Common Dreams 2019

The fifth Common Dreams conference will be held on 11 – 14 July at Newington College in Stanmore, Sydney.  Matthew Fox has been booked as the distinguished international keynote speaker. Matthew is a well-known writer & inspired speaker with at least 30 books to his credit. Formerly a member of the Dominican Order within the Roman Catholic Church, he incurred the ire of the then Cardinal Ratzinger which led to his eventual expulsion from the Catholic Church after which he became a member of the Episcopal Church. Fox was an early and influential exponent of a movement that came to be known as Creation Spirituality. The movement draws inspiration from (though diverges doctrinally from) the mystical philosophies of such medieval Catholic visionaries as Hildegard of BingenThomas AquinasSaint Francis of AssisiJulian of NorwichDante AlighieriMeister Eckhart and Nicholas of Cusa, as well as the wisdom traditions of Christian scriptures. Creation Spirituality is also strongly aligned with ecological and environmental movements of the late 20th century and embraces numerous spiritual traditions around the world, including BuddhismJudaismSufism, and Native American spirituality, with a focus on "deep ecumenism".

 

Make a note in your diary & plan to attend what will prove to be another exciting & stimulating gathering of progressives featuring leading international, Australian, & New Zealand speakers & workshop leaders.
