Three-part series by Moore about James Hillman

Join Thomas Moore in April 2022 for his three-part program The Life and Legacy of James Hillman, hosted by The Retreat at Pacifica Online via Zoom. Sessions are delivered live on Thursday: April 7, 21, 28, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time (1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time).

Over the course of these sessions, Moore discusses:

1. How did James Hillman make valuable additions and corrections to Jung’s work?
"Probably the best example of Hillman’s devotion to Jung and the thrust of his own thought is his book Anima, where one page is Jung writing about anima, the facing page Hillman’s own creative responses. Hillman critiques the use of gender in the concepts of anima and animus. He proposes polytheism instead of wholeness and unity. He suggests focusing on the individual rather than on types."

2. The central roles of Hermes and Aphrodite in James Hillman’s mythological psychology.
Hillman often invoked Hermes as the spirit of paradox, fresh thinking, surprise, ideas as revelations rather than rational conclusions. He felt that Hermes is essential to therapy for allowing insights to appear and for discoveries to be made.

3. How does James Hillman’s Archetypal Psychology translate into cultural renewal, a personal philosophy, and a psychotherapy?
Hillman suggests re-imagining our problems, social and personal, rather than trying to solve them on their own literal terms. He describes therapy as arriving at a new fiction of our predicaments. He understands that soul-making has to be a way of life.

In-person keynote speaker at mental health event

Thomas Moore is a keynote speaker at the Lowcountry Mental Health Conference planned for July 28-30, 2021 in Charleston, South Carolina. The conference provides "professional development training to mental health professionals" and offers in-person and virtual registration.

July 29, 2021; 3:45pm – 5:00pm
Psychotherapy as Care of the Soul
Keeping the Soul Thriving Through the Therapeutic Process

"Soul is our depth, the source of our identity and vitality. It needs care of those things important to it: family, home, food, friends, sexuality, work and creativity. Nurture these things, and the soul is content. Neglect them and the soul complains in the form of symptoms. Therapy can keep the soul thriving at a deep level through narrative and dream especially. It helps to be attuned to the deep myths and characters that live through us. The soul also needs big vision and experiences of transcendence. Techniques and theories are not enough to prepare a therapist for such a profound task. The arts and spiritual traditions offer further background for creating a therapeutic situation. In this keynote, Dr. Moore will discuss the ways in which therapists may help nurture the souls of those they serve.

– Through interactive discussion and presentation of case examples, participants will analyze and be able to distinguish soul and spirit, soul and psyche, therapy and care.
– Participants will be able to describe and show how dreams and myth play a role in therapy, and how practically to use them.
 – Through case examples and discussion participants will better define therapy to include attention to spirit as well as soul and see the therapist as a spiritual director to some extent.

July 30, 2021 Lunch Session 11:30am – 12:45pm
Alchemy, Dreamwork and Magic in Therapy
ROOM: Salon Room 2

"Therapy has an alchemical aspect that includes building a vessel, putting problems into a narrative “solution,” heating and cooling the process, dissolving and congealing the material, the prima materia. Dreamwork gives hints as to what is going on at a lower level and helps deepen life altogether. Magic is the power of the therapist to use words effectively and to create an environment in which emotional health rises out of conflict and confusion.

In this break-out session, Dr. Moore will explore the deeper therapeutic process using the themes of alchemy and magic as both metaphor and guidepost.

– Through in depth discussion and analysis, participants will reach beyond modernist assumptions to find value in dreams, alchemy and magic, and to apply this new information in their daily clinical work.
– Participants will apply skills in seeing the colors, processes and images of alchemy at work in therapy.
– Through small group discussions, participants will demonstrate deeper elements of therapeutic process as defined by Dr. Moore using the themes of alchemy and magic as both metaphor and guideposts to understanding the roots of life problems.

S&P hosts Moore's Gospel course for Lent 2021

Spirituality & Practice promotes Thomas Moore's on-demand Gospel course for Lent 2021. This program "was originally offered during Lent in 2011 and is formatted to run from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday:" The Spirituality of the Gospels
"Using his fertile imagination, drawing upon his own translations of the Gospels, Moore offers fresh interpretations to deepen and enliven anyone's spiritual life. Calling the texts "intelligent, challenging, and incredibly inspiring," Moore encourages us to take to heart the distinctive imagery of the Gospels and the many insights to be found there about the central themes of the human adventure.

