Matthew Fox: Bowing to the Heart Over Authority

Matthew Fox: Bowing to the Heart Over Authority

Sep 8, 2022-- "And so creativity should be at the heart of all ritual; not a frozen form, but a flexible form. Dance is at the heart of our prayer. We do circle dancing. We dance to DJ music and live music. And we also do spiral dancing. Getting the body involved is so important. You don't have a Hindu body or an atheist body or a Buddhist body. You have a body. We're all human there, so we can all dance together and look each other in the eyes. We use a video jockey (VJ) to tell the theme that we're honoring in images. We've done a Mass of the African diaspora, for example, several times where we tell the story of the African-Americans in America. It began with a ria positiva dance honoring the stories of the great African-American heroes and sheroes that we know about. And then we go into the via negativa, into the grief, into the middle passage, into slavery. And we're led through the blues, if you will, of the black experience." Matthew Fox is a pioneering spiritual theologian, author whose courageous stance on issues like the sacredness of our relationship to the environment, the divine feminine, gay rights, and other controversial issues have helped spark a spiritual revolution. He shares more in the following interview on "Fidelity vs Faith: Bowing to the Heart Over Authority." (1957 reads)
