Join Moore online to explore the Holy Fool

Spirituality & Practice hosts a new four-week online course starting 8 September 2014: The Holy Fool: Finding Spiritual Liberation in Foolishness and Humor with Thomas Moore.
"Starting September 8 and continuing through October 3, through emails mailed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, Moore will introduce you to some of his favorite exemplars of the spirit of the Holy Fool (Socrates, Erasmus, Nasruddin, Emily Dickinson) while covering such themes as:
— why seeking transcendence is a kind of foolishness
— how to deal creatively with the times when you feel foolish,
— how can you develop a comic view of life to offset the usual tragic one,
— what the spiritual teacher has in common with the stand-up comedian,
— how to laugh at yourself in a way that helps."

 Cost: $49.95
