Glastonbury Abbey hosts Thomas Moore, May 12

Editor's Note: New start time.
On Thursday 12 May 2016, from 7:15 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Meet Thomas Moore at Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham, Massachusetts.

Moore's latest book is GOSPEL The Book of Matthew: A New Translation with Commentary, Jesus Spirituality for Everyone.

"He will discuss his new book GOSPEL The Book of Matthew: A New Translation with Commentary. With brand new language, Moore highlights a powerful call for change. The Gospels are often read as moralistic codes that produce guilt and fear. As a result of this strict perception, the use of these texts has often been limited to a Christian audience. However, the Gospels have a message for anyone interested in enriching their lives. Moore offers the Gospels as a passport to a way for the future — not a belief system or a church or a religion, but a way of being in the world, open and accepting." Glastonbury Abbey May Newsletter

Moore talks of spirit, soul, religion, trust, nature

Watch Bonnie Bright, founder of Depth Psychology Alliance and a graduate of Pacifica Graduate Institute, interview Thomas Moore: Spirit, Soul, and the Secular for the Institute. This half-hour Skype video, uploaded 23 March 2016, touches on shared interests and key ideas in Moore's new book, A Religion of One's Own.

In the blog post related to this video, Bright writes, "I felt a growing realization as Thomas talked about being human, a reminder that the root of the word human is related to humus which is related to the earth itself. There is no “inside” and “outside,” just as Thomas said. Everything is connected. When I mentioned this to him, he reminded me that James Hillman, with whom Moore was friends for 38 years, believed that soul is in everything."

Open to the mysteries without need for explanation

Listen to Thomas Moore deeply respond to Tami Simon's questions in their conversation Standing for the Spiritual, in a Secular World dated Sunday 10 April, 2016. Moore has worked with Simon's company Sounds True on a variety of projects over a long period of time — Sounds True recently released Moore's 6-CD learning program, A Personal Spirituality: Finding Your Own Way to a Meaningful Life. Simon addresses this program's themes while also asking questions based on Moore's recent book A Religion of One's Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World.

Moore talks about:
— articulating where you are before making a major change
— spirituality as transcending what we can see, measure or control
— living in a broad range of time, not just "now"
— knowing the necessity of betrayal/ transgression to mature
— the Jesus teaching to love people not in your circle
— the courage to take a stand

This podcast is approximately 68 minutes.

Embrace aging as a natural process with insights

Thomas Moore teams up with Nancy Slonim Aronie to present the weekend program Aging with Soul at Kripalu Center, from Friday Nov. 18 to Sunday Nov. 20, 2016. According to the description:
"No matter how old — or young — you are, there’s still time to transform the way you think about aging. Getting older can be a soul-changing experience, a lifelong journey of discovery in which you move toward greater fulfillment and self-realization. This weekend, we look at aging in a whole new light, and discover it can be so much more than merely piling up the years and the physical changes they bring. Thomas Moore’s paradigm-shifting teachings, based on his forthcoming book, Aging with Soul, are enhanced by writer and NPR commentator Nancy Slonim Aronie, who offers evocative writing prompts and shares poetry by Peggy Freydberg, who began writing poems at age 90."
"This multigenerational workshop is for everyone; bring your parents or adult children. When you cultivate both the spirit of youth and the advantages of getting older, you benefit in every aspect of your life."
Tuition: $275.00
Cost for room and meals is based on your accommodation selection.

"Recognize aging as a process through which you become a more interesting, emotionally intelligent, sensitive, wiser, and more creative person."