He explores how Jesus gives us a rounded and ripe sense of the kingdom of God; challenges our long-accepted ideas about purity, wealth, and power; and gives us parables that turn things upside down. Sayings by and stories about Jesus model a path of love, empathy, sharing, self-possession, sensuality, and treating all people well."

Moore's discussion is warm and far ranging, touching on mythology, Jungian psychology, religion, and our need for intelligence.
"He describes this unusual experience as a liminal state, strangely out of the ordinary and yet still a rite of passage. He offers hope and strategies for redeeming the pain, fear and unsettling feelings of this global and local nightmare, making it count as a period of growth rather than just a problem to get through. It's all about how you imagine it and see your life advancing because of it."

Give the gift of the season for everyone, a classic

This year Thomas Moore shares a Christmas message about his classic book, The Soul of Christmas: "Christmas is one of the most holy and meaningful of times, but people don’t always understand its depth and universality.

Some think it is mainly for children, but it also appeals to the child spirit in adults. It evokes the eternal, archetypal and mythic child. C. G. Jung, the spiritually oriented Swiss psychoanalyst, writes that images of a child point to all beginnings in life, all kinds of renewal and possibilities. So Christmas is about the eternal child, in us and in our culture, its new beginnings and its hope for a peaceful world.

Some think that Christmas is too commercial, but maybe they don’t realize that gift-giving is a perfect ritual expression of its very essence.

Some are confused about whether they should honor Christmas since they are not Christian. Yet the roots of Christmas lie far deeper than Christianity. Christmas is a religious or spiritual festival, but it comes from a religious sensibility deep in every human being, and it belongs to everyone.

Santa Claus is a truly holy figure, an example for all of us at this time. His name, Santa, means saint or holy person, and he embodies one of the main virtues and values of Christmas: the spirit of giving and generosity. He offers an example of how we might behave if we relaxed the narcissistic fantasy of ownership and the hoarding of money and property that is such a pillar of modern life.

Christmas is a liminal time, an unusual period when the normal ways are turned upside down, allowing us to reassess our values. Santa teaches radical generosity and an economic system of gift-giving. Santa’s way is not communistic or socialistic but an example of giving of yourself rather than always trying to take and possess.

The story of Jesus’s birth, so beautiful and inspiring, also speaks to everyone who holds an image of a better world motivated less by narcissistic self-interest and more by generosity of heart. Jesus as infant is our world in the infancy of its maturing toward universal love.

A few years ago I wrote a book that was published by Franciscan Media, appropriately by monks dedicated to the selfless and heart-centered philosophy of St. Francis. In this book I explore many “symbols” of Christmas — the tree, the star, animals, a stable, a struggling mother — and show how anyone, no matter what their background and beliefs may be, can deepen their appreciation for this meaningful season.

Yes, we may become too frazzled by shopping, even online. But these excesses don’t take away the essential beauty of this annual ritual that is tied closely to the short, dark days of December and the return of light, a sign of hope and the end of emotional darkness.

Here are links to purchase my book, The Soul of Christmas, which might brighten and deepen your experience of this inspirational season. Buy at Franciscan Media or Amazon.

Wishing you a beautiful holiday,
Thomas Moore

Moore talks about soul, dream, death, time, God

This week author Tim Freke, an old friend of Thomas Moore interviews him for the podcast What is Life? Freke is based in Glastonbury, U.K. Because of their friendship, this conversation touches subjects that Moore doesn't usually discuss in his public talks and it is rich with new imaginings: They talk for approximately 1 hour and 22 minutes. 
 At the beginning of the podcast, Freke mentions a session in Bath, U.K. at which Moore's presentation followed his own. Once on stage Moore talks about daydreaming during Freke's talk and how figures in surrounding paintings seemed to step out of their frames and dance at the session. You can watch this talk by Moore, The New Epicureans at Moore suggests we need a more expansive inclusion of the erotic to help with cultural challenges.

How will we make a beautiful material world?

