Course: Eckhart @ Erfurt - Erfurt, Germany

classroom.jpg

Join Matthew Fox and Friends for a UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY
to study the great medieval mystic MEISTER ECKHART
in Erfurt, Germany, in the very rooms where Eckhart
lived and taught and prayed!

“[Fox] not only gives us his beloved spiritual father as a living presence for our lives but also brings us a whole rainbow of mystic-warriors as companions on the way.” 
--Joanna Macy, author of Active Hope

Our studies, focusing on Meister Eckhart, will also include other mystics such as Hildegard of Bingen, also from the Rhineland. Our week will consist of body prayer in the mornings followed by teachings and discussions on Eckhart by Matthew Fox; and art as meditation classes in the afternoons.  Participants will choose for art as med either “Moving to Eckhart’s Words” led by dance instructor Meshi Chavez; or “Dreams and Journaling with Eckhart” led by Jungian therapist and author Steve Herrmann.

An optional Process Seminar will be offered daily after art as meditation by Claudia Picardi. Private meditation time in the Dominican choir stalls where Eckhart prayed is also encouraged.  The group will design and celebrate an “Eckhart Mass” on Thursday evening at the altar where Eckhart celebrated Mass regularly as prior. 

Eager registrants say....

  Please sign me up for the course next year. I am a retired Lutheran pastor and musician. I have been to Erfurt and visited his church. I feel like the Meister is my spiritual director. I have read Matthew's book and many others of Eckhart's and about him. This course offered in that place gives me goosebumps!
    When I was in Erfurt in 2004 looking at Luther sites like the Augustinian monastery I asked our tour guide where ME was. He did not know. On a trip downtown for lunch a rainstorm came up, A strong wind pushed me and my umbrella into the doorway of his church. You can see why I have goosebumps! Let me know any details of the trip that I need to know. Count me in!!!

About Eckhart and Erfurt

Meister Eckhart may well be the most significant mystic-prophet of the West.  His influence has been vast, running from Karl Marx and Carl Jung to Thomas Merton and John of the Cross to Dorothee Soelle and Eckhart Tolle.  His deep insights ring true to Buddhists, Sufis, Hindus, Jews and indigenous peoples. What better place to study him than in his own Dominican house where he lived “longer and more continuously than anywhere else during his lifetime,” according to historian Joel Harrington.

Predigerkirche in Erfurt was a Dominican priory and church in the middle ages.  Its Gothic church was still under construction during Eckhart’s time, the choir and high stone altar only fully roofed a year or two before his joining the Dominicans at 15 years of age.

Now Lutheran, the church and priory went amazingly undamaged for 700 years including the two world wars.  Updated and renovated, it provides a most special space of morphic resonance and deep memory in which to listen deeply to what Eckhart is telling us today amidst our struggles for eco-justice, social justice and an evolutionary leap towards a deeper consciousness for our species.   

Also in Erfurt is the Augustinian church where Martin Luther was ordained a priest.  And two hours away is Wittenburg where Luther pounded his theses that launched the Reformation movement and we will visit those sites as well.

Our Instructors

Matthew-smiling_edited-2.jpg

Like Meister Eckhart, Matthew Fox was a Dominican, until, like Eckhart, he was condemned by a corrupt papacy. Now a priest and educator in the Episcopalian church, he is recognized as a pre-eminent scholar of the work of Eckhart and other mystics. He has written three books on Eckhart and 33 other books on Creation Spirituality including three on Hildegard of Bingen. His books have been translated into 70 languages. He holds a doctorate in the history and theology of spiritualities from the Institut catholique de Paris. 

steven00033.jpg

Steven Herrmann, PhD, MFT is a Jungian psychotherapist and scholar who has been studying the “Master” for forty years. Herrmann studied with the former Dominican monk William Everson who was his faculty adviser at UC Santa Cruz for his Senior Thesis “Meister Eckhart: On the Recollection of the Self.” He has taught on Eckhart, Jungian literary criticism, American poetry, transpersonal psychology, vocational dreams, and led groups on Jungian dream work and journaling. Herrmann is the author of the books William Everson: The Shaman’s Call; Walt Whitman; Spiritual Democracy; and Emily Dickinson: A Medicine Woman for Our Times.

Meshi Chavez.jpg

Meshi Chavez is a choreographer and movement teacher based in Portland, OR. He began his teaching career in Soul Motion TM, and then got seduced by his pursuit of the dance form called Butoh. He is a student of Natsu Nakajima (the first female to dance this form) and Denise Fujiwara. Meshi is co-founder of Momentum Conscious Movement.  His approach to presence in the body is greatly influenced by his 20 years of working with Native Spiritual leaders and ceremonies.

 

Claudia.jpg

Claudia Picardi will oversee the workshop and also lead a “Process Seminar.”  Claudia holds a master’s in Transpersonal Psychology from ITP and a Doctorate in Computer Science.  As vice president of the Creation Spirituality Organization in Italy, she leads workshops on re-activating the imagination through fairy tales, myths and sacred texts.  In this optional Seminar following the Art as Meditation classes the learning of each day will be processed and shared via images, colors, words and impressions of the participants.

 

Comments on Fox’s books on Eckhart:

Meister Eckhart: A Mystic-Warrior for Our Times

“Fox has given us yet another radioactive, stunning work.  Every chapter is a true, clear, and swift revelation.
–Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism

“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.” 
--Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind

“In this book Matthew Fox, one of the gigantic Christians of this century, engages and presents Meister Eckhart, one of the gigantic Christians of the ages, in dialogue with some of today’s best minds.  The result is a stunning new vision of Christianity that transcends both creeds and boundaries.  It is a thrilling read.”
--John Shelby Spong, author of The Fourth Gospel; Tales of a Jewish Mystic

Passion for Creation: the Earth-Honoring Spirituality of Meister Eckhart

"The most important book on mysticism in 500 years." 
-- Madonna Kolbenschlag, author of Kissing Sleeping Beauty Goodbye.

