Discussing Creation Spirituality and all that entails. Followed by Why Women Need Goddess - Pt 4 of 4
Today we'll be discussing Rev. Matthew Fox's life work - Creation Spirituality and that is a lot of road to cover, including his new book, Essential Writings on Creation Spirituality, with an intro by Charles Burack, and part of the Modern Spiritual Masters Series. We'll delve into what Creation Spirituality actually is, as well as the comparison between being religious vs spiritual, the nature of evil and angels, including scientific research proving angels are real - along with Matthew's own personal experience with angels. Creativity as a power of the universe and the key to our genius will be discussed as well as Cosmic Masses. Time permitting we'll examine compassion vs pity and wisdom vs knowledge.

Rev. Matthew Fox, PhD, author, theologian, and activist priest, has been calling people of spirit and conscience into the Creation Spirituality lineage for over 50 years. His 38 books, lectures, retreats, and innovative education models have ignited an international movement to awaken people to be mystics and prophets, contemplative activists, who honor and defend the earth and work for justice. Seeking to establish a new pedagogy for learning spirituality that was grounded in an effort to reawaken the West to its own mystical traditions in such figures as Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart and the mysticism of Thomas Aquinas, as well as interacting with contemporary scientists who are also mystics, Fox founded the University of Creation Spirituality. His recent projects include Order of the Sacred Earth and Daily Meditations with Matthew Fox as well as the Cosmic Mass. His most recent books are: Julian of Norwich: Wisdom in at Time of Pandemic—and Beyond; and The Tao of Thomas Aquinas: Fierce Wisdom for Hard Times. Other books include Original Blessing, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, A Spirituality Named Compassion, The Reinvention of Work, Christian Mystics. www.matthewfox.org. www.dailymeditationswithmatthewfox.org
