Matthew Fox might well be the most creative, most comprehensive, surely the most challenging religious-spiritual teacher in America. Occupy Spirituality, his latest book, is a powerful, inspiring, and vital call to embodied awareness and enlightened actions. ‘Spiritual democracy,’ as it is called in this book, is vital if we are to co-create a world where all beings thrive together. Matthew Fox began the Creation Spirituality movement, which is based in ancient Judeo-Christian tradition, supported by leading-edge science, bears witness for social, environmental, and gender justice, and is flourishing in the creative and prophetic spirit of our times. Matthew Fox is an American Episcopal priest and theologian, formerly a member of the Dominican Order within the Roman Catholic Church, he is now a member of the Episcopal Church.
