Moore talks about New England spirituality in NH

Mariposa Museum
Mariposa Museum in Peterborough, New Hampshire hosts Thomas Moore on Friday 9 August, 2013 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for his presentation, Thoreau, Emerson, and Emily Dickinson—A New England Spirituality for Our Times:
"Thoreau built a cabin at Walden Pond, Emerson quit his role as minister and created his own priestly way of life, and Emily Dickinson stayed home, seeing her family, house and garden as the world in miniature. Each created a sacred way of life outside of yet influenced by religious traditions. In this special presentation to his neighbors, best-selling author Thomas Moore (Care of the Soul, Soul Mates) draws on 19th century writings to suggest an American spirituality for our own era, at a time when people are abandoning religion for spirituality."
Admission: Adult $20, Member $16

Moore recommends honouring each woman's juno

In his July-August 2013 column for Spirituality & Health magazine, "An Ancient, Divine Feminism", Thomas Moore turns to the Romans and their associations with the goddess Juno:
"The genius felt in the presence of a woman was called juno, after the great goddess. Juno was the protector of women throughout their lives: in their youth, during their time as brides, and then as they moved into motherhood. Every woman had her juno that she celebrated the same day as her birthday.
Although it’s unusual to turn to the Romans for inspiration for our spirituality today, the notion that every woman has her juno is a rich one. It could help us honor and respect femininity, gaining perspective on what it means to be a woman. We could distinguish between the feminine spirit in each woman and her individual personality. Because whether you’re male or female, when you stand next to a woman, you can sense the presence of a spirit. The quality of this spirit may vary somewhat, because women have moments that are businesslike, maternal, artistic, girlish, sexy, or an interesting blend of all of these."
Moore shares, "I have always believed that women will be equal and free only when the feminine itself, the juno spirit, is acknowledged and given real honor. I suspect that men have more trouble with the juno than with women. They are generally afraid of its power, perhaps because they, too, have lost touch with the genius that lives within them. "

Moore joins free teleseminar with The Soul of Sex

Thomas Moore talks about The Soul of Sex in a free teleseminar on Wednesday 10 July 2013 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m EDT for The Shakti Summit: Sensuality, Sex and the Sacred. Other speakers include John Gray, Sally Kempton and Sera Beak.

Host Lisa Schrader promotes the program: "Too often, our SHAKTI gets buried under piles of obligations and a laundry list of 'shoulds.' As women, it’s especially imperative to learn to nurture and expand our authentic feminine energy. We can’t run on adrenaline and testosterone without extinguishing our natural essence.
The rhythms of a female body and soul require a more sensuous fuel to truly feel the joy, love and beauty of being alive."
Registration is free. Invite your friends to listen, too.
