SAND Community Gathering with Matthew Fox
May 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT
A lot is happening in our world as the pandemic spreads across our lives on a planetary scale. As we are cocooning in our homes, we would like to invite you to join us for a community get-together every Saturday, where we can connect, reflect, meditate, nourish one another with our presence and create a field of resilience and mutual support. Each week we will have a different guest teacher who will bring their perspective and wisdom on the situation and help us connect and ground as a community. Let’s remember that every crisis holds the seeds of birthing of new perspectives and new ways of being.
This coming Saturday we are delighted to have Rev. Matthew Fox as a guest teacher. Rev. Matthew Fox is an author, theologian, and activist priest. He has ignited an international movement which awakens people to be mystics, prophets and contemplative activists who honor and defend the earth and work for justice. He seeks to establish a new pedagogy for learning a grounded spirituality 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. In this community gathering, Mathew Fox will be sharing some of the wisdom for hard times from the Christian contemplative mystics, and we will have time for a conversation with him.
