Transforming the world, Transforming the Self: Art and Spirit, Music and Spirit
From the interview...
"..like Thomas Aquinas says 'the same spirit that hovered over the creation of the waters at the beginning of creation hovers over the mind of the artist at work.'
Meister Eckhart says everything that happened in the past and everything that’s going to happen in the future is happening now in the depths of the human soul. And today’s physics really supports that.
You know, we're living in a universe of incredible creativity, and so of course humans stepping into our creativity is why we're here."

CREATION SPIRITUALITY: REAWAKENING MYSTICISM, PROTECTING MOTHER EARTH
Born in the wonderment of our earliest human ancestors,
rooted in ancient Judeo-Christian tradition,
supported by leading-edge science,
bearing witness for social, environmental, and gender justice,
and voiced most powerfully for this generation
by spiritual theologian Matthew Fox
Rev. Matthew Fox, PhD, author, theologian, and activist priest, has been calling people of spirit and conscience into the Creation Spirituality lineage for over 50 years. His 37 books, lectures, retreats, and innovative education models have ignited an international movement to awaken people to be mystics and prophets, contemplative activists, who honor and defend the earth and work for justice. Seeking to establish a new pedagogy for learning spirituality that was grounded in an effort to reawaken the West to its own mystical traditions in such figures as Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart and the mysticism of Thomas Aquinas, as well as interacting with contemporary scientists who are also mystics, Fox founded the University of Creation Spirituality. His recent projects include Order of the Sacred Earth, Daily Meditations with Matthew Fox, and a Certificate Program in Leadership and the Creation Spirituality Tradition. His most recent book is The Tao of Thomas Aquinas: Fierce Wisdom for Hard Times. www.matthewfox.org.
