Syracuse University Magazine talks with Moore

In its most recent issue Syracuse University Magazine publishes a Q&A with Thomas Moore titled "Soulful Journey" (Fall/Winter 2014 vol. 31 no. 3).

When the Magazine's associate editor Amy Speach asks Moore about his new book, A Religion of One's Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World, his response includes:
"I don’t see religion as an institution, but as a way of being in relation to the world, in which you appreciate the mystery and the infinite that you perceive in nature and how, when you’re participating in the arts, you’re really encountering this deep archetypal world, this world that is invisible to us. This book is about a religion of one’s own — about finding your own way and putting together all these different resources, including psychology. I’ve been a psychotherapist, too, for 30 years, so I like to put psychology and religion together. I call it “care of the soul and spirit” in my language."
