Mysticism and Creation Spirituality - with Matthew Fox
with Matthew Fox
Fifty years ago, a young Matthew Fox asked Thomas Merton where he should go to study the mystics. What followed was a lifetime passion for Christianity’s mystical tradition, and its intimate, feminine, socially active, and uplifting spirit.
Matthew, now a spiritual theologian, is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. Join us for a jam-packed conversation about:
🔸 The necessary but often-forgotten connection between mysticism and social justice
🔹 Which of the two streams of Christianity is dominant today
🔸 What caused the shift from a love-based religion to a fear-based religion
🔹 How contemplation impacts our reptilian brains
🔸 Why we need both the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine
–And so much more!
Matthew Fox is a spiritual theologian, retreat leader, and activist. He has written over 3 dozen books including Original Blessing, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, A Spirituality Named Compassion, The Hidden Spirituality of Men, Christian Mystics and Julian of Norwich: Wisdom in a Time of Pandemic--and Beyond.
