Matthew Fox


Event Details


In this inspiring evening, bestselling author Matthew Fox will introduce key aspects of Thomas Merton’s teachings on marrying contemplation, action, and critical thinking about culture and religion. Though Merton died prematurely in 1968 at the young age of 53, the pioneering ideas that Trappist monk and justice activist he shared are still very much alive. Fox will also explain how the vision of thirteenth century mystic Meister Eckhart profoundly influenced both Merton and Creation Spirituality, which Fox has long espoused and written about. Presented by Point Reyes Books and Black Mountain Circle.

About Matthew Fox: Matthew Fox is the author of more than 30 books including Meister Eckhart, The Hidden Spirituality of Men, Christian Mystics, and most recently A Way to God. A preeminent scholar and popularizer of Western mysticism, he became an Episcopal priest after being expelled from the Dominican Order by Cardinal Ratzinger, who later became Pope Benedict XVI.
