiritual seeker, Teilhard emphasized that the universe is unfinished, always on the move—and God, the Alpha and the Omega, is at its center. Teilhard will challenge you to think through the implications of God’s creative action being made manifest in evolutionary terms. As you will discover, within this cosmic vision lies a new mysticism—the ability to see God in Christ and in all things.

With a remarkable capacity for synthesis, Teilhard invites all of us into his powerful, compelling vision of the universe. Join him on this mystical journey today.

We especially recommend the video version, which contains many photographs from Teilhard's life. Watch a preview here:

Summer Survey: July 2017
This was used by a group of about eight meeting daily over about three years. Showed lecture, discussed for an hour, followed by happy hour. An integrating experience of various other series we've used. Review by Greg Speltz USA, Seattle, WA (Posted on 7/31/2017)
Summer Survey: July 2017
Father Goergen has an unbridled enthusiasm as he shows how the developments of Chardin's writings came from Chardin's life experiences and in turn, how we can live with this greater awareness within our own lives. Review by Patricia Amador Saratoga, NY USA (Posted on 7/29/2017)

Comprehensive, didn't insult my intelligence,(or lack of...), pushed me to take concepts past context of course. Review by Paul Viano, Kirkwood, Missouri, USA (Posted on 4/10/2017)
Winter Survey: January 2017
The author and the teacher, Donald Goergen, O.P. tread new ground in both religious insights and in an appreciation of the material universe and embodiment. This prepares the way for contemporary writers understanding both theology and its crossroads with physical science. Review by Peter Edlefsen Culver City, CA, USA (Posted on 1/7/2017)
Winter Survey: January 2017
Teilhard's thought points to the future and ties together science and spirituality. Father Goergen lays out his thought in a way that connects it to modern experience and sensibility. I have frequently used one or the other of his lectures as a basis for prayer. Review by Grace Seitzer, Glen Rock NJ, USA (Posted on 1/6/2017)
Fall Survey: October 2016
Fr. Goergen provides an insightful review of the life, the times, and the writings of Teilhard De Chardin. Fr. Goergen introduces topics from Chardins life experiences and the development of thought over his lifetime and subsequently where theologians have continued for the past 100 years.

Very informative!
Very informative. Clear and easy to understand; well-paced. The course took a very complex subject and made it simple. The presenter (Fr. Goergen) was obviously very well-schooled in the subject. Review by John (Posted on 4/28/2016)
All advanced thinking recognizes the need to move from a static to an evolutionary worldview.
It is my conviction that Teilhard de Chardin has given the world the foundation for moving to a new level of understanding between science and religion. They are not in conflict and recognizing their compability is essential for comprehending man's place in the evolution of both matter and spirit. All advanced thinking recognizes the need to move from a static to an evolutionary worldview. Review by Barbara (Posted on 4/28/2016)
Provides a clear, refreshing, and relevant foundation for catholicity at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

Father Pierre Tielhard was, I think, the first priest/ theologian/scientist to recast biological evolution in a theological framework.
Father Pierre Tielhard was, I think, the first priest/ theologian/scientist to recast biological evolution in a theological framework. His contribution in bridging the gap between science and faith too often goes unnoticed--even among Catholics.

A thoughtful, reverent presentation related to the road ahead.
My experience with many religious programs is that we are, in the words of Marshall McLuhan, driving into the future with our eyes on the rear view mirror. This is a thoughtful, reverent presentation related to the road ahead. Review by Grace (Posted on 9/3/2015)
It opened my eyes to help me link my prayer and study.
De Chardin by Goergen was the first NYKM course I listened to. His enthusiasm was so contagious & his insights inspirational. It opened my eyes to help me link my prayer and study. Review by Patricia (Posted on 9/3/2015)
I believe his genius is equal to those Giants who have revolutionized the way we think and understand truth.
Teilhard de Chardin is the first scientist/ theologian to identify the need to reunite science and religion and provide the foundation for doing so. I believe his genius is equal to those Giants who have revolutionized the way we think and understand truth. It is important for our future that the public begin to recognize that. Your media is helping that happen. Review by Barbara (Posted on 9/3/2015)
Life is a story problem from the Creator.
Life is a story problem from the Creator. Teilhard de Chardin helps us to discern the story and gives us the challenge to follow through to participate in the story of creation and doing our part to move it to its dramatic conclusion and denouement. Review by Al (Posted on 9/3/2015)

The presenter does an excellent job of digesting Teilhard's thoughts so we lay folk can absorb concepts we never would have if we had just read his essays. Every one attending this parish sponsored series is thrilled with the course. Review by Timothy Sullivan, Dedham, MA (Posted on 4/13/2015)

Teilhard's writings are very complex and challenging, they are clear and easy to understand in this program. I especially like that they can be listened to during long drives making double use of the drive time and increasing the pleasure of the drive. They also can be listened to many times to increase understanding of what I believe to be the greatest mind of the 20th Century.
