S&P establishes a centre in Claremont, California

In today's email message, Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat co-directors of Spirituality & Practice announce that they are moving:
". . . in September from New York City to Claremont, California. We are establishing a Center for Spirituality & Practice affiliated with the Claremont School of Theology (CST).
CST has Methodist roots, an ecumenical history, and an interreligious vision. Our discussions with the CST leadership and spirituality faculty have convinced us that collaborating with them will enable us to expand the ways we apply spiritual practices where they are needed in our times."
Thomas Moore, whom they describe as "a pioneer explorer of the sacred art of soulful living," supporting this decision to move, responds to the Spirituality & Practice announcement in this short video. (Moore also shares one of his current writing projects.)

On site or insight, bring hard hats and hammers

Is your soul under construction? Thomas Moore writes about this possibility in his July-August column for Spirituality & Health magazine. After sharing a dream from a particularly intense period of his life, he includes:
"I have heard similar dreams from clients over the years, and I have come to realize that it helps to know when something in you is being built. You can then better understand the unusual feelings of being incomplete and going through unintended changes. You may feel your world shifting and not yet ready for projects and developments in your life. You may need to prepare for the arrival of a relatively new self." 
Moore concludes that such dream times may be "full of promise and the occasion for hope."
