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 39 books, lectures, retreats and innovative education models have ignited a movement to awaken people to 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, as well as interacting with contemporary scientists who are also mystics, Fox founded the University of Creation Spirituality. Fox is recipient of the Abbey Courage of Conscience Peace Award, the Ghandi King Ikeda Award and the Tikkun National Ethics Award, among others. His most recent book is Matthew Fox: Essential Writings on Creation Spirituality.
