Lecture: The Mystics in Ourselves and Others: Eckhart, Hildegard, Merton and Fox
Friday, March 31, 2017 | 7:30-9:30 PM (Doors open at 7 PM)
Matthew Fox explores how we can move to hope by awakening to our divine origins. From the new universe story from science to eco- and gender- justice, to the wisdom shared by Meister Eckhart, Hildegaard de Bingen and Thomas Merton, we can find our own inner mystic and prophetic voice. Creation cosmology overlaps with the writings of Zen Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hahn and Dr. D.J. Suzuki who influenced Thomas Merton. The awakening and balancing of the Divine Feminine and the Sacred Masculine can help unleash creativity and sustainability and cause us to become transformative agents of healing and wholing in the 21st century.
Workshop: Stations of the Cosmic Christ
Saturday, April 1, 2017 | 10:00 AM-1:00 PM (Doors open at 9:30 AM)
Albert Einstein wrote that the future of humanity depends on a “cosmic religion” grounded in conscience. Come experience this new contemplative practice created by spiritual theologian Matthew Fox and Bishop Mark Andrus. In this pilgrimage one meditates on the seven “I ams” and the nine events in the life of Jesus that are cosmic-based including the Nativity, Baptism, Transfiguration, Pentecost, etc. The stations were created by artists M.C. Richards and Ullrrich Javier Lemus. The practice is laid out with pictures in the book Stations of the Cosmic Christ by Matthew Fox and Bishop Marc Andrus. Fox takes us into an ecological and cosmic understanding of the role that a Cosmic Christ theology can play in our time.
