Be a soul-sensitive person, able to guide others

Attend Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health during the weekend of 26-28 April 2019 for Thomas Moore's program Psychotherapy as Care of the Soul: A Training in Thomas Moore’s Soul-Based Approach:
"Soul-based therapy requires an ability to see what is going on beneath the surface. Since the language of the soul is poetic, we must learn to attune to artistic, literary, mythic, and dream imagery. Alchemy, Renaissance magic, and other esoteric systems also provide rich guidance for soul processes. 
Specially designed for mental-health professionals, this program with Thomas Moore explores the journey of becoming a soul-sensitive human being, able to guide others with depth. Experience an intense immersion in therapy that zeroes in on underlying narratives and themes playing out in a person’s life. 
Recommended reading James Hillman, Re-Visioning Psychology; Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul."
Tuition: $350.00 per person + room and meals.

Location: Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health

Develop your direct relationship with the divine

This week Tom Rapsas taps into the wisdom of Thomas Moore's book A Religion of One's Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World in the post "Finding God without Church (Spirituality for the Rest of Us)" for his blog Wake Up Call on Patheos.

Rapsas quotes Moore to suggest, "In this new spiritual world, you look to formal religions for insight, but create and follow your own path. You create a personal religion rooted in the practices and rituals of your own everyday life, treating 'the natural world and everyday activities as sacred.' You sense the divine in nature, through the appreciation of art and music, by 'feeling your soul stir at family gatherings, in deep friendships and romantic relationships.'" He posits:
 "If you consider yourself a spiritual person, Moore stresses that 'the discovery or creation of religion of your own, is not an option.' It is a necessary step in your spiritual development, a calling, a part of your essence that you cannot ignore if you want to achieve true spiritual fulfillment. 
The key to success is to deepen and further enrich your spiritual practice — to move beyond paying lip-service to being “spiritual but not religious” and place yourself squarely on a path of spiritual growth and development. It only works with your intention and commitment to make it work."
After listing some of Moore's suggestions for creating this approach, he concludes, "The fact is, with the right intention, virtually every daily activity can be seen as a way to connect with the Divine. Moore even mentions one of my favorite soul-enriching activities: sipping a cup of coffee in the early morning hours, in quiet contemplation."

Please share your own spiritual activities in the Comments section of Rapsas's post.

Friday 26 October 2018
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Workshop for Caretakers to Bring the Depth of Soul 
to their Work
"People are mysterious, their emotions complex and their histories unique.  Faced with the responsibility of helping others manage their own issues, caring professionals sometimes detach to avoid being overwhelmed. As a result, they often lose their connection to their clients and even to themselves; they become disconnected from the soul."

Participants can expect:
– An engaged presentation with an opportunity to be transformed
– To find that a soul-oriented approach brings a degree of richness and vision
– To learn what soul is, how it differs from spirit, and how to get to know your own soul and the soul of others
– To apply this ancient and exciting idea to their work

Register now for the Early Bird rate. Group rates and student rates are available.

Saturday 27 October 2018
10 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
A Soulful Life in a Soulful World 
"This workshop is for anyone looking to deepen their experience of life, have a sense of purpose and meaning, and find ways to be creative.  It will speak to being married at a time when relationships can be challenging and to raising children in a cool, often disorienting world. It also addresses the effort to find the right work and to age with deep satisfaction."

Participants can expect to:
– Learn what it means to have a soul and live in a soulful world
– Raise children, be married and have a career that is deeply satisfying
– Learn how to care for your soul in everyday life and help others do the same
– Find a spirituality not cut off from the deep, human soul
– Discover how to age soulfully

Thomas Moore joins other speakers for The Ageless Living Conference  in Santa Fe, New Mexico next month on Saturday 16 June and Sunday 17 June, 2018. He speaks about Ageless Soul: Becoming an Authentic Person over Time.
"In this engaging and informative program Thomas reminds us that our sense of self rises up from the deep soul, the source of vitality, connection, and meaning. To age, he says, is to evolve into who we are essentially. We ripen and mature by accepting life’s invitations and going through a series of transformations. Most of the time we accept the calls to adventure, and later work out any blockages and gaps. We may have to deal with loneliness, anger and sadness at getting older, but our bigger vision will ensure our happiness."

