Renowned Activist in ‘Eco-Spirituality’, Matthew Fox to Lead Retreat at La Casa de Maria August 1st-3rd

La Casa de Maria, an interfaith retreat and conference center located in Santa Barbara, is featuring “Our Emergence into Christ Consciousness” with Matthew Fox, PhD., internationally acclaimed spiritual theologian, Episcopal priest, and activist.

The highly-anticipated retreat will take place August 1st-3rd in Santa Barbara. Focusing on the presence of the Christ Consciousness that is continually incarnated in all of creation, Matthew Fox will discuss his ideas surrounding the Creation Spiritualty Movement.

With the notion that we move through this time of great peril to our planet, awakening to a dynamic and viable Christ Consciousness can provide for us deep wisdom and calling with which we can incarnate into our ways of living and being.

“We are delighted to welcome Matthew Fox as one of the country’s most well-respected speakers in his field of expertise and as one of the great spiritual minds of his generation” said Juliet-Spohn-Twomey, Associate Director of La Casa de Maria. “We are excited and honored to provide the Santa Barbara Community with speakers on issues around faith, the environment and social justice that are imperative for our time.”

La Casa de Maria hosts a wide variety of community groups and organizations focusing on spiritual, educational, community building, peace, social and economic justice, at-risk youth, and the environment.

The nonprofit organization also sponsors its own programs, focusing on spiritual renewal, personal growth, education, health and healing, arts and civic renewal.
