Ric Hudgens

Independent scholar-activist-consultant in Evanston, Illinois

I am an independent scholar-activist/organic-intellectual practicing what my friends at GEEZ Magazine call "contemplative cultural resistance".

My mission is to connect people of faith with spiritual resources that energize broader movements of social change.

I work with individuals, faith communities, and non-profit organizations to create spaces for God's freedom dreams through faith-rooted organizing, spiritual direction, and social justice fundraising.

Formed in the traditions of radical Christian discipleship my research, writing, and activism is guided by the framework of Buddhist eco-philosopher Joanna Macy's "Three Dimensions of the Great Turning".

At its core everything I do is about education, storytelling, and the exercise of a prophetic and hopeful imagination.