Timely reflection helps with shifts to age soulfully

Jane Genova introduces Ageless Soul - We Baby Boomers Needed This Book 15 Years Ago" on her blog, Over 50: Helping Baby Boomers to continue to earn income, as long as they want:
"Unfortunately for so many of us Baby Boomers, psychotherapist Thomas Moore didn't publish "Ageless Soul" until October 2017. That left us on our own to experience what Moore calls the 'first taste of aging.'"
She writes, "In Ageless Soul, this former monk gives us permission to embrace getting older. Once we do that we won't have to age. We need that permission because all the messages from the world scream about the need to fight the process of getting older."

Genova shares, "Each sentence of Moore's book provides material for reflection. He articulates exactly the paradigm shift which has been going on within me."

A vision of love, respect, healing, and compassion

With the Book of John, Thomas Moore completes his translation and commentary of the GOSPEL series published by SkyLight Paths. This series is a powerful contribution to the poetics of religion. Moore writes that his favourite page is the beginning of the Book of John. He states in the Introduction to the series,
"In my translation there is no suggestion that readers should believe in anything, join an organization, or abandon their cherished religious and philosophical ideals. I see no reason why a Christian, an agnostic, a Buddhist, or even an atheist would not be charmed and inspired by the Gospels. Anyone can freely and without any worries read the Gospels and be enriched. 
These texts are sacred not because they belong to a particular religion or spiritual tradition but because they offer a vision and a way of life that transcends the limits of reason and will. ..."
Readers of the GOSPEL series may enjoy Moore's book, Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels (Hay House, 2009).

Learn from Moore this weekend at Kripalu Center

This coming weekend at Kripalu Center near Stockbridge Massachusetts, Thomas Moore offers Psychotherapy as Care of the Soul: A Training in Thomas Moore’s Soul-Based Approach:
"For psychotherapists, analysts, counselors, coaches, clergy, and others looking to deepen their work.
The word psychotherapy means to serve or care for the soul. In soul-based therapy, we recognize the autonomy of the soul in a person’s life and the way the soul works in contrast to conscious, intended behavior. The soul is central to our humanity, intimate connections, spiritual vision, and pleasure — all of which give meaning and purpose to life. When the life of the deep soul is blocked, we suffer.
Soul-based therapy requires an ability to see what is going on beneath the surface."
In his January 2018 LinkedIn essay, "Deepening the Practice of Psychotherapy", Moore describes his approach and in his February 2018 LinkedIn essay, "Psyche-Therapy: Care of the Soul", Moore announces:
"... I'm also teaching a depth, soul-based approach to psychotherapy. The Greek roots of this word mean soul-care, and I am about to launch an online course on this theme that I have taught for over twenty years. It begins with a weekend workshop at Kripalu Center in [Stockbridge], MA, March 2-4."

Tuition for the Kripalu weekend: $350

A review of the first book in Moore's series, GOSPEL The Book of Matthew, includes: "Moore reminds us that these texts were/are not written to convey conceptual data, but to open the heart into the living presence of the Spirit of the Christ ― a Christ not adequately contained or controlled by any creed or metaphysical system. For those looking to further their soul-making experience through the imaginal mind, let this commentary provide a methodology as well some living insights."

This final volume may be pre-ordered now for its new release date of 21 February 2018.

Resolve to age soulfully in 2018 with Moore's book

Read "The bestselling author is ringing in the new year with his latest book, Ageless Soul" by Kevin O'Connor, correspondent for the Brattleboro Reformer in Vermont. O'Connor writes of Moore's event at Manchester's Northshire Bookstore for his new book, Ageless Soul: The Lifelong Journey Toward Meaning and Joy
 "Born in Detroit in 1940, he studied for the priesthood from ages 13 to 26, only to leave his Roman Catholic order just before ordination to travel the country as a college professor, psychotherapist and bestselling author of such titles as Care of the Soul: A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life.  
Now settled just across the Vermont border in southwestern New Hampshire, Moore continues to write. The author knows many people will ring in the new year with resolutions to lose weight or gain wealth. But he's ruminating over how to simultaneously focus and fill the rest of his days."

Boomers look at books as "golden years" approach

This week, Margo, an Everett Public Library staff member in Everett, Washington writes "Getting a glimpse of what’s coming as we age". In her list of helpful book titles she includes Thomas Moore's new book, Ageless Soul: The Lifelong Journey toward Meaning and Joy featured in the accompanying photograph.

Margo concludes, "Life is a series of seasons from youth to old age, how we weather those seasons is largely up to us. As I look forward to my golden years I’m grateful for my health and the many resources available at the library to help me through them. I realize golden may look bronze or silver, but that’s OK!"
