Changes in health may be turning points for soul

Healing Journeys hosts Thomas Moore at its free conference Saturday 23 June and Sunday 24 June 2012 at Spartanburg Methodist College, Spartanburg, South Carolina. This Cancer as a Turning Point from Surviving to Thriving event is for people: "touched by cancer or any life-altering condition; caregivers, family members, or friends of someone touched by cancer or other illness; physicians, nurses, social workers, and other healthcare providers."

According to the program schedule Moore speaks Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. about care of the soul. In her Director's Reflections for April 2012, founder and executive director Jan Adrian writes "What's missing in Mind-Body-Spirit?", drawing attention to Moore's column "Care of the Soul: Mega-Soul" in the March-April 2012 issue of Spirituality & Health magazine. Adrian writes:
"I recently read in an article by Thomas Moore that 'The classical trinity has always been “body soul spirit.' He said, 'Even ‘enlightened’ healthcare workers speak easily of 'mind-body-spirit' medicine, not even noticing that the soul is missing.'

That ‘enlightened’ healthcare worker could be me. I feel like I have often ignored my soul, giving all my attention to body, mind, and spirit. For the sake of this conversation, 'Spirit' is the non-material world, the energy through which we all connect, and through which we connect to the Divine, however we conceive of it. 'Soul' is the thing that makes me unique. It’s my personal life force. It’s what makes me feel alive. Thomas Moore says, 'a soulful life and fun go together.'"
