Your Mission in Life: Care of Body, Soul, Spirit and World
April 14, 2014
7:00 p.m. - Fine Arts Building, Greenhoe Theater
Twenty years ago Thomas Moore published "Care of the Soul", a fresh view, rooted in ancient philosophies, on what life is all about. In his first visit to Landmark he will talk about the distinction he makes between being spiritual and being soulful. He encourages us to cultivate both. He wants us to live our lives from the depths of the heart, pursuing our own destinies with our gifts and limitations.
Thomas Moore is the author of the classic bestseller "Care of the Soul", a number one New York Times bestseller, and nineteen other books.. He has been a monk, a musician, a university professor, and, for over thirty years, a psychotherapist practicing archetypal therapy with a spiritual dimension. His books appear in over twenty-five languages and he lectures in many parts of the world. For fifteen years he has taught psychiatrists and has worked closely with medical schools, hospices, and hospitals. He also speaks often at C. G. Jung societies. He has a Ph.D. in Religion from Syracuse University, an honorary doctorate from Lesley University and the Einstein Humanitarian Award from Yeshiva University. Three of his books have won the Books for a Better Life award. He writes regularly for Spirituality & Health Magazine, and The Huffington Post. His most recent books are "A Religion of One’s Own", "Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels" and "The Guru of Golf and other Stories about the Game of Life". He considers himself a new brand of theologian, drawing from many traditions as well as “secular” literature and arts. He is widely known for his efforts to promote and deepen spirituality and make a more soulful society.
