About the Author

Skylar Wilson, MA is a graduate of Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies and founder of Wild Awakenings, a wilderness journey and rites of passage organization dedicated to the thriving of Earth, life, and humanity. Skylar has experienced the healing power of wilderness over and over while guiding trips around the world for adolescents and adults over the past 15 years. Skylar is director of an inter-cultural ritual called the Cosmic Mass, which attempts to bring together the world’s spiritual traditions into an embodied, transformational ritual that builds community through dancing and the arts. He serves on the Vision Council at the Stepping Stones Project where he continues to lead two on-going rites of passage groups for teenagers. He enjoys surfing, swimming, climbing, writing, giving and receiving bodywork, officiating weddings and end-of-life rituals, as well as one-on-one integration sessions with people of all ages and backgrounds. www.wildawakenings.com

Matthew Fox has been called a maverick, a rebel, and by some a heretic. In his quest for a viable spirituality he discovered the ancient (but often suppressed) creation spirituality tradition that honors the sacredness of all creation. He has worked closely with Native spiritual leaders, feminists, activists, and others, and got himself in trouble with his mother church and the pope. He has written 34 books on spirituality and culture now translated in 67 languages and has taught in many schools including Stanford, the University of Creation Spirituality, which he founded, and the soon to be born Fox Institute for Creation Spirituality in Boulder, Colorado. Among his books are Original Blessing, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, A Way To God: Thomas Merton's Creation Spirituality Journal, Meister Eckhart: A Mystic Warrior for Our Times.
