And discover a more peaceful and just approach to living and interacting to create a healthier world.

Why Attend “Explore Compassion in Spirituality With Meister Eckhart’s Wisdom”

Explore Compassion in Spirituality With Meister Eckhart’s WisdomIn a time of global turmoil, the rise of authoritarianism, and the destruction of Mother Earth, cultivating compassion may also be our saving grace.

During this free online spiritual workshop, Matthew will explores the mystical teachings of Meister Eckhart.

Matthew will focus on why cultivating and nurturing our compassionate selves is the greatest Divine call of our time…

Our initiation into a new way of being and interacting in our world and the healing elixir for our individual and collective wounds.

In this uplifting workshop, you’ll:

  • Explore 13th-century theologian and mystic Meister Eckhart’s idea that “compassion begins at home” — beginning with how you embody compassion within you and extend it with love to your community
  • Be immersed in 3 experiential exercises on compassion: The Indigenous story of the two wolves, meditate on Hildegard’s painting of “The Man in Sapphire Blue” and practice with your hands the archetype of compassion that she paints
  • Be guided in a breathing exercise by Thich Nhat Hanh to embody the present moment
  • Learn why compassion is vital to our survival as a species and as individuals — and why it takes more strength to be compassionate
  • Explore the synergy of compassion and justice — and why true compassion includes responding to moral outrage or anger in positive and effective ways
  • Discover forgiveness and letting go as an act of self-compassion — and why it’s not altruistic but rather helping yourself by freeing yourself of past hurts and mistakes
  • Experience presence as a precursor for being a spiritual warrior — and your ability to live in the present without worrying about the future (fear) or the past (regret)

As one of the foremost mystical scholars of our time, Matthew’s depth of knowledge is suffused with an acute awareness and sensitivity toward our timeless human struggles — and the unique possibilities that are still available to us.

Matthew will share how science and spirituality both support the idea of compassion as an uplifting and renewing tool for society as well as Self.

About Your Teacher – Matthew Fox

Matthew Fox is a prolific author of books dedicated to renewing the ancient tradition of Creation Spirituality, including Original Blessing… A Spirituality Named Compassion… and Christian Mystics. This earth-based mystical tradition is feminist, welcoming of the arts and artists, honors Indigenous wisdom, works with science, and is committed to interfaith approaches and eco, social, and gender justice.

Matthew’s effort to reawaken the West to its own mystical tradition has sparked awareness of Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, and the mysticism of Thomas Aquinas, as well as the wisdom tradition that nurtured Jesus. Matthew’s work helps reconnect science and spirituality by honoring the sacredness of the Cosmos, and interacting with contemporary scientists who are also mystics. He believes that “by reinventing work, education, and worship, we can bring about a nonviolent revolution on our planet.”

Matthew received his doctorate summa cum laude in the history and theology of spiritualities from the Institut Catholique de Paris. A member of the Dominican Order for 34 years, he established an Institute in Culture and Creation Spirituality that operated for seven years at Mundelein College in Chicago, and for 12 years at Holy Names University in Oakland.

He founded the University of Creation Spirituality in Oakland in 1996 and was president and professor until 2005 when he left to create a pilot project to reinvent the educational experience for inner-city teenagers.

Matthew is a recipient of many awards, including the Gandhi King Ikeda Award from Morehouse College, which is awarded for dedication to peace, unity, nonviolence, and justice. He also received the Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience Award — other recipients have included the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks. He is currently a visiting scholar at the Academy for the Love of Learning in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
