Hildegard of Bingen is one of many mystics devoted to these issues. We will include her, Mary Oliver, Teilhard de Chardin, Albert Einstein, and others.

Hear Matthew Fox being interviewed by Namaste Radio

Matthew Fox: Matthew Fox is the popular and controversial theologian and author of 30 books, translated into 48 languages, that recover the mystical tradition of Christianity. His Original Blessing was a landmark in understanding this tradition. Fox's books also emphasize social, ecological, and gender justice. He is founder and director of the Institute of Culture and Creation Spirituality in Oakland, CA.

A member of the Dominican Order for 34 years, Fox was silenced by the Vatican in 1989 and formally dismissed in 1993. Now an Episcopal minister, he travels extensively, sharing his radical vision of a Christianity that leans toward mysticism rather than orthodoxy, Divine Feminism rather than patriarchy.

The late scientist and mystic Teilhard de Chardin commented that the Cosmic Christ represents the third nature of Christ that few seem interested in. But today, with the ecological peril facing the earth, with religious wars heating up and deep ecumenism more needed than ever, with humanity out of kilter with too much patriarchy and too little of the Divine Feminine, we need to bring alive the Cosmic Christ, the wisdom and nature-based mystical traditions, the re-uniting of cosmology, science and spirituality and the Sacred marriage of the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine. Hildegard of Bingen is one of many mystics devoted to these issues and we will include her, Mary Oliver, Teilhard de Chardin, Albert Einstein, and others. We will also engage in practices such as the new “Stations of the Cosmic Christ” that Matthew Fox and Bishop Marc Andrus are developing out of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

Drawing from Fox's latest book:

ORDER THE BOOK

For the almost 1.2 billion Catholics around the world–310 million of them in the US alone–October, 2012 will mark the historic canonization and declaration as Doctor of the Church of 12th century Benedictine nun Hildegard of Bingen by Pope Benedict XVI. She will be only the fourth woman to have this honor bestowed on her.

In an era when women were marginalized, Hildegard was an outspoken, controversial figure who exemplified the divine feminine, sought justice for the poor, and demonstrated a passion for the earth and its creatures, emphasizing the oneness of reality. Yet so visionary was her insight, she was sought out by kings, popes, abbots, and bishops for advice.

Today, along with being honored and celebrated through many websites and Hildegard groups for her teachings, philosophy, art, and music, Hildegard is being recognized for her immense contribution to our understanding of our spiritual relationship to nature–a contribution that touches head-on key issues faced by our planet in the 21st century, particularly with regard to the environment and ecology.
