A broad set of belief systems in which creation is worshipped and in which a belief in many gods (polytheism) is held.
This spirituality has much in common with pagan Wicca (Witchcraft), which is also focused on worshipping creation.
It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to 'That Which Is Within.'" Usually pagan influenced spirituality centers will sponsor all of Enneagrams, Centering Prayer, and Labyrinths.

She claimed that feminist spirituality is "dissolving that myth and image" and re-creating "a myth of God through the process of alienation from the old myth and the reconstruction of a God-myth through the lens of another experience of humanness" (p.
There is for them no hope, because demons have led them to base "creation spirituality" upon the act of despair, and the tragedy of Catholic feminist philosophy is that they have accepted despair as their act of "hope." This may be why they almost always look so sad.

Creation is permeated with a redemptive sanctification, even a divinization.
Many of today's Creation theologians or "geologians" focus excessively or exclusively on the message of Nature and the voice of the ego or conscience unenlightened by God's law, thereby leading their followers away from the one most important solution to our environmental crisis:

It is striking that the most ancient creation story in the Bible, Psalm 104, so full of praise of the fleshy creation of God, in celebrating the same for 34 verses, only at the 35th verse, and only in the context of praise and joy, raises the question of human sin.

Native Americans' creation myths also portray a different understanding about the place humans occupy vis-à-vis their animal, plant and mineral co-inhabitants of the earth.

 The Four Ways of Creation Spirituality at Project: Shadow.com
“The backbone of the creation spirituality tradition is its naming of the spiritual journey in Four Paths.
By naming the journey we assure that we shall not get stuck in any one of the paths, which can easily happen since each of the paths is deep and powerful (Fox, Creation Spirituality, 17).” A path is a relationship between two ends over a certain terrain.
We are told in Path One that awe and delight matter; in Path Two that darkness, suffering, and letting go matter; in Path Three that creativity and imagination matter; and in Path Four that justice and celebration, which add up to compassion, matter (Fox, Creation Spirituality,17-18).” What matters is the terrain the paths cover.

Creation Spirituality honors all of creation as "original blessing."  It is an ancient, earth-centered spirituality found in the deepest traditions of Judaism, Christianity, Sufism, indigenous and other paths.  As theologian
