A Spirituality for the 21st Century

A Patron Saint for Colonizers and Racists?
Say No to the Canonization of Junipero Serra!

As the Vatican draws nearer to canonizing Junipero Serra, the Franciscan friar responsible for the brutal Catholic missionizing of the indigenous peoples of California and the West Coast of the Americas, Matthew Fox stands with indigenous rights activists and organizations in sending a resounding voice protest.

 Have You Read Matthew Fox’s Recent Books?


In a series of deeply inspiring and challenging metaphorical meetings, Matthew Fox introduces the pioneering medieval thinker Meister Eckhart to modern thought-leaders and activists including Rabbi Heschel; Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry; Thich Naht Hanh; Carl Jung; Rumi and Hafiz; Black Elk and more.

“This book on Eckhart stands as testament to Fox’s own creative spiritual genius.”  –Tikkun Magazine

“Whether our species has a future on Earth does not depend on the development of more gee-whiz technologies, but on whether we are willing to move into the psycho-spiritual dimension proclaimed by Meister Eckhart and elucidated by Matthew Fox in this important book. …In this endeavor, however, time is not on our side. On this crucial journey, let Meister Eckhart and Matthew Fox be your guide. I pray this book sells zillions.”
