Cosmic Mass with Matthew Fox

  • Whitley Theological Center 285 Oblate Drive San Antonio, TX, 78216 United States (map)

WHAT: The Cosmic Mass is a ritual celebration process which combines elements of ecstatic dance, guided meditation and sacred ritual, based on the Four Directions of the Earth (North/Via Negativa; East/Via Creativa; South/Via Positiva, West/Via Transformativa). This process is inspired by the international phenomenon of dance raves, but is also firmly grounded in the findings of leading-edge, contemporary science, as well as the ancient indigenous beliefs and the age-old contemplative faith traditions of the East and West. 

WHY:  The Cosmic Mass offers an inviting, inclusive and intuitive entry for those new to spirituality, while tapping into the deep resonance of ancient religious, mystical, and shamanistic teachings as well. Christian in its base, the Cosmic Mass integrates the teachings of Creation Spirituality, and has attracted Buddhists and Jews, Muslims, Pagans, Hindus, and non-believers.

The Cosmic Mass replaces pews with a dance floor and replaces reading with dancing and meditation triggered by powerful imagery and music, enhanced with DJ and VJ performances, as well as live musicians.  While a brief “teaching” will be included, the printed texts of modern worship are replaced by the context of experience, employing elements of rave and sacred dance
