ANDRÉS G. NIÑO is a member of the Augustinian Order and has a PhD in clinical psychology, trained at Beth Israel Medical Center, New York. He has taught psychology at Merrimack College and served as religious adviser at Wellesley and Amherst Colleges. At present he is affiliated with the Augustinian community at Austin House, Andover-Boston, and continues his research work that started at Harvard University (1990) on the integration of spirituality in clinical practice.
His project of the Spiritual Exercises in the book of Confessions is an ongoing major engagement, through retreats and seminars, in that line of research and applied work. Other scholars committed to bring Augustine’s message of interiority to the people in our contemporary society, have joined the project that is now a point of encounter and a ‘common task’.
Andrés G. Niño has worked also in various projects of the Order that provided him with extensive pastoral and educational experience in countries such as New Guinea, India and the Philippines before establishing his work in the United States.
