The Crossings, in Austin, Texas will host Thomas Moore’s workshop, Living a Soulful Life
from Friday 3 Nov. to Sunday 5 Nov., 2006. The course costs $295 (U.S.) before an early registration discount, student discount, or senior discount may be applied. Accommodation and commuting options are outlined with the description.
Moore talks about his approach,
"Living with inner peace, creativity, and deep pleasure requires first dealing with old wounds, anger, sadness, broken loves, and bad habits. Once these are dealt with, you can live from a deeper place, learn from your dreams, discover how to open your heart, and find your own spirituality. Alchemists call this long and deep soul-work “opus.” This workshop is an opportunity to intensify your opus—to get some ideas, tools, and techniques for wakening and tending your soul and spirit. It involves instruction, discussion, group exercises, image work, and journal writing."
He recommends reading:
James Hillman, The Dream and the Underworld
Jane Hirshfield, Women in Praise of the Sacred
C. G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul
Lao Tzu,Tao Te Ching
(translated by Gia-Fu-Feng and Jane English)
