A religion of one's own is our re-imaging religion

Animus Mundi: The Spirituality of the World 
Thomas Moore — Friday 22 April 2016
Climates of Change and the Therapy of Ideas

"As the culture quickly becomes more secularized, the state of religion and spirituality is in crisis. Suddenly we have to re-imagine what religion is all about or give up on it. We are moving toward a more soulless world because the soul thrives on the holy — a recognition of a non-human dimension in all we do. Today many people prefer to speak of spirituality rather than religion. Understandably, they want a more personal and more sophisticated way of being spiritual. Many may seek this through their psychotherapy. We are moving toward a new definition of religion and new ways of finding sacred forms, rituals, teachings and methods. One important development is including concerns of the soul as well as the spirit. Soul and spirit is increasingly the focus in many psychotherapies. We can find models for re-visioning religion in C.G. Jung, D.H. Lawrence, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Emily Dickinson, Anne Sexton, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau."

The Monadnock Ledger-Transcript shares "Moore to speak at fireside chat" that describes Moore's presentation Becoming a Soulful Person in a Soulful World at High Mowing School.
"The talk will describe elements of self-directed spirituality for which Moore’s 1992 book, Care of the Soul, is acclaimed and will focus on the spiritual needs of adolescents and emerging adults to find meaning, play an active role in the community and nurture “a relation with the mysterious and transcendent.”
“We don’t teach these things much, and yet they have to be learned,” Moore adds. “You have a choice: either you find deep joy in an awakened life or you suffer the depression and acting-out that come from the absence of meaning. This conversation is for parents, teachers and students as together we take the route of joy.”

Read Thomas Moore's column from the 2012 September-October issue of Spirituality & Health magazine: "The Spiritual Practice of Study". He writes, "In my spiritual life, study is perhaps my most important practice. It’s my way of remaining a monk. And I’m worried that it isn’t more widely prized and practiced. If there is one thing I find lacking in the spirituality I come across in my travels, it’s a studied intelligence and sharp wit about things of the spirit."
