How will we re-vision therapy for soul and spirit?
Pacifica Graduate Institute hosts its Climates of Change and the Therapy of Ideas conference, from April 21 to April 24, 2016 in Santa Barbara. Thomas Moore offers two presentations during this event.
Thursday 21 April 2016
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Psychotherapy as Religious Ritual
"This workshop explores how to make therapy less conceptual and more a direct relationship with figures of the past, dream events, and current mythologies and dramas of the psyche. It assumes “religion” to mean maintaining a potent relationship with the imaginal realm and finding portals to the mysterious others that play a formative role in the psyche."
Saturday 23 April 2016
4:15 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.
Animus Mundi - The Spirituality of the World
"We are moving toward a new definition of religion and new ways of finding sacred forms, rituals, teachings and methods. One important development is including concerns of the soul as well as the spirit. Soul and spirit is increasingly the focus in many psychotherapies. We can find models for re-visioning religion in C.G. Jung, D.H. Lawrence, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Emily Dickinson, Anne Sexton, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau."
17 Feb 2016 "A religion of one's own is our re-imagining religion"
16 Dec 2015 "Hear Animus Mundi: The Spirituality of the World"
14 Dec 2015 "Share ideas with each other for the anima mundi"
