Review

"A beautiful book with a simple, clear, and profound message for our time."
--David Korten, board chair, "YES! Magazine;" author of "Agenda for a New Economy
"
"The dialogue between these two visionary men comes as a fresh, exhilarating wind. It swings wide the doors of our minds and reveals what is surely the most heartening phenomenon of our time. Illumined and honored here are the moral clarity and courage of young activists the world over, as they unmask the deadening abuses of an exhausted civilization. Matthew and Adam help us hear these voices and catch the spiritual power moving through them."
--Joanna Macy, author of "Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We're in without Going Crazy"

""Occupy Spirituality "is a powerful, inspiring, and vital call to embodied awareness and enlightened actions. 'Spiritual democracy, ' as it is called in this book, is necessary ... if we are not only to survive as a species on this beautiful, sacred planet, but also to cocreate through our conscious, committed actions a world and planet where all beings thrive together. Thank you Matthew Fox and Adam Bucko for such a wonderful book."

"A rollicking ride, a pointed and energetic exchange in which love and mutual esteem is evident on every page. ...this volume is a heart-felt and potent wake-up call for the churches to re-engage in the radical and revolutionary task that has been theirs from the outset: to produce prophets and mystics for the world."

"In "Occupy Spirituality, "our friends Adam Bucko and the Rev. Matthew Fox have begun a multigenerational conversation that is becoming critical to accomplishing the kind of change we want to see in spirituality today.

Format: Kindle Edition
A deeply inspiring conversation between two radical thinkers who walk their talk; Rev Mathew Fox, - alternately been described as “The most important living Theologian” (Bishop Mark Andrews), and a "Heretical and dangerous thinker" (Cardinal Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict) - and activist and spiritual director Adam Bucko, who works with homeless young people in New York.
It’s a book full of hope and challenge. Nowhere more than when they are discussing the issue of life purpose.
They advocate courage and wildness, the need to live life without the safely of “An insurance policy.” As Rev Fox puts it “It is scary in the sense that awe is scary – it’s exciting, it keep you on edge, it keeps you alert and alive. It invites you to adventure. Isn’t every vocation an adventure? And that’s the warrior thing.”
Both men are extremely honest, authentic and generous in the accessible way they share their wisdom. Wisdom is not a word I use lightly – but in this case it’s really appropriate. Rev Fox is the foremost authority on Thomas Aquinas and Hildegard von Bingen, Thomas Merton shaped his life when he proposed to Fox as a young man that he go to Paris to study under Pere Chenu, a Dominican who is often regarded as father of Liberation Theology. Adam Bucko draws on his experience of Buddhism and Sufi practices, his experience of psychology and integration of body work. Bucko also draws to great effect on his experience working with homeless and marginalised youth in New York – indeed among the most moving and inspiring parts of the book are the extensive quote from these young people.
This is a book that really challenged me about how I live my life, a book that’s a call to action, and that will resonate with me I believe for a long time to come.

if you are aware of this scene and spirituality you are going to be very familiar with the discussion, I did not make it to the end because it simply was not engaging, however I do like the idea of trying to unpick a spirituality and motivation set from the occupy movement

5.0 out of 5 stars A Radical and Thought Provoking Book 6 Sept. 2015
By J. Callanan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

After all as they remind us “We are the weavers of the fabric of modern society. We can weave love, truthfulness and peace or we can weave hatred and mistrust and war. We will have to wear whatever fabric we weave” (Vilamla Thakar quoted in afterward).

5.0 out of 5 stars Robbie Lloyd 16 Jun. 2014
By Dr Robbie Lloyd - Community Builder and Advocate for Empowerment of People With Disability and Mental Distress - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Matthew Fox is a world citizen with the courage to challenge the Catholic Church, and Adam Bucko is a world citizen challenging Wall St through the Occupy movement. Together they are today's Shamans - showing how to rise above the fear, self-interest and infighting that defeats humans and destroys Mother Earth. Read this book and be revived with new hope. Read this book and rediscover your own courage to resist giving away your life to the shallow, meaningless "life goals" we've all been sold: "success" being money, status and consuming ability; solo living not shared community; rationalism and materialism over spirit, feeling and love-based ways of nurturing and sustaining ourselves, and our fellow creatures and creation in the Earth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting format. 28 April 2014
By Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The format of the back and forth dialogue between the younger and older agenerations was interesting. They covered some good topics. But I found Adam Bucko's life experience, while interesting and commendable, too foreign for me, as an American, to relate to. They brought out some good points about the need to take a serious look at how our government is being controlled by those with economic power and that we need to revolt against it. But they really offered no alternative and it came off to me as an invitation to anarchy.

I have always appreciated Matthew Fox's creation spirituality and been saddened by the way he was treated by his Church and his own religious order. And while I certainly can't blame him for this, he does come across as more than a little bitter.

I love the format of this book! It's written as a dialogue between two wonderful teachers, which makes it easy to read and made me feel like I was part of the conversation! They capture a generation's hunger for change beautifully! Loved it.
