Adam Bucko is an activist and spiritual director to many of New York City’s homeless youth and the co-author of Occupy Spirituality: A Radical Vision for a New Generation. He grew up in Poland during the totalitarian regime and spent his early years exploring the anarchist youth movement as a force for social and political change. At 17, Adam immigrated to America where his desire to find his path towards a meaningful life led him to monasteries in the U.S. and India, where he began working with homeless youth at the “Ashram of the Poor.” Returning to the US, he worked on the streets of various American cities with young people struggling against homelessness and prostitution, eventually co-founded The Reciprocity Foundation, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of New York City’s homeless youth. Adam has also established HAB, an ecumenical and inter-spiritual “new monastic” fellowship for young people which offers formation in radical spirituality and sacred activism. Adam’s work has been featured by ABC News, CBS, NBC, New York Daily News, National Catholic Reporter, Ode Magazine, Yoga International Magazine and Sojourner Magazine.
