Rev Dr Matthew Fox Lecture: Occupy Spirituality & the Future of the Planet, Christianity, and Community
We are currently feeling the need for a spirituality that no longer hides our contemplatives in comfortable monasteries, but instead recognizes that we are all called to be mystics and prophets at once. This new spirituality integrates contemplation with activism and prophetic witness on behalf of justice and compassion, deals with the transformation of the whole-person, integrates spiritual practices from various traditions and emphasizes the need for intergenerational collaboration and wisdom. Join Matthew Fox, renowned theologian, activist and visionary, for this inspiring lecture on exploring the directions the earth is asking us to embark on today; based on a new book, Occupy Spirituality, from the inter-generational duo of Matthew and spiritual activist Adam Bucko. We will explore intergenerational wisdom, activism as a form of contemplation, vocation as a spiritual practice. We will use inspiration from our mystical ancestors still eager to share with us including Eckhart, Hildegard, Dorothy Day, Howard Thurman and courageous voices from today's Occupy Generation.
