Friday Night Lecture 6:30pm-8:30pm
Tuition Cost: Friday Night Lecture $25 in advance $30 at the door**
Host: The Sophia Institute, Charleston, SC
Location: To Be Announced

The modern age developed knowledge but at the expense of wisdom. The result has been ecological disaster, destitution for the indigenous peoples everywhere, loneliness and a loss of meaning and shared values in our lives. Religions have too often promoted an exclusivism, which has rent the human family apart and separated us from what unites us. We need a spirituality which brings wisdom back to our relationship with nature, to our work, to our educational systems, to “all our relations.” One that speaks to the “aching hearts” of the younger generation and that incorporates intuition and mysticism.

Matthew Fox will explore how creation spirituality can help us move to hope by awakening us to our divine origins, to the new creation story from science, to eco-justice and gender justice, to the wisdom shared in faith traditions of East and West and of indigenous peoples everywhere.

The awakening of the Divine Feminine and the Sacred Masculine can help to unleash creativity and sustainability. A new balance of Yin and Yang,Feminine and Masculine, is needed.

In these ways we can be transformative agents of healing and wholeness in the 21st Century. Great mystics like Meister Eckhart and Hildegard of Bingen will be called upon for what they teach about the Divine Feminine, compassion, justice and celebration of life.

We will undergo practices together that awaken spirit in us and learn from those pioneers of consciousness, the mystic-prophets of the past and present.

**A 3% Processing Fee will be added to all credit card orders.