Christopher Rodrigues talks with Thomas Moore about our material world in his post "On craft: A conversation with Thomas Moore" in September, 2020. When referring to William Mooris, Moore responds:
"In fact, [Morris] did make special, artful and powerful books, just as Jung did with his Red Book. I place them both in a historical line that includes Marsilio Ficino, Abbot Trithemius, Cornelius Agrippa, Paracelsus, John Dee, Robert Fludd and eventually W. B. Yeats. All people who used the powers of nature to have a therapeutic effect on the world."

When Rodrigues mentions the role of Hephaestus, Moore suggests:

"Practical things become potent images. In Jungian and Archetypal psychology we see images as the presentation of psyche or soul. Therefore the work of Hephaestus’ craft is a physical psychotherapy, or care of soul. William Morris and Jung knew, better than most, how the practical world can reveal the soul and stir the imagination."

Moore teams up with his daughter in November

Thomas Moore and his daughter Siobhán Moore (Ajeet Kaur) participate in the Winter Series offered by The Hedge School in Ireland from Nov. 2 to Nov. 23, 2020. According to the hosts:
"We will be in response to Samhain — The Celtic New Year and season of death and renewal. This is a time when the veil is thin. As we slip into the darkness in the northern hemisphere we remember the Ancestors, the Otherworld and our collective place in a world grappling with a dark night of the soul. Our focus for our Hedge School Winter Series is on Belonging: Ancestral Lineage, Cultural Memory and Collective Trauma Restoration. We will explore these themes from Irish and global perspectives as one of the burning issues on our world stage right now."
 Moore and his daughter offer a shared presentation:
"Then we travel across the Atlantic to East Coast America to meet Thomas Moore (author of Care of the Soul, Dark Nights of the Soul and 25 other books on spirituality and depth psychology, former monk, international lecturer and psychotherapist) and his daughter Ajeet Kaur (Siobhán Moore) (internationally acclaimed music artist in the sacred traditions of Ireland, India, and other world folk traditions.) They will join together to share music, stories, and ancient traditions as potent rituals for the times we live in."
The Hedge School meets for seven sessions of  90 minutes across the 3-week period, Monday & Thursday, 7:00 p.m. Dublin Time beginning Monday 2 November, 2020. Participants receive recordings, resources and packages after each session.

Moore's book Soul Therapy available 4 May 2021

HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins provides its full description for Thomas Moore's new book, Soul Therapy: The Art and Craft of Caring Conversations, to be available 4 May 2021. Pre-order now.

The New York Times bestselling author of the classic Care of the Soul "addresses the needs of those providing soul care to others — therapists, psychiatrists, ministers, spiritual directors, teachers, and even friends — sharing his insights for incorporating a spiritual or soulful dimension into their work and practices.

Soul Therapy is the culmination of Thomas Moore’s work. In his previous acclaimed books, he explored the soul in important areas of our lives — work, sex, marriage, family, religion, and aging. In this wise guide, he now returns to his core vocation: teaching practitioners — therapists, psychiatrists, ministers, spiritual directors, and others — how to offer soul care to those they assist.

A training manual infused with a lifetime’s worth of wisdom, Soul Therapy is divided into five sections:

— What therapy or “soul care” is and how it works;
— What soul work is required of the helper to be able to address the needs of others;
— How to access and move forward the spiritual dimension;
— How to apply this work to specific areas, such as work, marriage, parenting, or teaching;
— How to deal with other issues that arise, such as developing a therapeutic style, dealing with one’s shadow, and the need for self-care.

Profound yet practical, enlightened yet grounded in real-world experience, Soul Therapy will become a definitive resource for caregivers and practitioners for years to come."

Thomas Moore is a faculty member for this program. Moore's first module is titled Rhythms, Episodes, Cadences and Fugues in the Psyche
"Picking up the Boethius idea of Musica Humana, I explore the musical dynamic structure of human experience. The rhythms and tempos of emotions and moods and meaningful events. How to be a musician of your life or a musician of the soul, appreciating how musical forms exist in the psyche in ways parallel to their appearance in the music of sound. This musical approach allows for a kind of psychotherapy that allows the natural movements of the soul but also offers techniques for shaping those experiences and dealing with them in ways that are graceful and satisfying."

