“Matthew Fox might well be the most creative, the most comprehensive, surely the most challenging religious spiritual teacher in America.” — Thomas Berry
Much of what passes for masculinity in our culture and religion is anything but sacred. It is toxic, and this toxicity affects not only men but also women in their roles as mothers, sisters, spouses, and human beings. The Goddess has been returning to Western consciousness for decades through the women’s movement, feminist scholarship, and rediscoveries of the Sacred Feminine; now it’s time to resurrect the Sacred Masculine as well, so that the Goddess may have a proper consort. The survival of our species requires this healthier balance between yin and yang, between the feminine and masculine energies that live within each of us.
Join renowned spiritual teacher Matthew Fox for this powerful workshop and explore ancient archetypes, including Father Sky, the Green Man, the Spiritual Warrior, the Blue Man, the Hunter-Gatherer, the Earth Father, Grandfather Sky, and more.
