Sister Ilia Delio, OSF, is the recipient of a Templeton Course in Science and Religion award and the author of 22 books, including The Unbearable Wholeness of Being, Care for Creation (Catholic Press Book Award 2010), The Emergent Christ (Catholic Press Book Award 2013) and Making All Things New: Catholicity, Cosmology, and Consciousness, nominated for the 2018 Grawemeyer Award. Her books have been translated into Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, and German.
In 2015, she became general editor of a new book series by Orbis Books called "Catholicity in an Evolving Universe" of which there are currently ten books scheduled for publication. She lectures nationally and internationally on topics including evolution, artificial intelligence, consciousness, culture, and religion.
Wisdom House is an interfaith retreat and conference center presenting programs in spirituality, wellness, the arts, and ecology, and offering hospitality to academic, civic, nonprofit, and business organizations. "We are committed to sustainability, justice, and welcoming people of all backgrounds and beliefs," stated executive director Deborah Kelly.
"We are especially interested in environmental sustainability programs," explained Kelly, "and our connection with The Center at Mariandale has been many decades long. Additionally, we are delightfully aware that programs presented by Sister Ilia Delio, OSF tend to attract standing-room capacity."
The cost to attend the summit via Zoom at Wisdom House is $20 per person. Registration is required by calling Wisdom House at 860-567-3163 or visiting www.wisdomhouse.org. Wisdom House is located at 229 East Litchfield Road in Litchfield, Connecticut.