Moore's second module is Soul Music in the Italian Renaissance:

"This approach to music and the psyche is based in the imaginative work of Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499), who was a musician, philosopher, translator and magus. He sorted music astrologically according to the classical Greek gods and goddesses, recommended diagnosing the particular needs of the soul, and playing and listening to music that would either temper the mood or deepen it. It is possible to adapt Ficino’s methods today, becoming more conscious, artful and therapeutic in the way we use music for the soul."

Caring for soul and spirit web series starts Oct. 6

Thomas Moore offers a four-part webinar series with SDI Workshops this month: Caring for Soul and Spirit with Thomas Moore

These 75-minute sessions are on Tuesday, October 6, 13, 20, 27 at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time (3:00 p.m. Eastern Time).

Week 1 
Soul and spirit are two directions a meaningful life can take, two elements in our basic make-up as human beings. Spirit aims high toward perfection, future bliss, order, a sense of the cosmos, high states of contemplation and being. Soul is embedded in ordinary life and consists of intimate emotions and relationships, home, family, sexuality, the imperfect life, shadow or dark qualities, failure and loss. Soul makes us human, while spirit gives us transcendent vision. Both are necessary and valuable, and each are best when the other is present. 

Week 2
Certain religions and their figureheads demonstrate this union of soul and spirit. Jesus is surrounded by friends and family as he teaches his way of love and community. The first shall be last. Look at the lilies in the field for an example of how to be. Help your neighbor even if you have nothing in common. The Buddha recommends a Middle Way between asceticism and worldliness. The sangha or community is essential. Zen master Shunryu Suzuki suggests seeing your way as “nothing special.” Jesus’ first miraculous sign is to supply excellent wine at a wedding party. The Tao Te Ching recommends not striving. Accomplish much by doing nothing.

Week 3
In the soul psychology of James Hillman we “go with the symptom” and not against it. If you’re sad, you can go deeper into your sadness, not to indulge in it or make it worse, but to feel it and know it better, ultimately to go through it rather than beyond it. We see that our problems point to what is painful but also what is needed. If you are lonely, you may need to be creatively alone more often or be more of an individual.

Week 4
Soul is the depth of the ordinary. Your “spiritual” practice could be more ordinarily and material. Woodworking and gardening offer opportunities for contemplation. Walking is a good spiritual practice (read Thoreau’s essay on it) or making music. You can cook for friendship and sensory pleasure and not just for health or principle. Jesus was an Epicurean, loving to have his friends with him at dinner, and others, as well. A soulful life is warm and intimate, a good base for spiritual practice.

The Facilitator for this series is Frederica Helmiere, Director of Programs and Events at SDI.
CEU credits are available for participants.

Cost: $119
Discounts for SDI members.

Podcast about Moore's early teachers and mentors

Moore is far left
Listen to a 27-minute podcast of Thomas Moore talking with host, Belinda Lams of The Moment When... for an episode from 16 June 2019.
"Thomas Moore left his home and family at age 13 to pursue the Priesthood. Inspired by life as a monk and a student, he spent over a decade immersed in a classical and spiritual education. Stacking up degrees while cultivating his interests, he grew more open-minded than his religious structure until…the very inspiration that had led him on this path was suddenly gone. Without support from his colleagues, he made his way out into the big world to find another path forward. 
Listen to this Hero’s Journey where Thomas pays homage to the brilliant mentors who called out his various gifts and reveals his belief in the mysterious angelic voice that guides his life."

Moore talks about the people who influenced his life during his early years.

Vega recommends Care of the Soul in pandemic

The New York Times article by Olivia Horn,"Suzanne Vega is Tidying her Home and Tending her Soul (in Sensible Jackets)" mentions Thomas Moore's book Care of the Soul as one of the singer song-writer's "cultural must-haves". She says about Care of the Soul, "It makes you think about a dimension of life that most of us sense or feel but don’t necessarily articulate." She likes the suggestion that washing dishes by hand is a soulful art.

