About Francis:
 
Francis Bennett was an ordinary, sociable young man who answered the call to a life of spiritual adventure as a contemplative in the monastery of the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance, commonly known as the Trappists. Thomas Merton, the pioneering Christian mystic of the 20th century, was Francis’ inspiration, and it was Merton’s influence that led Francis to explore the deepest reality of being, within the frameworks of Christianity, Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta and non-duality. Since he moved away from the monastic life, Francis has worked with the sick and dying in parishes, hospitals and hospices. In 2010, while in the middle of mass, there came what Francis descries as “a radical perceptual shift in consciousness”, which made it clear that the pure awareness at the heart of all is no different from the presence of God, which he had been seeking outside himself for so long.
 
Currently Francis leads retreats throughout the U. S. and is the author of the book “I AM THAT I AM”.
