Curing sadomasochism through transformation

Spring Publications announces the third revised edition of Thomas Moore's DARK EROS: Curing the Sadomasochism in Everyday Life  available for purchase. This edition contains a foreword by Adolf Guggenbühl-Craig and a new afterword by Moore. He writes:
"The Marquis de Sade wrote obscene and disgusting books — I don’t call them novels — that are dismissed and condemned when read literally. But if you can treat everything he writes as metaphor, as an image speaking about a more subtle level of experience, you may find that Sade is a psychoanalyst far ahead of his time. It’s as though he writes in code, asking you not to read him simplistically, but to explore the largely hidden human desires we all have for things like revenge, secrecy, control, and manipulation. Just because we think them doesn’t mean that we act on them. But the dark thoughts and feelings are significant and require our acceptance. We may think that psychology helps us get free of such negative emotions, but Sade tricks us into seeing them not only as necessary but, in a deeply felt way, desirable."

Watch Moore's PBS Special about Christmas soul

In his recent Patheos column, "The Joys of Finding Christmas Within", Tom Rapsas quotes Thomas Moore's book The Soul of Christmas about being a mystic.

Rapsas writes,"Moore tells us 'We are all potential mystics' able to achieve a direct connection with a power greater than ourselves. And it doesn’t have to be that hard. 'Just stand still in the presence of a beautiful sunset and your mysticism will be activated.'"

Moore's book about Christmas and the winter solstice, The Soul of Christmas shares how this time of year is for everyone, not just for the followers of Jesus. His 1997 PBS special about Christmas with the late Scottish musician Johnny Cunningham, featuring traditional Celtic music may be watched now on YouTube:

At eighty-two, and freed by Zoom from having to travel to audiences around the world (they now come to him, online), he was gracious, generous, and sparkling with insight. We explored the deep experiences of loss, absence, and emptiness. We also spoke of his old friend and mentor, James Hillman, another 'Soul man.'"

Therapists invited to attend Zoom presentation

Friends of Jung South hosts Thomas Moore on Zoom, Saturday 6 May, 2023 for his presentation Soul Therapy: The Art and Craft of Caring Conversations from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET.

"Participants will be able to:
— Appreciate the origins of the word “therapy” and its root meaning.
— Develop a sophisticated understanding of narrative, image, symbol, and myth in the context of therapy.
— Learn skills for creating a vessel or container in which another person may feel free and supported in exploring one's past and one's possibilities.
— Describe implications for clinical counseling and the therapeutic process."
"Therapy is largely about narrative and image, and it helps if the professional therapist is sophisticated about both of these things, as well as about transference, which this presentation will explore in some original ways. 
Therapy involves one person who has lived fully and has dealt with life effectively, and another open to becoming more complex and individual. Therapy can happen outside professional context, as when a parent deals therapeutically with a child who is acting out, or when a teacher helps a student handle emotions and relationships. Here, the relationship is much like what the Irish have called Anam Cara, a guiding, caring friend. 
In this time together, we will engage each other in memories of therapy and issues that can get in the way. We will also explore ways to prepare for this work and ways a therapist can care for himself or herself."

Register for free summit with Moore on Mar. 31

Thomas Moore is a featured speaker during JungPlatform's Narcissism FREE Summit that starts Thursday 30 March 2023. Moore is the first speaker on Day 2 at 9:00 am PT  (12:00 pm ET).
"Thomas Moore uses the myth of Narcissus as his guide. Narcissism is the lack and felt need for self-love and appreciation. As a symptom, it points to what is needed. So the narcissistic person shows his or her pain by being a pain to others. He tries to coerce others to see and appreciate himself. In the myth (Ovid) Narcissus at first is hard like marble and doesn’t respond to his friends. But he reflects on himself in a pool of water, at first not knowing the image is of himself. Then he discovers for himself that he is lovable. He turns into a flower, which is the opposite of marble. Ovid’s Metamorphoses always presents a special, metaphorical transformation. So a narcissist needs love. He isn’t full of self-love, he is empty of it."
His topic is Lack of Soul in Narcissism.

In this session you will learn:
* What’s meant by “a sense of soul”
* What happens when we’re disconnected from the soul
* How can we restore a sense of soul in our daily lives

Registration is free.

"Moore gently prods us to consider that our constant multitasking may not be getting us anywhere. Listening to a podcast while taking a walk, or scanning an email while pushing a baby stroller, may mean missing the heart and soul of what is all around us, available to us anytime, no matter our circumstances. The awareness and embrace of the ubiquitous emptiness in our world and in our own lives, the daily recognition of quiet spaciousness, is not a retreat from reality but a rich and full welcome to all that is most meaningful and real."

"This e-course doesn’t “psychologize” fairy tales, as some writers do, but instead looks for the codes and patterns that shed light, in a way that old fairy tales can, on being human. Reading them, reflecting upon them, and discussing them, we discover fresh angles on the human adventure, plus many examples of clever and magical powers useful when we are facing overwhelming obstacles."

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

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 talks about our current times, helpful approaches, and historical aids. He shares personal stories to illustrate his insights and he answers questions posed by those attending the live event. 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."

Rhythms, episodes, cadences, fugues in psyche

South Africa's Centre for Applied Jungian Studies offers its eight-week online Jungian Music Program starting Saturday 24 October, 2020 through its newly formed Jungian School of Music and Psyche.

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."
