Moore delivers keynote lecture in Ottawa, May 3

Next Thursday May 3, 2007, at 8:45 a.m.,Thomas Moore is scheduled to give the Keynote Lecture at the 3rd International Conference on Spirituality & Mental Health to be held at St. Paul University in Ottawa. This event is jointly offered by The Department of Psychiatry of the University of Ottawa, the Ontario Multifaith Council on Spiritual and Religious Care and Saint Paul University.

Moore's talk is called Deep Spirituality: Spirituality Grounded in the Soul.

"Spirituality provides vision, values, and an expanding sense of self that leads to community. But unless it goes deep into the body, emotions, relationships, and the world, it can be dangerous and destructive. Another way to say this is that spirit and soul go together. This presentation tells how to practice spirituality that is deeply grounded and connected to the soul. It outlines many of the dangers of a soulless spirituality and ways to ensoul the spiritual life."
