Please join us and special guest Reverend Matthew Fox for an illuminating evening talk.
Catholic monk Thomas Merton was a deep contemplative who reached many aspiring souls through his profound and artful writings. On being introduced by Dr Suzuki to Meister Eckhart in a deep way in 1958, Merton encountered Creation Spirituality and became a prophetic Christian the last ten years of his life, leading the way in pioneering Deep Ecumenism with writings on Zen, Sufism, Native American spiritualities and more. An early champion of the ecological movement and the women's movement, he took on fundamentalist religion and the Vietnam War and technology that ignores the spiritual needs of humanity.
Reverend Matthew Fox knew Thomas Merton and during their correspondence, Merton advised Matt to attend the Institut catholique in Paris where he first learned of Creation Spirituality from the prophetic French Dominican scholar, M. D. Chenu.
