In 1988, rather than comply with an ecclesiastical summons issued by then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, to move to Chicago and give up his work on Creation Spirituality in Oakland California, Matthew Fox, a Dominican Priest, left the Dominican Order, remained in Oakland, and established the University of Creation Spirituality.   Matthew Fox is the author of 28 books and most recently published “The Hidden Spirituality of Men:  Ten Metaphors to Awaken the Sacred Masculine,” and is our guest on this edition of Radio Curious.

Matthew Fox first visited Radio Curious in 1999 when his book “Sins of the Spirit, Blessing of the Flesh: Lesson for Transforming Evil, in Soul and Society,” was published.  So, when we came across “The Hidden Spirituality Men,” the latent curiosity of Radio Curious about spirituality was awakened.

Fox and I spoke by visited again, by phone from his home in Oakland, California on January 11, 2011.  Our conversation, which explores male and female spirituality, began with Matthew Fox distinguishing spirituality, faith, religion and dogma.

The book Matthew Fox recommends is “Walt Whitman: Shamanism, Spiritual Democracy and the World Soul,” By Steven B. Herrmann.

Thanks for sharing this, Matt!  I especially appreciated Matthew's comments about pansexuality (Of course, I would!).  It reminded me of Jenny Wade's study entitled "Transcendent Sex".  This is Jenny's blurp about the study: The book is based on the narratives of 91 people who were not using drugs or practicing Tantric or other sexual or meditative techniques to bring about an altered state during sex.  Their stories are amazing, touching, funny, heartwarming and inspiring as they relate how going to bed the way they always had suddenly turned into an awe-inspiring experience that forever changed the way they understood themselves and reality—and the power of sex and the body as a vehicle of realization.

One section of the study is dedicated to those who had a transcendent sexual experience in or with Nature.  Transcendent sex doesn't have to be two-bodied practice as Matthew pointed out.
