On his bog site Thomas Moore offers "Finding Your Depth"
that promotes Saturday's live webinar
at 1:00 p.m. through the New York Open Center. Moore writes, "I’ll also explore myths of deepening: Odysseus, Psyche and Eros, Orpheus, Persephone, and Dante, all as sources of insight into our own fall into the soul. I think this fall happens frequently but is often misread as a life problem rather than an invitation." At the end of this post he shares his translation of Rainer Maria Rilke's (1875-1926), Sonnets to Orpheus
, Book I, Number 9.
Moore recommends the following in the Open Center's description of his program:
C. G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections,
Patricia Berry, Echo’s Subtle Body
James Hillman, The Thought of the Heart
in addition to his own books:
Care of the Soul
Dark Nights of the Soul
Moore leads a meditation on Igor Stravinsky's ballet Orpheus
. Isamu Noguchi designed the costumes and sets for New York City Ballet's 1948 premiere. Orpheus' lyre
represented the ballet company until 2008.
