Matthew Fox


Be inspired and empowered by St. Hildegard’s most pertinent teachings for these times… and experience a powerful meditation accompanied by her music and mandala painting inspired by winged spirits — to call healing angels into your own life.


If you could choose one mystic from the past to sit down with at your kitchen table and drink in her wisdom on how to live a vital, fulfilling, and spiritually awakened life in these chaotic times, you’d have made the perfect choice with St. Hildegard of Bingen.

The 12th-century Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, healer, feminist, philosopher, writer, poet, composer, and student of science has been called the Grandmother of Creation Mystics

She was a pioneer in so many fields — and so far ahead of her time — that you could spend years studying her teachings and still not take in all of her wisdom.

Her empowering and healing insights on how to approach our inner and societal masculine-feminine imbalances... commune with and honor the Earth… and face and transmute sadness and overwhelm are profound and timely, offering us empowerment and inspiration for the path ahead.

Her visions and teachings on how we can connect with our divinity and the benevolent spirits of other realms provide an inspiring glimpse into the sacred and the evolution of our soul.

In this complimentary online workshop, Matthew Fox, a renowned spiritual pioneer and author of numerous books on St. Hildegard, will metaphorically open the great wooden doors of the stone abbey where she lived — and introduce you to some of this beloved mystic’s most pertinent and necessary teachings for these times... 

You’ll discover profound wisdom for finding calmness and harmony within — and for our troubled world — through Hildegard’s teachings on how to cultivate an inner balance of the Healthy Masculine and Divine Feminine that heightens self-awareness and ultimately self-fulfillment. 

You’ll learn about Hildegard's mystical teachings on divinity gleaned from Celtic wisdom, her profound encounters with angelic realms, and yet another of her healing gifts — her ability to create highly effective plant medicines that not only addressed dis-ease but were also coveted as powerful spiritual remedies for treating maladies of the soul.


In this enlightening hour with Matthew and St. Hildegard, you’ll:

  • Discover Hildegard’s timely wisdom for replacing the masculine approach of control and power-over with the feminine model of partnership with oneself, others, and the earth
  • Experience a powerful meditation accompanied by Hildegard’s music as you focus on her painting of 9 concentric mandalas — known as the 9 choirs of angels — to call healing angels into your own life
  • Discover Hildegard’s Celtic wisdom through a reading of her Gaelic-inspired poem that perceives the sun as the face of God
  • Learn about Hildegard’s proficiency in creating botanical medicines — also revered as spiritual remedies — through her alchemies for cultivating courage, compassion, and tranquility
  • Explore Hildegard’s special relationship with angels, which she saw as spheres of light and believed could take on the forms of humans and animals

You’ll also hear about a new opportunity to expand your own spiritual journey — and your knowledge and love of St. Hildegard of Bingen — by delving further into her wisdom and impact with Matthew in a brand-new live online course.

Over nine inspiring and empowering weeks, Matthew will unveil more of Hildegard’s many “faces” through her beliefs, paintings, writings, poetry, music, chants, philosophies, and remedies — delving deeply into her profound teachings from eight centuries ago that are steeped in the wisdom and hope we so badly need today.

What People Are Saying About Matthew Fox...

“I cannot recommend reading Matthew’s books and taking his courses on Hildegard enough.”

Hildegard of Bingen is one of the great prophetic rebels of all time, and Matt has written what I consider to be an absolutely thrilling and brilliant and passionate and extremely radical book about the woman that he studied for 30 years in Hildegard of Bingen. I cannot recommend reading Matthew’s books and taking his courses on Hildegard enough.
— Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope and Turn Me to Gold: 108 Poems of Kabir

“I am grateful to the wise and joyous voice of Matthew Fox...”

“I am grateful to the wise and joyous voice of Matthew Fox, who helps mystics like Julian of Norwich — and her sister mystic, Hildegard of Bingen — sing across the centuries and transfigure our hearts now, when we need them most.”
— Mirabai Starr, author of Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce & Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics and God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam

“[Matthew is] a major teacher and guide.”

I think of Matthew Fox as “God’s Talent Scout” for all the pivotal figures and ideas he has reclaimed for the reform of Christianity. He knows the sources and translates them into modern idioms for the rest of us! What he has done with Hildegard, Eckhart, and Aquinas himself makes him a major teacher and guide.
Richard Rohr, OFM, Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico

“Matthew Fox is the Obi-Wan Kenobi of spirituality.“

Matthew Fox is the Obi-Wan Kenobi of spirituality. He has redefined what healthy spirituality is, and what it is not. We should place him at the same level of cultural importance as Thomas Berry, Gandhi, and Dr King.
— Steve Mortimer, Black Chapel Collective

“If one person deserves credit for the great Hildegard renaissance in our time, it is Matthew Fox.”

If one person deserves credit for the great Hildegard renaissance in our time, it is Matthew Fox. Here in the long-lost legacy of Hildegard of Bingen, Fox found blindingly beautiful paintings, radiant writings overflowing with fresh insights of the deepest kind, prophetic wisdom, and engaged political spirituality. Here was a mystical genius who could help to illuminate the human soul spirituality, ecologically, politically — in every dimension of life.
— Mary Ford-Grabowsky, author of Sacred Voices

“History will name Fox one of the great Christian spirits of our age.”

— John Shelby Spong, author of A New Christianity for a New World


About Matthew Fox

Matthew Fox is a prolific author of books dedicated to renewing the ancient tradition of Creation Spirituality, including Original Blessing, A Spirituality Named Compassion, and Christian Mystics. This earth-based mystical tradition is feminist, welcoming of the arts and artists, honors Indigenous wisdom, works with science, and is committed to interfaith approaches and eco, social, and gender justice.

Matthew’s effort to reawaken the West to its own mystical tradition has sparked awareness of Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, and the mysticism of Thomas Aquinas, as well as the wisdom tradition that nurtured Jesus. His work helps reconnect science and spirituality by honoring the sacredness of the cosmos and interacting with contemporary scientists who are also mystics. He believes that “by reinventing work, education, and worship, we can bring about a nonviolent revolution on our planet.”

Matthew received his doctorate summa cum laude in the History and Theology of Spiritualities from the Institut Catholique de Paris. A member of the Dominican Order for 34 years, he established an Institute in Culture and Creation Spirituality that operated for seven years at Mundelein College in Chicago, and for 12 years at Holy Names University in Oakland.

He founded the University of Creation Spirituality in Oakland in 1996, and was president and professor until 2005, when he left to create a pilot project to reinvent the educational experience for inner-city teenagers.

Matthew is a recipient of many awards, including the Gandhi King Ikeda Award from Morehouse College, which is awarded for dedication to peace, unity, nonviolence, and justice. He also received the Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience Award; other recipients have included the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks. He is currently a visiting scholar at the Academy for the Love of Learning in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
