The Future of Religion, Spirituality, and Earth: A Day with Matthew Fox

“It is precisely the despair of our times that convinces me that a new renaissance is right around the corner.”

- Matthew Fox

Registration for this day is closed. Matthew Fox will repeat this presentation on Sunday.  There is availability on Sunday. The retreat will be 10:30am-4:00pm.  Please consider registering for Sunday.

If you have previously registered for Saturday and are on the waiting list, you will be contacted if a space opens up for you.

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.
