Naropa hosts weekend workshop, Opus

Boulder, Colorado’s Naropa University hosts a non-credit weekend workshop with Thomas Moore, Opus: Finding Your Life Work, on Friday 21 November to Sunday 23 November, 2008.
"The workshop will include psychological, relational and spiritual aspects and will involve discussion, a personal inventory and dream work. Doing work that engages your mind, heart and soul is a first step to personal fulfillment, meaning and peace. But a life work is more than the right job. It involves reconciling with family influences, good and bad, surrounding work; dealing with past experiences of your own; and having a vision and a deep sense of values. It involves connecting the parts of your life: home, friends, neighbors, hobbies, sports, travel and a spiritual practice."
Registration for the full event is $325 U.S. with a 15% discount if you register by Friday 31 October ($276.25 U.S.). If attending only the Friday evening talk, the cost is $15 with a discount price of $10 for seniors and students.

Fri 21 Nov. . . . 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Sat 22 Nov. . . 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Sun 23 Nov. . . 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The link above allows you to register online. Register now at the reduced rate, before finalizing your Hallowe’en plans for this Friday.

BetterListen! sells four talks on iTunes

An earlier Barque post announced that BetterListen! offers Thomas Moore’s lecture, Humanizing Medicine, on iTunes. Three additional titles are available now as downloads. Next year, these four talks may be purchased on CD.

Humanizing Medicine
Time: 75 minutes
Thomas Moore talks about extending the scope of medicine to include "spirituality and deep matters of soul, emotions, fantasies, dreams, the physical healing environment, and the relationship of caregiver and patient."

The New Epicureans
Time: 118 minutes
Thomas Moore shares "the roots of his work and approach to philosophy and living," before exploring "how our sexually repressed society contributes to violence and dysfuntion in the current age."

A Magical Life
Time: 137 minutes
Thomas Moore "restates the principals of magicians in the past, who advised tapping into the less obvious, less mechanical, less literal potencies of nature. In this magic, we bring the heart into play and regard the most ordinary aspects of daily life in their sacredness."

Soul and Everyday Life
Time: 181 minutes
Thomas Moore considers this approach: "The soul is greater than the smallness of our problems and our pasts. It is a part of our whole experience of the universe, and caring for the soul is not about introspection. Nor is it about understanding the mistakes our parents made."

Visit BetterListen! for more information about buying these digital downloads of Thomas Moore.

Moore talks about United States election

Thomas Moore responds to a Barque Forum discussion about the presidential election in the United States. His response includes,
"I always think about the words we use. Politics is from polis, the assembly or community of citizens. Politics begins in each of us finding a way through our narcissism to making real and frequent contributions to the community. Today that has to include the global community. I've never understood American politicians making "national interest" the bottom line. It would be like any of us making our own self-interest the final criterion of our behavior."
. . .
"Elections say as much about the citizens as about the potential leaders. Our country has not done well in choosing leaders, and I think the main reason is that we do not truly educate our children. A democracy requires [an] educated citizenry that knows how to choose good leadership and is motivated by common cause. We are far from this ideal."

Spiritual principles to guide relationships

The Greater Keene Chamber of Commerce lists Thomas Moore’s Thursday 4 December, 2008 appearance at:
Best Western Sovereign Hotel
401 Winchester Street
Keene, New Hampshire
7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The Chamber's description for "Building Successful Relationships Using Spiritual Principles," says Moore "believes the only way to deal effectively with emotional problems is to include intelligent and open-minded explorations of spiritual life. Some aspects of spirituality are eternal and never change; others shift with cultural developments. According to Moore, we are in serious need of a spiritual intelligence equal to the complexity of life in the new century."

Sponsors of this free event are Antioch University New England's Applied Psychology Department and MAPS Counseling Services. For more information, contact:

Listening Presence
"A great deal is said about communication, which tends to mean rational and logical exchange. But the real trick is to listen to nuance, what is implied, and the mysterious material that can’t be spoken. This is soul to soul dialogue, essential in any counseling of depth and in any intimate conversation. Spiritual matters in particular rise out of the realms of mystery and require a receptive mind and heart that are open and free and in love with the unexpected."
