Learn about ecology of the soul in May 2009

Schumacher College updates its description for the course, Nourishing the Soul: Archetypes, myth & meaning scheduled for May 5-15, 2009. Thomas Moore and his wife teach the second week of the course, Ecology of the Soul: Deepening Everyday Life through Art, Yoga and Discussion.

"Ecology usually refers to protecting the natural environment. Ecology of the soul is the process of tending deep values of connection, beauty and community. Soul is not the same as spirit. Soul is what makes a person or a thing fully what it is and connected to the world. Through meditation, daily yoga, lecture/discussion and the arts (50% lecture/discussion, 50% experiential), this course explores ways to live soulfully, focusing on the following themes:

Monday – Ways to live soulfully – image and the poetic life
Tuesday – Desire and pleasure
Wednesday – Enchantment, community and beauty
Thursday – The imperfect life – depression, anger and failure
Friday – Calling, dharma and opus

No previous experience with art, meditation or yoga is necessary.
Advance reading:
Care of the Soul or The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life by Thomas Moore."
