Spring celebrates Irish culture and psychology

The latest issue of Spring: A Journal of Archetype and Culture, Vol. 79, focuses on the theme of "Irish Culture & Depth Psychology". It includes an interview with Thomas Moore; an excerpt, introduced by Moore, from the work of the late Irish writer John Moriarty; and an article about W.B. Yeats by James Hollis. Barque reported this publication in a post early last year.

According to author biographies provided, Thomas Moore’s "grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Ireland, and he has lived, traveled, and taught frequently throughout Ireland."

The New York Center for Jungian Studies plans two study tour programs in Ireland:
March 26 – April 2, 2009
Dublin and Galway
“The Archetype of Home”

April 19-26, 2009
County Mayo and Sligo
A Study/Tour in Celtic Mythology

They are open to the general public as well as mental health professionals (Continuing Education credits are available).

Houston hosts talk about soulful spirituality

This Thursday 29 January at 7 p.m., Thomas Moore talks about "Deepening Our Spiritual Life" at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas. St. Mark's is located at 3816 Bellaire Blvd., between Stella Link/Weslayan and Buffalo Speedway. Contact the church office at 713 664-3466 for more information. Although this event is free, a $10 donation is suggested to help defray expenses. The presentation is sponsored by Memorial Hermann Hospital.

Moore says, "Talk about spirituality usually aims rather high: the pursuit of virtue, knowing the mysteries, self-improvement, the perfect person and the perfect community. But spirituality also needs depth: emotional substance, spirituality in the world and in everyday life, and a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the teachings. In other words, spirit needs soul. In this gathering, we'll consider concrete ways to become 'soulfully' spiritual."

Moore shares richness of stories in Ottawa

Web sites of the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association and the Unitarian Universalist Ministers of Canada promote conference activities for 11-16 November 2009 in Ottawa, Canada.

Thomas Moore headlines this event:
Tell a tale ... Touch a life ... Transform the world ...
"This year's CONVO is deeply rooted in the belief that our stories are foundational in our lives and are containers for our meaning. As we hear the stories of other people we begin to understand why these people are the way they are in this world... All sessions and worship will be rooted in the story medium. There will be opportunities to attend workshops which will help you learn about storytelling - how to tell a story and how to make it your own."
During the week-long conference, Moore will speak to the entire group for a total of four hours about leadership. Twenty-five lucky registrants, chosen "by lottery of those who sign up during the regular registration period" will receive an additional in-depth workshop of 12 hours with Moore throughout the week.

Registration opens online 10 January 2009.
No on-site registrations will be accepted.
