Mark Your Calendar for Matthew Fox's Events and New Releases!
Calling all Lovers of Creation, Social and Environmental Activists,
Mystic Explorers, Sacred Earth Keepers…
On Mother’s Day, May 12, 2019, in honor of Gaia, our wounded Mother Earth, Matthew Fox and a dedicated team of helpers launched a series of Free Daily Meditations to support your inner and outer work, your contemplation and your action, and your mystical and prophetic vocations. We are naming this project:
Some of the meditations will be brand new and some will be drawn from past writings. Suggested practices and short videos will be offered at times as well. You are welcome to comment or interact with other subscribers along the way. Building on our Mother’s Day launch, the first few weeks of our meditations focus first on the return of the Divine Feminine; and then the ushering in of the Sacred Masculine—these themes lie at the heart of the eco-disasters we are facing as a species.

Healing Journeys with the Black Madonna
Matthew Fox joins Alessandra Belloni in a shared presentation on the Black Madonna’s healing presence in our time.
Creation Spirituality Communities leaders John Robinson, Penny Andrews, and Gail Ransom host Matthew Fox in “The Long Arc of Life” on their “Elder Innerview series:
A Call to Humanity for the Sake
of Life on Earth
In 2015, Pope Francis released his encyclical, LAUDATO SI’: ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME, calling all people of all nations and creeds to radical and unified environmental, social, and cultural change to protect the possibility of life on Earth.
Shortly afterward, Matthew Fox responded, linking LAUDATO SI’ to the longstanding Creation Spirituality tradition and adding further questions and challenges addressing the looming dangers of these times.
As these dangers grow increasingly dire, Matthew Fox invites you, personally, to download these two documents at right and gather with friends, civic and spiritual groups, and family to explore their questions and take bold and inspired action, whether in partnership with the Order of the Sacred Earth or with a group of your choice.
The time to act to protect our Mother is now.

Matthew Fox's articles are published in a wide range of publications, and he blogs on Progressive Christianity, Tikkun, Huffington Post, and occasionally other platforms. See some of his articles and posts below, and here.
The Cosmic Mass Returns to the World Parliament of religions
(Excerpted from Matthew Fox’s article in the Interfaith Observer)
I have been involved in celebrating Cosmic Masses throughout North America for the last 24 years. We have sponsored more than 100 of them in various cities and have people to lead them around the country.
In April, 2019, we celebrated shared joy, grief, & creativity in service to the sustainability of Planet & Peoples through a Cosmic Mass (TCM) titled “Our Sacred Earth” in San Antonio (see video at right).
In February 2018, a Cosmic Mass was offered at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., with the theme of “Healing Racism” (see photo gallery at right). The Cosmic Mass was a featured element of the 2018 World Parliament of Religions in Toronto. In 2016, we sponsored a Cosmic Mass at the World Parliament of Religions in Salt Lake City.
The Cosmic Mass is a conscious effort to create post-modern worship where we move from praying from the neck up to praying with all the chakras, particularly the lower ones. We dance more than we sit, and we meditate both in silence and in motion with the help of visuals provided by a VJ and music provided by a DJ and often live musicians as well. (Read more…)
In the Voices of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit, the Planet Cries Out for Defenders...
In the midst of global fire, earthquake and flood - as species are going extinct every day and the shadow of nuclear war looms - the planet doesn't need another church or religion.
What it needs is a new Order:...a sacred community and movement:
...A movement of communities welcoming all the peoples of Earth: our varied belief systems (or non-belief systems), genders, races, classes, abilities, and nations.
...A deeply spiritual movement, free of religious institutions and grounded in the Wisdom traditions of both East and West, in leading-edge science and indigenous tradition.
...A radically inclusive Order of mystic activists, uniting our energy and intention in one sacred vow:
“I promise to be the best lover and defender of the Earth that I can be.”
This is the focus of Matthew Fox's latest book and initiative, in collaboration with co-author/co-founders Skylar Wilson and Jenifer Listug. Learn more about it. See upcoming OSE events in the calendar above, and learn more about how you can participate in and support the Order at OrderOfTheSacredEarth.org

Hear Matthew Fox, Skylar Wilson & Jennifer Berit Listug being interviewed by host Monique Chapman on her podcast “Get Over It!!” which aired on BlogtalkRadio on Oct. 24. and is syndicated on over 400 podcast networks.
From Book to Traveling Exhibition
This inspired series of images capturing the ancient teachings of the Cosmic Christ was celebrated in a book by Matthew Fox and Bishop Marc Andrus in 2016, released in meditation cards in 2018, and continues to be exhibited in churches and spiritual centers upon invitation.
Imagine the stations at your site!
From the first conception of this project, we have held the vision that the Stations of the Cosmic Christ would make their way to every church, chapel, and retreat center, expanding the understanding of the faith community from the sufferings of Jesus to the full, rich, complexity of his life, message, and cosmic presence.
There was just one challenge to that vision: the 16 Stations created by artists M. C. Richards and Ullrrich Javier Lemus are 3-dimensional clay tablets...beautiful, original, but also fragile and difficult to transport . Since their unveiling in April 2016, the Stations have been exhibited at a number of sites in California and are slated to be shown in more over the coming year, but long distance travel remained a challenge....
...Until today, with the creation of beautiful, high-quality replicas: your Church or Retreat Center or Chapel can now post your own 16 Stations of the Cosmic Christ for a very modest investment! To learn how, click here.

"(Matthew Fox's) creation spirituality is the spirituality of the future, and his theology of the Cosmic Christ is the theology of the future…"
~~ Bede Griffiths, OSB
Matthew Fox holds a doctorate in spirituality from the Institut Catholique de Paris and has authored 32 books on spirituality and contemporary culture that have been translated into 60 languages. Fox has devoted 45 years to developing and teaching the tradition of Creation Spirituality and in doing so has reinvented forms of education and worship. His work is inclusive of today’s science and world spiritual traditions and has awakened millions to the much neglected earth-based mystical tradition of the West. Among his books are Original Blessing, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, The Reinvention of Work, A Spirituality Named Compassion and Meister Eckhart: A Mystic-Warrior for Our Times.
Fox founded the University of Creation Spirituality in Oakland, California in 1996 where where he was President and professor until 2005. He speaks regularly at professional and community gatherings around the world, and has led a renewal of liturgical forms with "The Cosmic Mass," which mixes dance, techno and live music, DJ, VJ, rap and contemporary art forms with the Western liturgical tradition. He is a recipient of the Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience Award; other recipients have included the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa and Rosa Parks. A visiting scholar at the Academy for the Love of Learning in Santa Fe, NM, and elsewhere, he resides in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
The growth in glory is a growth in becoming the image of God, which Christ has already achieved in its fullest dime… https://t.co/jlQCEbCVLx
