Dear Friend of Creation Spirituality


What astounding and historic days we are living through…times to foster both hope and heartbreak. We are witnessing a new regime in the Vatican speaking up for justice and compassion for all the people and for the planet…we are witnessing global grassroots movements for peace, justice, and environmental protection…and we are witnessing the growing recognition of a science that recognizes consciousness at all levels of life.

Meanwhile, the escalating assaults on the global environment and local ecosystems, rampant corporate greed, and corruption in government challenge each and all of us to renew our efforts as mystic-warriors, prophets, and healers for the planet and the people. The World Bank has warned that the planet is on an “unavoidable course to warming” and the World Wildlife Federation has announced that 50% of this planet’s species have been lost in the past 40 years. The Indigenous elders and medicine people have warned us: the consequences of our culture’s choices are now catching up with us.

We must act, if life on Earth is to survive.

In the face of all of this, you may ask – where to begin? How to keep hope alive? How to hold on to the beauty of the earth in the face of desecration, and create in the face of massive destruction? How to avoid burnout when activists around the world are being silenced?

These are questions that Matthew Fox and the Friends of Creation Spirituality confront every day … and offer expert knowledge and practical tools for you to use on your own journey:

  • through expert commentary on the news of the Vatican, and the ongoing need to bear witness for environmental and social justice…
  • through visionary workshops on practical mysticism and prophetic action to create positive change in our world…
  • through inspiring collaboration with global thought-leaders including Rupert Sheldrake, David Korten, Andrew Harvey, Adam Bucko, and more in advancing the “four E’s” – a new Economics that works for everyone; wisdom-based Education; deep Ecumenism; and deep Ecology…
  • through continuing to push the leading edge of post-modern worship in Oakland’s Cosmic Mass – an interspiritual celebration that incorporates cosmology, ritual, immersive visual art, music, spoken word and the practice of dance for participants of all spiritual traditions to engage body and spirit directly….
  • through the Youth and Elders Learning Laboratory for Wisdom Education (YELLAWE), a visionary pedagogy that has been changing students’ lives in the Oakland Public Schools since 2006, inspiring similar programs in Chicago and New York…
And all of this is only part of the growing work and vision that Matthew Fox and FCS offer to the world!

Whether you have followed Matthew Fox through his (r)evolutionary career, or whether you have only just discovered him through his lectures or books, you have likely come away from the experience inspired…

…with the awareness that each of us is a mystic capable of connecting with the Divinity in creation, the faces of the Cosmic Christ in every being around us…

…with the faith that out of the depths of this dark night of the soul…and the culture…can arise strength, wisdom and compassion we didn’t know we were capable of achieving….

…with the challenge to embrace our full potential as a visionary creator and prophet capable of creating positive change in our culture and our world…

The impact of these messages on our culture has been profound!

Innumerable progressive spiritual authors, ministers, healers, and thought-leaders today have drawn their inspiration from the work of Matthew Fox. And today we are witnessing the blossoming of Creation Spirituality teachings in a new generation of leaders…

… through the work of Nicole Porcaro and Skylar Wilson, supporting a community of volunteers to rebirth the Cosmic Mass..

… through the work of Ambessa Cantave, Broderick Rodell. Theodore Richards and Adam Bucko, helping inner-city youth to discover their inner wisdom and purpose in life

… through the work of the Creation Spirituality Communities, encouraging the birth of new CS circles and celebrations around the world…

This is the work that continues to change the culture…to awaken the spiritually asleep…and to open the doors to acceptance of our planetary home as sacred.
