Creation Spirituality, like Unity, is both a spiritual movement and a tradition. It has been voiced most powerfully for this generation by Spiritual Theologian Matthew Fox. Creation Spirituality integrates the wisdom of Western Spirituality and global indigenous cultures with the emerging scientific understanding of the universe and the passionate creativity of art. In other words, it is a meeting of science, art, and mysticism.
Unity is mystical Christianity, grounded in the premise that there is only One Presence and One Power in the Universe, God the Good, Omnipotent. Both Unity and Creation Spirituality teach that we are born in original blessing, blessed by the universe for billions of years before any church fathers came up with the idea of original sin. Both traditions also teach that each one of us has to discover our true self, the Christ within, which is the cosmic blueprint of wholeness in life, the perfect idea in all of creation. The spiritual journey takes us beyond the superficial life into the depths of the self.
Creation Spirituality names the journey that marks this self-discovery as a fourfold journey as follows:
- Via Positiva:
- Via Negativa:
- Via Creativa:
- Via Transformativa:
- “Transformation & Joy” Oct. 4
“Via” means life, and each of these paths describes an aspect of the life journey that we take to know our wholeness.
