Thomas Merton remains a profound spiritual influence in our time. In this talk by David Belcastro, we explore the hermitage, not in the remote knobs of Kentucky but rather at the intersection of life in the city, where commerce, politics, the arts and everything else happens in the modern world. Admission is by donation

David Joseph Belcastro, Ph.D.
, is professor of religious studies in the Department of Religion and Philosophy at Capital University, in Bexley, Ohio. He is president of the International Thomas Merton Society and co-editor of The Merton Annual. David is also a certified yoga teacher. Just for fun, he gardens, bakes bread, and has amazing conversations with his grandsons.
