Activities of the Institute

The Institute is designed to become an inspiration and guide for students to reflect upon and consider the deeper dimensions of their place in the environment and their own spirituality as they study a variety of disciplines. Students studying in Dingle will be challenged through brief presentations in class by guest lectures well versed in his ideas, readings, a series of investigative questions, and certain assignments that help students reflect on the significant ideas of John Moriarty. Documents, texts, videos, and other resources will be housed on the Dingle campus available for student use. The Institute will also host an annual John Moriarty lecture on the main Fairfield campus and lead "In the Footsteps of John Moriarty,” an adult educational tour of Ireland.

“The Geography of my mind is the geography of the world I walk in.” ~John Moriarty

The Institute will also offer space in the new CBS building for textual and media resources for individuals and groups to come to Dingle to reflect more deeply on Moriarty’s ideas. As the Institute grows it will sponsor study groups, workshops, monastic retreats, and publications that disseminate Moriarty’s ideas while creating additional revenue streams and enhancing our international reputation as an academic institution.

There is only one world but there are visionary and everyday ways of seeing it.” ~John Moriarty
