Purpose Guides Institute Presents:
Invite your friends and family to explore Thomas’ powerful teachings with you.
Thomas Moore presents a revolutionary approach to thinking about daily life — everyday activities, events, problems and creative opportunities — that focuses on learning how to sense sacredness in even ordinary things.
This is an event that promises to deepen and broaden one’s perspective on life experiences and “soul-making.” Moore draws on his own experience as a therapist practicing care of the soul, as well as his studies of the world's religions and his work in music and art, to create this inspirational guide that examines the connections between spirituality and awakening individuals and society to a higher and more soulful purpose.
“Soul-making is a journey that takes time, effort, skill, knowledge, intuition, and courage. It is helpful to know that all work with soul is process—alchemy, pilgrimage, and adventure—so that we don’t expect instant success or even any kind of finality. All goals and all endings are heuristic, important in their being imagined, but never literally fulfilled.”
— Thomas Moore
In this special 60-minute event you’ll:
- Learn how to honor your physical, emotional and psychological symptoms as the voice of the soul.
- Receive ancient and modern wisdom on how to nourish the soul in everyday life.
- Explore the soul’s need for myth, ritual and spirituality.
- Discover the symmetry between care of the soul, and care of the soul of the world.
- Sharing dramatic episodes from his own life and psychotherapy practice, he’ll show us how the soul tries to communicate with us through shadow and illness.
- Hear about the upcoming two-session Book Club with Thomas Moore, which he will personally host on Thursdays, June 27 & July 11 at 5:30pm PST. We’ll be discussing Thomas’ #1 NYT bestseller, Care of the Soul: A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life.
Praise for Thomas Moore
“I soulfully recommend it without reservation.”
— John Bradshaw, author of Homecoming
“The sincerity, intelligence and style -- so beautifully clean -- of Tom Moore’s Care of the Soul truly moved me. The book’s got strength and class and soul, and I suspect may last longer than psychology itself.”
— James Hillman, author of Re-Visioning Psychology
“This book just may help you give up the futile quest for salvation and get down to the possible task of taking care of your soul. A modest, and therefore marvelous, book about the life of the spirit.”
— Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly
