S&P hosts Moore's June e-course: Soulful Aging

Register for Thomas Moore's new e-course Soulful Aging with Spirituality & Practice, that is live from Monday 5 June to Friday 30 June, 2017. This course introduces Moore's new book, Ageless Soul to be released by St. Martin's Press in October 2017. Please  pre-order the book now to ensure delivery.
This Spirituality & Practice "e-course focuses not on the externals of aging — finances, physical health practices, and retirement arrangements — but on the inner ones — spirituality, eroticism, meaningful work and retirement, and especially the emotional and character developments that make you a real individual.
Along the way, we consider loneliness, legacy, youthfulness, anger, melancholy, being an elder, and a meaningful ending of life. One point strongly made is that we age best by first being straight about the fact of getting older and then, and only then, by trying to be youthful, too."
During the e-course you receive an email on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week during June. They  include:
— Thomas Moore's written reflections, some accompanied by videos, on soulful aging;
— Creative practice suggestions that help you look at the arc of your own life over time;
— An opportunity to participate in a one-hour teleconference with Thomas Moore (date/time to be announced);
— An invitation to participate in a Practice Circle available 24/7 for you to share with others in a worldwide community and to receive further guidance from Thomas Moore.

Register online now for $59.95. Consider this course as a gift for someone special — perhaps for Mother's Day or as an early Father's Day treat to be shared.

His first speaker on 26 April 2017 was Thomas Moore. Each interview is available only for three days, however Urban has announced "... there will be a 3-day replay period for all the interviews at the end of the summit!" At that time Moore's 45-minute offering again will be available for viewing. If you register now after clicking the link above, you will be able to  access the last three interviews and the eight new interviews before all 21 interviews are available.
Urban describes his interview with Moore:
"I love how at every turn in this conversation, Thomas brings a totally unconventional perspective to each subject we touch on. In this interview, you’ll learn to begin reading your life metaphorically for the messages of soul that are all around us. By being open to the signs of your life, by 'reading your world' and 'seeing through' to the symbolic meaning of events and circumstances, 'you’re freed from the shackles of literalism.'”
