Seats available for Thomas Moore's Seminar

The New England Education Institute tells me that places are available for Thomas Moore’s summer seminar, The Life of a Healer: Dealing Effectively with Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Maladies scheduled for August 15 - 19 2005 at the Four Points by Sheraton, Route 6, Eastham, Massachusetts. The Institute’s summer symposia are primarily for mental health professionals but anyone interested in the topics may attend. Register online or by mail.
In 1998, Thomas Moore presented a Cape Cod seminar sponsored by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, called, "The Soul in Psychotherapy" which Tom O’Connell describes on his web site. O’Connell’s involvement with addiction recovery colours his outline — Thomas Moore’s observations were offered to a large audience with varied interests. During his presentation on the last morning, Thomas Moore suggested ten ways for anyone to live soulfully:
1. Love from a deep place.
2. Read nourishing literature.
3. Develop friendships with a few in whom you may confide.
4. See beyond credentials and honours.
5. Be an individual.
6. Work hard, beware of busy-ness.
7. Cultivate Eros, not Logos as your driving force.
8. Tend your home to be your anchor.
9. Be sexual in your own way, in your own time.
10. Be religious and secular with passion and piety.