"What Eckhart does in his work and what Fox brings out very well in this book are the awareness of that piece of God which is in each one of us." 
-- Dorothee Soelle, author of Thinking About God

 "This book marks an important stage in the rehabilitation of Eckhart, one of the supreme Masters of Catholic spirituality."
 -- Bede Griffiths, author of The Golden String

"This very readable volume gives us something of the thrill of mysticism."
 -- National Catholic Register

Dialogue/Discussion: Dialogue and Discussion: We’re Doomed! Now What? - San Francisco, CA

A U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq, Roy Scranton writes about sailing through a melting Arctic, preparing for severe storms amplified by climate change, and seeking meaning in life at a very precarious time in human history. His first book was Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization and his new work is We’re Doomed. Now What?  

Matthew Fox writes that advocates need to deepen their soul through spiritual practice in order to effectively addresss climate change, humanity's ultimate existential challenge. He believes that despair must be discussed and acknowledged for that can shut down human ingenuity needed to solve the climate crisis. He is optimistic that personal and collective awakening, anchored in love, will give us the fuel to build a cleaner and more just society.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: Reimagining Tradition, Boulder CO.

Rabbi Victor Gross, Ph.D. leads this ground breaking seminar at the Fox Institute for Creation Spirituality: Reimagining Tradition: Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, and Rev. Matthew Fox.

This course will examine teachings of three seminal spokespersons and contributors for
the emergence of new paradigms in spirituality: Rabbi Heschel, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-
Shalomi and Rev. Mathew Fox. All are teachers of non-duality, God-centeredness, and
the centrality of doing and being a partner in the ongoing co-creation. The Deep
Ecumenism of all three collapsed the separation long experienced in history and opened
up new avenues for dialogical encounter. We will examine their commonality in the ways
they evoke new and yet ancient transformative principles for all the inhabitants of this
planet.

INTENSIVE: Thomas Merton, Mystic & Prophet - Boulder, CO

Matthew Fox leads a new intensive on the mysticism of Thomas Merton at the  Fox Institute for Creation Spirituality

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was one of the great spiritual writers and mystic-prophets of the twentieth century. From the time of his conversion at the shrine of the Black Madonna in Cuba in 1940 to his untimely martyrdom in Bangkok for opposing the war in Vietnam in 1968, his spirituality evolved profoundly. He journeyed deeply from being very much a dualistic monk from 1940-1957 to being a prophetic leader leading out a creation spirituality path under the influence of Zen master D.T. Suzuki and Meister Eckhart beginning in 1958.

His prophetic voice addressed issues of Ecology, Feminism, Racism, the rights and oppression of indigenous peoples, Technology’s excess, War (he coached the Berrigan brothers among others in non-violent resistance), Peace, bogus religion (he called the marriage of fundamentalism and empire the “greatest orgy of idolatry the world has ever seen”). He offered medicines to heal us including Deep Ecumenism (his close friendship with the Dalai Lama and Thich Naht Hanh are well known), a theology of the Cosmic Christ (“How is it possible to tell everyone they are walking around shining like the sun?” he asked following on a mystical experience at lunch time rush hour in downtown Louisville) and the cultivation of contemplation.

In this class we will explore the depth teachings of this man around contemplation and action, mysticism and prophecy and what he is telling us today about our spiritual vocations including cultural criticism.

5-Day Intensive: The Reinvention of Work, Boulder, CO

Matthew Fox leads the 5-day intensive, "The Reinvention of Work," at the Fox Institute for Creation Spirituality in Boulder, CO.

Work is often at the heart of peoples' identity and what they accomplish and give back in their lifetime. Whether it's preparing for work (education), doing our work, or recovering from work, we leave our footprint on history by the work we undertake. Spiritual traditions the world over acknowledge the sacred dimension to a calling or vocation to work and many people search to hear such a calling. Given the many challenges of our time—and with ecological needs at the forefront—how well are we doing? How healthy are our professions at this time in history? Do they create or do they destroy? How can we improve them so that they truly serve future generations and the health of the planet? Our readings and discussions and occasional guests who have reworked their professions will examine these important questions. How do we infiltrate our work worlds with values that inspire sustainability? We will call on teachings from various spiritual traditions for their wisdom on work, its meaning and deeper purposes.

SUMMIT: Global Oneness Day - Online

Join featured speaker Matthew Fox and 50+ other international thought leaders during the 8th annual Global Oneness Day on Tuesday, October 24th. 

Over the past eight years, Global Oneness Day has grown and matured into the “Earth Day” for an Awakened Humanity. This year, Matthew Fox will be speaking along with participating leaders: Michael Beckwith, Marianne Williamson, Jean Houston, Doreen Virtue, Nassim Haramein, Panache Desai, Gary Zukav, Ervin Laszlo, Neale Donald Walsch, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Lynne McTaggart and Ervin Laszlo, and so many others.

Learn about Global Oneness Day and see all the speakers: https://vg165.isrefer.com/go/g1d17MF/mfox/

And, tens of thousands committed to Oneness and the awakening of the planet, just like you, will participate in the exploration, excavation, and development of our conscious connection to the Divine, each other, and the field of Oneness which encompasses all of Life.

Global Oneness Day is not just an event but an experience; one that invites you to bring Oneness into your life in practical ways, not merely conceptually, providing experiential proof that living in Oneness enables you and all of humanity to thrive!

It is a day that encourages each of us to expand our hopes, beliefs, and behaviors so that humanity will finally realize a dream, a time immemorial reality of a world living in peace, harmony, and happiness.
