Join Moore on Marco Island in February 2009

Information about Thomas Moore’s 2009 symposium on Marco Island for the New England Educational Institute is now available online. Barque usually notifies readers about Moore’s Cap Cod summer offerings. Here's an opportunity to participate in his Spirituality and Care of the Soul in Psychotherapy symposium, from February 16 to 20 2009, in Florida. It will convene at the Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort on Marco Island from 9:00 a.m. until 12:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. Fly into the Fort Myers Airport, approximately a 40-mile drive from the island.

"In this symposium, participants will establish an idea of the very nature of healing and ways of becoming an effective healer. Participants will explore biographies of men and women who were and are effective doctors, nurses, and counselors as well as figures from the world's religions, mythology, alchemy, literature, and film and how they offer deep insight into healing. Participants will view filmed interviews of healers, and examine poetry, fiction, and the visual arts in order to obtain a complete picture of the qualities needed to be a healer. The "shadow" side of being a counselor or medical professional – problems of eros, power, money, belief, insecurity, and burn-out – will also be addressed." This offering is primarily for "psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, primary care physicians, nurses and allied mental health professionals."