Now is the time to create a personal spirituality

At the beginning of July for his blog, Tom Rapsas writes, a 10 step guide to a more spiritually satisfying life, following suggestions from Thomas Moore in his book, A Religion of One's Own (2014). Rapsas writes, "This starts by taking a hard look at your daily schedule and carving out time to accomplish specific, simple tasks or mini-rituals throughout the day. These activities can both ground you and remind you that there is more to life than our daily chores or work."

Rapsas follows each of Moore's points with his own insights. Each of the ten practices may be explored during this pandemic.

Moore writes foreword to book about deep beauty

Deep Beauty: Experiencing Wonder When the World Is On Fire
Editors: Rosemary Winslow, Catherine Lee
Foreword: Thomas Moore
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Woodhall Press
ISBN-10: 1949116166
ISBN-13: 978-1949116168
The book's essays "... offer curious and thoughtful inquiries into experiences of wonder and beauty through the eyes of a diverse group of beholders, at a time when such considerations are often lacking from public discourse. These writers help create an emotional and psychological space for us to meditate on how peace, safety, compassion, and dignity are integral to a fulfilled and fulfilling life. These essays examine beauty from a number of different perspectives, including the arts, culture and counter-culture, the physical world (from our individual bodies to our embattled planet), successes and failures, remoteness, and spirituality."

Living a soulful life in an unsettled world

"We need to live our own deep and creative lives in troubled times 
and also do our part to improve society."

Southern Arizona Friends of Jung host Thomas Moore's lecture A Soulful Life in an Unsettled World on Sunday 16 February, 2020 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Tucson, Arizona at Grace St. Paul's Episcopal Church.
"Many people are anxious today about the unsettled nature of the world. They can’t sleep and some don’t want to bring children into this world. We need to live our own deep and creative lives in troubled times and also do our part to improve society. One important step for individuals is to be eccentricity and not participate fully in the values and styles of contemporary life, which obviously is moving in an unhealthy direction. We can also adopt a way of life that fosters inner richness and security. A good model is C. G. Jung, who shows how to use images and the methods of magic to live from a deep place. Jung’s way of dealing with the deep and hidden realm, demonstrated in his home, his studies in alchemy, and in the Red Book involve natural magic and guidance from the imaginal realm. He speaks of daimon and anima as guiding figures who help shape our lives around the richness and depth of soul."

Non-Members: $50
Seating is limited.

Celebrate profound reform: The Soul of Christmas

Today Franciscan Media shares a quote from Thomas Moore's perennial wisdom in The Soul of Christmas:
"People usually think of Christmas as a traditional and sentimental festival, but not as a celebration of the Jesus vision it commemorates: a philosophy of profound reform. The child lying in the manger would become perhaps the most radical of all spiritual visionaries, showing how to live more joyfully and communally. Many people today feel an underlying anxiety due to world events and the challenges of getting along in a complicated world. Christmas allows a break from that gray depression, an inner darkness reflected in the winter sky."

Moore in Chicago this week for C.G. Jung Institute

Meet Thomas Moore in Chicago this coming weekend at his event, An Enchanted Life, hosted by the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago.

Friday 18 October 2019:
Tau Center 26W171 Roosevelt Rd.
Wheaton, IL 60187

Myth, Daimon, and Angels: Finding Personal Power through Living Imagination
"Myth is the deep, partially hidden world of imaginal creatures inside us and around us. We all need the Muses for inspiration. Angels do exist, in a certain way, and keep us connected to the infinitely mysterious. Orenda, we learn from the Iroquois, is a power in us that we can’t live without. C. G. Jung gives a good example of a modern person who was able to live in close relationship to the powers appearing as images. We can each ease our way free, at least in part, from a cool, disenchanted culture to create a more soulful, magical way of doing things, thus coming alive in ourselves through a serious and direct approach to imagination."

A Magical Way of Life
"The word “magic” is largely out of favor in a rationalistic and technical world. The ancient European tradition known as magia naturalis, natural magic, influenced much of the art and other aspects of culture known as the Renaissance. It is based on using color, sounds, images, art works, craft, aromas, plants, and many other ordinary elements of daily life to nourish the soul. It also uses words for their power to have an impact and to give a person deep powers that are otherwise elusive. The main problem people have today, implicated in emotional malaise and even certain sicknesses, is a lack of personal power. Natural magic can bring that creative power into our lives—but we have to step away from the mechanical culture in which we live and return to an appreciation for magic. This workshop gives both the necessary ideas and certain practices that can restore this important aspect of the soulful life."

