Imagination, arts and spirituality may nurture soul

The C. G. Jung Society in Seattle hosts Thomas Moore's three hour public event Care of the Soul in the 21st Century on Sunday 23 October, 2016 starting at 3:00 p.m. at Seattle Public Theater.

The program description includes:
"Our society tends to be materialistic, leaving little room for soul, and is spirit-driven. In his early essay “Peaks and Vales,” James Hillman distinguishes between soul and spirit and explores how both are essential. Today generally people don’t appreciate this difference and therefore lose sight of soul. A significant route to soul involves developing a spiritual way of life that is individually captivating and rooted in this world. 
This three hour lecture and discussion explores these and other ways to be soulful in a time of intense technologizing of daily life and urgent preoccupation with the practical task of making a living. The society is also more materialistic and mechanistic than ever, and so one task is to devise our own form of the ancient monastic practice of contemptus mundi, resistance to established values. You can’t be an unconscious participant in today’s society and care for your soul. In other ways, though, we live in a time of promise. Imagination, the arts and new forms of spirituality can bring the soul alive and make life more profoundly intelligent and joyous."
