Spirituality and Practice course is on-demand

Spirituality and is offering its 40-part e-course, Practicing Spirituality with Thomas Moore, on an on-demand basis. It initially ran during the Spring of 2008.

Now, after "you click on the 'subscribe' button, you will be taken through a sign-up process during which you can choose to pay the $19.95 U.S. fee by credit card or check. You'll be emailed a receipt with a link to your 'account page' where you can choose when you'd like the e-course to begin and how frequently (daily, twice a week, three times a week, or weekly) you would like to receive it."

The lessons are from a number of Moore’s books — each part consists of a quoted passage, including the source of the quote, and a recommended spiritual activity to reinforce the teaching.

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat write, "We have long appreciated Moore's recipes for soulful living. He helps us see that we can learn from our flaws, follies, and tragedies. He correctly proclaims that soul cannot be separated from body, family, work, love, politics, or power. By challenging us to care for our souls, Moore draws a bead on the bounties of spirituality. In the end, he calls us to our true vocation — to care for the world's soul and to celebrate the sacred arts of life."