Fees: $135 Single Day / $200 Both Days / 4.5 CEs/ Day ($15)

Interview shares Moore's views of soulful living

New York psychotherapist Susan Lambert talks with Thomas Moore about "Cultivating the Soul in Every Aspect of Life" during this 37 minute audio episode of In the Balance. Listen as Lambert introduces themes from Care of the Soul, A Religion of One's Own, and Ageless Soul for Moore's responses and elaborations.

Start your spiritual practices as your own religion

For his Patheos blog, Wake Up Call: Insights & Musings to Stir Your Soul, Tom Rapsas offers "The Easy Guide to Starting Your Own Spiritual Practice". After describing Mirabai Starr's approach in her new book Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics, he mentions Thomas Moore:
"In his classic book A Religion of One’s Own, Thomas Moore recommends that we take the idea of spiritual practice a step further and schedule our days like those of a monk. This means setting specific, simple tasks to accomplish, not just in the morning, but throughout the day. This both grounds us and reminds us that there is more to life than our daily chores or job."
Rapsas then quotes Moore's book:
"Instead of just letting your days unfold spontaneously or being at the mercy of an inflexible busy schedule with family and work, you might set up a few regular activities, like meditation before breakfast, listening to music before lunch, being quiet after 10 p.m., eating simply in the morning and taking a quiet walk afterward."
Rapsas includes his own list of five activities that he tries to do daily. The post contains different suggestions that may contribute to your own creation of spiritual practices, especially if you're “spiritual-but-not-religious”.

Kripalu hosts Moore's weekend event in November

Thomas Moore offers his weekend program Ageless Soul: Creatively Navigate Life's Passages, Enjoy Growing Older, and Be Uniquely You at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Friday 8 November to Sunday 10 November, 2019. Tuition includes a paperback copy of Moore’s book Ageless Soul: The Lifelong Journey Towards Meaning and Joy.
"This weekend includes discussion, dream work, break-out groups, and brief “soul-meditations.” As a former monk who holds a PhD in religious studies, Thomas offers a deeply spiritual outlook on aging. He draws on 40 years as a psychotherapist to address intimate and difficult aspects of growing older, looking at the mythic and universally human experience of aging.
On the evening of Saturday 9 November at 7:30 p.m., Thomas Moore and Angela Farmer present The Alchemy of Time: Aging is Becoming Who You Are: "The secret to aging well is the understanding that all stages of your life exist in every moment. You are neither old nor young; you are everything, every moment compressed into the passing present. You are richer than you can imagine, more timeless than you can understand." This special evening event is free for in-house guests. No general public tickets are available.

Celebrate today: Read Moore's fatherhood essay

Read Thomas Moore's essay "Father's Day 2017" to celebrate fathers today and all people who are authority figures in our lives. Moore writes:
"I’ve been blessed to have several strong and effective father figures, men who have had the equanimity to offer paternal guidance when it was needed. For me it has made all the difference, and I celebrate those great father figures today."
Moore describes the archetype of father and why it is so needed in our world.

Read the description and register for the early bird price of $95 US until Sunday 12 May. The regular price after that date is $125 US.

As a book club member you receive:
— Two LIVE sessions and one pre-recorded meeting with Thomas
— Video recordings of all three meetings
— Audio recordings of all three meetings
— Interactive exercises and questions for each meeting
— Membership in an online community Hub for group interaction between meetings

— Full length interview with Thomas Moore exploring soul-level purpose
— An exclusive essay on soul-level purpose written just for Purpose Guides Institute
— Two small group meetings with Jonathan Gustin, book club host and Purpose Guides Institute founder.
“Soul-making is a journey that takes time, effort, skill, knowledge, intuition, and courage. It is helpful to know that all work with soul is process — alchemy, pilgrimage, and adventure — so that we don’t expect instant success or even any kind of finality. All goals and all endings are heuristic, important in their being imagined, but never literally fulfilled.” — Thomas Moore
