Workshop: The Future of Religion, Spirituality, and Earth - Racine, WI

Many people today identify as spiritual but not religious. Does this dynamic represent a quest for the deeper elements of religion, the “inwardness” of religion that the mystics like Howard Thurman, Dorothee Soelle, and Meister Eckhart talk about? Are we experiencing a re-sacralizing of our relationships?
Join renowned spiritual theologian Matthew Fox as he explores these questions whose answers loom as primary prerequisites for our survival as a species and for our planet at this amazing but perilous time in human and planetary history.

Webinar: Awaken Modern Mystics & Prophets- Online

Dear Friend,

Would you like to tap into the wisdom and power of the great mystics and prophets...

… to more easily bridge the distance between you and the sacred within and around you?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if these wise souls could serve as profound mentors, offering inspiration and solace as you navigate your own spiritual journey… 

… and helping you shift your mind, open your heart, and inspire change in the world, while also creating an unshakeable connection to the Divine?

On Thursday, August 22, I will introduce you to four of the most beloved mystics for our time in a free online event, Awaken Modern Mystics & Prophets.

You can register here:

These brave catalysts for profound change — Meister Eckhart, Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Merton, and Mary Oliver — perfectly embody the archetypes of the mystic and prophet, lover and warrior…

… and with my guidance, you’ll discover the profound teachings that their lives can offer you on your own path.

In this extraordinary hour you’ll discover:

  • How to open to the mystic in you — a lover charged by the glory of things and deeply touched by wonder at existence itself

  • A prophet as a warrior, and how to draw from this energy the courage to stand up for what you love

  • How the archetype of the Divine is undergoing an awakening, and how it can connect you with the qualities of its many “names,” including Love; Goodness; Flow; Energy; Breath; Cause of Wonder; Life; Joy; the Self of the Universe

  • An ancient healing chant that invokes names for the Divine from around the world to bring you closer to the sacred within and around you

In order to navigate the separation and challenges we’re facing today — in ourselves, in humanity, and on the planet — looking to the great mystics and prophets of the past for guidance and wisdom may be one of the most effective practices we can engage in.

So mark your calendar — and join me to explore how to bring more love, peace, compassion, courage, and joy into your life and the lives of others.

You can RSVP for free here:


Matthew Fox

P.S. Join me and “meet” four people who fell so deeply in love with creation and existence that they fought fiercely to awaken others to this same capacity for love. 

You’ll also be one of the first to hear about a brand new 7-week online training with me that will take you much deeper into an exploration of the lives of mystics and prophets Meister Eckhart, Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Merton, and Mary Oliver… 

Register now (and even if you can’t attend live, you’ll receive a downloadable replay later):

Matthew Fox offers the keynote lecture on “Youth Leadership and Order of the Sacred Earth and Other Ways Earth is Speaking to us Today” at the Annual Convention of the General Convention of Swedenborgian Churches.

In her struggle to survive Mother Earth is busy at work awakening the young to new kinds of leadership–consider the role of Greta Thunberg for example and many more.  Consider too the launching of the Order of the Sacred Earth, called an “intergenerational vision for love and action.”  What is the role of elders and the youth at this critical time of Earth and Human history?  What other awakenings are knocking at our hearts and minds as we struggle with climate change and the shadows of denial and despair that seek to distract us from our work for justice and compassion for future generations?

Course: Eckhart @ Erfurt - Erfurt, Germany


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

Meister Eckhart may well be the most significant mystic-prophet of the West.  His influence has been vast, including Karl Marx and Martin Buber, Carl Jung and Thomas Merton, John of the Cross and 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.

Our studies 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 meditation, 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!!!

Yoga for Peace Symposium: Activating a Global Shift - Nassau, Bahamas

Join Spiritual activists engaged in great movements of peace in the world - Matthew Fox, Alastair McIntosh, Pat McCabe, Philip M. Hellmich, and Swami Brahmananda - at the 12th Annual Yoga for Peace Symposium, “Activating a Global Shift,” at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat, in Nassau, Bahamas

How do we awaken and nurture the seeds of peace and social justice in the world?

In 1969, Swami Vishnudevananda had a vision here at the ashram that catalyzed his focus on peace through yoga for the rest of his life. An activist, an educator, and a visionary, he brought together people from all religions and mystical traditions to share and exchange and he trained yoga teachers, planting seeds of peace for them to bring into the world.

In these tumultuous times, we are honored to welcome four spiritual activists engaged in great movements of peace in the world, each deeply embodying their spirituality and impacting the world in important ways. They will inspire and guide us, and share what they’ve learned over the years and around the world working within themselves and on the ground to create peace.

Now is the time to tend to the seeds of peace within ourselves and each other.

Forum: Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home - Berkeley, CA

Join the Sierra Club East Bay for an inspiring, co-creative dinner program, sharing and exploring a common vision and action plan based on Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si. Matthew Fox, Guy McPherson, Dr. Sailesh Rao, Melissa Koch, and Jamen Shively are guest speakers.

April 25, 2019 (Thu) 7:00pm-9:00pm

Berkeley Yacht Club, 1 Seawall Dr, Berkeley, CA 94710, USA

Who are we? Why are we here? Mother Earth is in such a multi-dimensional tailspin that no matter our individual beliefs, it is clear that we are all being called upon to join together to find solutions.

Answering that call, joining with established environmental organizations such as the Sierra Club, a number of newer organizations such as Extinction Rebellion and Green New Deal are promoting solutions that address greenhouse gas emissions and a range of social and environmental issues. While fully supporting those, our gut tells us that an even more radical set of solutions is needed, spanning the ecological, social and cultural, economic and living arrangements, political/governance, and spiritual dimensions, among many others.

Enter Pope Francis. In 2015, he published the radical encyclical Laudato Si: On Care for our Common Home, exploring the roots of our most daunting problems, and painting a beautiful picture of what our world can become, once we implement the bold cultural revolution he calls for. At the root, Pope Francis is calling on all peoples, from all faiths, backgrounds and beliefs, to come together and co-create the necessary solutions.

Join us for an inspiring, co-creative evening of sharing and exploring a common vision and action plan, leading to the Pope’s vision: the healing and saving of life on Earth. Speakers and facilitators include, in order:

  • Matthew Fox, Order of the Sacred Earth

  • Guy McPherson, Prof. Emeritus University of Arizona

  • Dr. Sailesh Rao, Vegan World 2026

  • Melissa Koch, artful activist, representing the honey bees, the orca whales, and all other non-human species

  • Jamen Shively, radical collective intelligence, arcology, and geo-shading

Together, we will start off with an hour of presentations centered around the Laudato Si and various radical solutions, led by Matthew Fox. Following that, after a brief intermission, we will enjoy some very brief introductions to specific movements and solutions, to complete an initial panorama of the breadth of the holistic set of solutions needed. Finally, all are invited to stay for a two hour post-presentation discussion, wherein all participants are invited to share openly on all topics.

Cost: Cost of dinner and program is $30, including tax and tip. $10 for program only, starting at 8 PM.

To sign up:

Attendance is limited to the first 115 reservations received. Reserve early, as these programs do fill up. Reservation deadline is April 18.

Additional Directions: No-host cocktails/social hour at 6:00 PM, dinner at 7:00 PM, program at 8:00 PM, After-hours group discussion 9:15 -11:00 PM. Ample free parking is available in the Marina parking lots; Bus #81 service to Marina from Ashby BART)
