Let's appreciate body-soul-spirit relationships

Thomas Moore posts "Psychology with a Soul" on his blog and invites feedback on his public Facebook page. In this entry he describes his daughter's search for a graduate program that satisfies her need for "a graduate program in psychology where she can pursue her interest in the arts, Jung, archetypal psychology and yoga as a combined resource for her work with adolescents in trouble." Moore writes,
"My daughter has a sharp mind and quick wit, but she doesn’t have patience with the materialistic approach to education. For better or worse, she grew up in a household where art, yoga and the soul are all taken seriously and where a human being is understood to be made up of a body, soul and spirit. Is it too much to ask for a reliable psychology program, recognized as valid and valuable by the society, with a soul?"
Read Moore's concerns and share your responses on his public Facebook page linked above.
