Creation Spirituality is the idea that divinity permeates all things, and all things have the imprint of divinity, yet the sum of all things does not fully encompass the mystery of the divine.
Matthew Fox states, “as a movement, Creation Spirituality becomes an amazing gathering place, a kind of watering hole for persons whose passion has been touched by the issues of our day – deep ecologists, ecumenists, artists, native peoples, justice activists, feminists, male liberationists, gay and lesbian peoples, animal liberationists, scientists seeking to reconnect science and wisdom, people of prophetic faith traditions – all these find in the Creation Spirituality movement a common language and a common ground on which to stand.”
Often called a spirituality of earth and cosmos CS views creation as primary revelation that is perpetually emerging. Fox asserts that this creation-centered consciousness can be sought and found in the oldest traditions of the Hebrew Bible and especially in the reflections of medieval Christian mystics such as Meister Eckhart (c. 1260–1327) Hildegard of Bingen (1098–1179) Julian of Norwich (1342–c. 1415) and Mechtild of Magdeburg (1210–1280).
Matthew Fox is an American priest and theologian. Formerly a member of the Dominican Order within the Catholic Church he became a member of the Episcopal Church following his expulsion from the order in 1993.Fox has written 35 books that have been translated into 68 languages.
