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.

Dialogue: What Connects Us-and Why Is It Important?

Matthew Fox and philosopher of living systems David Korten discuss "What Connects Us-and Why Is It Important?" at the IONS Conference: The Science of What Connects Us, being held July 20-23 in Oakland, CA

The dialogue takes place Thursday, 7/20 and is free with conference registration; additional fee for general public

Fox and Korten will explore how to translate a spiritual awakening into a societal transformation that is sustainable, respects all creation as sacred, and leaves no one behind. The frontiers of science suggest that matter as a thing-in-itself is an illusion and that only relationships are real. By this reckoning, our understanding of relationship holds the key to understanding reality, the purpose and possibilities of creation, and humanity’s place in creation’s unfolding. We will explore the levels of being human that unite all people and for which a new civilization must make room. What does it look like to be true to our deepest humanity and to be in kinship with all our relations?

Conference: The "Wicked Problem" of Climate Change: What is it doing to us and for us? - Star Island, NH

Join Matthew Fox at the 63rd Conference of the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science: 'The "Wicked Problem" of Climate Change: What is it doing to us and for us?'

The Conference is held in partnership with the Parliament of the World's Religions,
June 24 - July 1, 2017, at Star Island off Portsmouth, NH

Climate change is a “wicked problem” with causes and consequences in economic, ecological, ethical, and technological realms. As climate change continues to alter our planet, how can we use this monumental change as an opportunity for societal and spiritual transformation? 

     “Uncertainty and ambiguity emerge here as resources, because they force us to
      confront those things we really want—not safety in some distant and contested
     future, but justice and self-understanding now.”      - Sheila Jananoff

What is the way forward? We must confront climate change as a planetary community. It affects every institution, society, public policy, culture and ecosystem into the foreseeable future. Every possible course of action intertwines with issues of international and intra-societal economic and social justice.  Climate change is a multigenerational, transnational “wicked problem” with no single, simple solution.

oming to terms with what the “wicked problem” of rapid climate change might do for us will take creativity, imagination, and complex interdisciplinary thinking of organizations like IRAS.

Workshop: The Return of the Sacred Masculine: 10 Archetypes for Women & Men - Rowe, MA

Matthew Fox offers a workshop on The Return of the Sacred Masculine: 10 Archetypes for Women & Men at the Rowe Center n Rowe, MA. 

Much of what passes for masculinity in our culture and religion is anything but sacred. It is toxic, and this toxicity affects not only men but also women in their roles as mothers, sisters, spouses, and human beings. The Goddess has been returning to Western consciousness for decades through the women’s movement, feminist scholarship, and rediscoveries of the Sacred Feminine; now it’s time to resurrect the Sacred Masculine as well, so that the Goddess may have a proper consort. The survival of our species requires this healthier balance between yin and yang, between the feminine and masculine energies that live within each of us.

A Weekend Retreat: Practices will include circle dancing and journal/poetry writing and sharing, grieving, chanting, a mini-pilgrimage of the Stations of the Cosmic Xst and more. Awakening creativity is key.

Einstein says humanity needs a "cosmic religion" grounded in conscience; Thomas Berry says "ecology is functional cosmology." Therefore, a recovery of the archetype of the Cosmic Christ from the Christian mystical tradition and the Buddha Nature from Buddhism and the Image of God from Judaism are important movements at this time of human and planetary history. As Berry says, "eventually only a sense of the sacred will save us," and these archetypes provide exactly that. We will explore Buddhist writers like Thich Nhat Hanh and Christian writers from Thomas Merton to Meister Eckhart, Hildegard of Bingen and Mary Oliver and the work of Rabbi David Seiderman on Jewish ecology to awaken the sense of the Sacred Earth for us all.

Salon: Befriending the Unknown and Embracing Uncertainty: Multi-Faith Perspectives, Berkeley CA

Matthew Fox joins Estelle Frankel, Shaykh Yassir, and Issa Nessim Baba at The Open Faith Salon for a conversation on "Befriending the Unknown and Embracing Uncertainty: Multi-Faith Perspectives"
 

Sunday, March 5, 7:00 - 9:30 p.m.,

Since the election, many of us have been in a state of heightened anxiety. So much is unknown and fear is a common response to uncertainty. We humans love to “know” and be able to predict what is going to happen next; in fact, our brains are wired to “fill in the blanks" even if it means filling them in with our most dreaded fears and catastrophic expectations. But there is another possible response—one that draws on the spiritual wisdom and practices of our respective faith traditions.  This gathering will provide an opportunity to explore spiritual wisdom teachings to help us deepen in faith and find the necessary courage and resilience to thrive during these uncertain and unpredictable times.
