Spirtuality & Practice shares resources for Thomas Moore's new book, A Religion of One's Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World
that is now available. Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat review
Moore's book while sharing their support for his approaches and sources. They also offer an excerpt
about Meaning from the book.
S&P hosts an online course with Moore starting 3 February 2014
: "Crafting Your Own Religion with Thomas Moore." This course runs from Monday 3 February to Friday 28 February for $49.95.
Through emails sent Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week, Moore explores:
• Religion's way of engaging the mysteries.
• Experiences of ordinary mysticism.
• Sanctifying daily life by borrowing from the monastic traditions.
• Dream practice.
• Art as an essential in our own religion.
• Revelation, epiphany, and intuition.
• Integrating the sensual and the spiritual.
• Connecting with the world community and your neighbors.
"Your own religion may mean staying with your long-held tradition and rediscovering its value, arranging its components into a personal "rule" of life. Seekers may draw from many traditions and from nature to formulate a way of life and a practice that is not secular but is not religious in the usual sense. Atheists and agnostics may engage the eternal questions of meaning and create a religion suited to them."
These emails give practical suggestions and tasks. In the online Practice Circle we will talk about this process, swap ideas, and share inspiring resources. Moore participates in the Practice Circle to answer questions and make other suggestions. In late February, we'll be able to connect with him during a one-hour teleconference. Register now
