Conference: Creation Spirituality Communities Biennial Gathering - Asheville NC

Matthew Fox keynotes at the Creation Spirituality Communities International Gathering:  a weekend of inspiration, growth, and celebration of  our sacred work on our sacred earth. Whether you are an activist, a poet, a practitioner, a mystic, or a scientist….. If you are seeking to connect your purpose and pursuits to the spirituality of creation, this gathering is for you.

IT'S YOUR SACRED WORK! 

Special opportunities for you to share and collaborate!

During the SACRED EARTH-SACRED WORK Gathering, we are not just musing on a concept, we are talking about real sacred work, your sacred work - what you do every day. We created the gathering as a way to highlight how you connect with the sacredness of our planet.  

This gathering was created to discover, support, and connect your work to the work of others - and to experience how what you do is appreciated and inspiring to others.

Come to the gathering - and bring your work with you!

Activists ~  Managers ~ Teachers  

 Dream Workers ~ Conservationists  ~ Social Workers

Ministers  ~ Contemplatives ~  Business Owners  

Practitioners  ~  Spiritual Companions

We will be hosting Affinity Circles Sunday morning. Affinity Circle topics are proposed during the gathering, so that people with similar sacred work can share, collaborate, support and inspire each other.

 If you would like to be the point person for a session, please let us know. Just send us an email.

Poets, give us your insights! 

         Authors, talk about your process! 

             Artists, unveil your inner visions!

Time and space is set aside during the gathering for Cohort Circles - where poets, musicians, artists and authors can meet together, set up an interactive display table with examples to share and products to sell.

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.
