A New Creation Story

Scientific discoveries about the nature of the universe have given the world a singular creation story and a communal history.

Creation spirituality gathers all tribes and religions together to celebrate our shared cosmic creation story. Joining with scientists around the world, we are humbled by our expansive Universe containing one trillion galaxies, each with 200 billion stars.  We are in awe of the miracle of life as it has evolved on our planet. Creation Spirituality awakens awe and inspires gratitude, lifting our spirits and drawing us into a playful and joyful relationship with life.

A new cosmic creation story is important because, historically, all tribes define themselves through their creation stories. Today, with scientists from laboratories all over the world coming to agreement on the origins of the universe and the dynamics of its evolution,  we have the potential for a sense of global unity, an experience of the human race as a single tribe bound together by a single inspiring creation story.

A New Spiritual Landscape

Creation Spirituality celebrates and courageously honors the rich diversity within the Cosmos which is expressed by individuals and communities in many cultures, religions, and ancestral traditions. In Creation Spirituality all individuals can feel the warmth of sacred hospitality and welcome.

Through our experience of interconnectedness, Creation Spirituality honors the common river that runs through all religions. It recognizes the experience of awe and gratitude that is at the heart of all religions and the desire for spiritual communion with the divine. Creation Spirituality could be compared to a tent (in Hebrew, ohel) that is big enough for all; a tent that offers peace and compassion within its walls.

A New Human

Reverence for creation awakens an inner urgency to care for creation and move towards planetary sustainability.

kevins worldCreation Spirituality provides us with a coherent theology and an embodied spirituality that is interwoven with creation. It gives us the meaning and the means to effectively address ecological justice not as separate beings acting upon the Earth, but as conscious members of the earth community.  When the Earth is wounded, we are wounded. When the essence of the cosmos is offended by prejudice,  greed, and oppression, we are offended as well.

Now is the moment when the Earth needs our devotion. Now is the time to honor our own sacredness and our reverence for our planet. Now is the time to listen to the spirituality of creation for guidance in difficult times.

Creation Spirituality recognizes the divinity and creative potential in every person and draws out our gifts for creating beauty and justice.

At the same time as it invites us to our creativity, Creation Spirituality challenges us to get up off the sofa, to get our heads out of computers and televisions and wake-up to the world in need. We are invited to stop passive and addictive behaviors and start living life with purpose
and compassion. Now, when we need it most, the deep knowledge of Creation Spirituality is prepared to lift us to a truer connection to the spirit within, the spirit around us, the whole earth family, and the creating energies of the cosmos.

The teachings of Creation Spirituality are both timely and timeless.

The principles of Creation Spirituality resonate with deep thinkers, mystics, and spiritual warriors at every age.  The young and middle-aged who have been abandoning traditional faith communities recognize Creation Spirituality as a tradition that cares deeply about the future of the planet: the future of our children and grandchildren and their grandchildren!   The non-hierarchical, body-mind practices of Creation Spirituality offer a path back into the ancient wisdom of Earth and its peoples – it provides the rituals, celebrations and healing salve that are needed now.
