We are currently feeling the need for a spirituality that no longer hides our contemplatives in comfortable monasteries, but instead recognizes that we are all called to be mystics and prophets at once. This new spirituality integrates contemplation with activism and prophetic witness on behalf of justice and compassion, deals with the transformation of the whole-person, integrates spiritual practices from various traditions and emphasizes the need for intergenerational collaboration and wisdom. Join us for this inspiring retreat with an intergenerational duo—renowned theologian, activist and visionary Matthew Fox and spiritual activist Adam Bucko—and explore the directions the earth is asking us to embark on today. We will explore intergenerational wisdom, activism as a form of contemplation, vocation as a spiritual practice and practices in spiritual democracy while sharing in small groups. We will also share in some contemplative prayer and in a survey on spirituality that young people interviewed for Adam and Matthew’s new book, Occupy Spirituality, also took. We will use inspiration from our mystical ancestors still eager to share with us including Eckhart, Hildegard, Dorothy Day, Howard Thurman and courageous voices from today’s Occupy Generation.
Friday Keynote: A Mystic Warrior for Our Time: Meister Eckhart in the 21st Century
How can a renowned 14th-century German philosopher and mystic deepen your life? Let Matthew Fox, one spiritual warrior, inform you about another! Deepen your own mysticism and your own call to warriorhood and justice-making as you discover for yourself the enduring relevance of Eckhart. Along the way, you’ll explore the intersections of social justice and the divine feminine; contemplation and letting go; cosmic awareness; and the historical Jesus and the Cosmic Christ. The visionary work of Meister Eckhart has had a profound influence on major voices of the 20th Century and his creation-centered cosmology overlaps profoundly with the writings of Zen Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hahn and Christian theologian Teilhard de Chardin. Travel through some of Eckhart’s rich theology and put it into practice through discussion, reflection and sacred circle dancing.
Adam Bucko is cofounder of the Reciprocity Foundation, empowering homeless youth to break the cycle of poverty, and HAB, an inter-spiritual contemplative fellowship focused on training young people in radical spirituality and sacred activism.
Matthew Fox is an internationally acclaimed theologian working in the creation spirituality tradition of Christianity. He is the best-selling author of 30 books, including Original Blessing, A Spirituality Named Compassion, and The Coming of the Cosmic Christ.

The Cosmic Mass at Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland, Ohio
with Matthew Fox
May 16, 2015 beginning 6pm
The Cosmic Mass (TCM) is an interactive community dance celebration created by Matthew Fox that re-invents the form of worship. It integrates elements of techno-rave, temple, art exhibit, dance hall, meditation, and intentional space to touch the deepest parts of your being and cultivate your relationship with your own personal form of spirituality within a community.
Incorporating cosmology, ritual, immersive visual art, music, spoken word and the practice of dance, The Cosmic Mass invites participants of all spiritual traditions to engage body and spirit directly.
The Cosmic Mass reinvigorates Western ritual by deconstructing the forms of worship we have inherited from the modern era and going back to the most primal form of worship: dance. DJs and live musicians provide the musical ambiance and the VJ or video artist provides immersive images that tell the story of the theme celebrated. We dance in the presence of these images, bringing in the spirit of the theme.
Matthew Fox is an internationally acclaimed spiritual theologian, an Episcopal priest, and an activist who was a member of the Dominican Order for 34 years. Learn more about The Cosmic Mass.
