In this revolutionary work, Matthew Fox shows how Christianity once celebrated beauty, compassion, justice, and provided a path of positive knowledge and ecstatic connection with all creation. Named one of the “20 books that changed the world” in New Age Journal’s Annual Source Book for 1995, Fox provides a daring view of historical Christianity and a theologically sound basis for personal discovery of spiritual liberation. We will explore and discuss some of the rich teachings and ideas in Original Blessing.


“Original Blessing makes available to the Christian World and to the human community a radical cure for all dark and derogatory views of the natural world, wherever these many have originated.  It offers a remedy for the deep personal and cultural pathologies that have afflicted our western tradition over the centuries and which have led us to assault the naturel world in such a disastrous manner. …The author of this work has brought propound joy into the lives of us all.” – Thomas Berry

The most influential psychospiritual book of the decade”-- Common Boundary Magazine

 “For me, creation spirituality as Matthew Fox talks about it is like the Dreamtime in the way that it brings the entire cosmos into our lives making it a part of us and us a part of it.”  --Eddie Kneebone, Aboriginal teacher and activist

About the leader(s)

Matthew Fox

 Rev. Fox, is an author, theologian, and activist priest. He has been calling people of spirit and conscience into the Creation Spirituality lineage for over 50 years. His 39 books, lectures, retreats, and innovative education models have ignited an international movement to awaken people to be mystics, prophets, contemplative activists, who honor and defend the earth and work for justice. Matthew today is an Episcopal priest after having been expelled from the Dominican Order, to which he belonged for 34 years, by Cardinal Ratzinger for 1) being "a feminist theologian" and 2) "calling God 'Mother'" and 3) "working too closely with Native Americans."  He tries his best to wear these badges of honor with humility.
