Friday evening lecture: Thomas Moore on Soul Mates, October 21st, 7pm

Most of us hunger for intimacy and at the same struggle for happiness in relationship. Thomas Moore's Soul Mates came out in the early 90s, suggesting that we might be better off bringing soul to marriage and partnerships than seeing love as a problem to be solved. We might appreciate imperfection and honor each other's mysterious natures and destinies.

This lecture aims at happiness together and yet gives a place to disillusionment, anger, misunderstanding and thoughts of giving up. It finds opportunity in the confusing longing in  most people for both intimacy and separateness, and suggests that marriage is a sharing of differences. Ultimately it's a matter of seeing love as complex and transforming.

Thomas also examines the narratives and images we take from our parents and other important people and bring them to our adult loves. He looks at the shadow of love, the "self-centered" and neurotic motives we bring to it, with the idea of transforming these matters into soul.

Dr. Aaron Kipnis: The Psychology of Money
"How can we know ourselves by ourselves? . . . Soul needs intimate connection, not only to individuate, but simply to live. For this we need relationships of the profoundest kind through which we can realize ourselves, where self-revelation is possible, where interest in and love for soul is paramount."
- James Hillman

"A  soul mate is primarily someone with whom we have a soul connection," according to bestselling author  Thomas Moore. Although not everyone we meet is a soul mate, we can make all of our relationships more soulful.

The soul in relationship

"It's very important in keeping your soul alive to be attached, to be close to people, to get involved in the entanglements and complexities of life, to really allow yourself to enter life in all of its mess and confusion," Moore said. "That's what my friend and teacher  James Hillman used to say. "Soul is found in all the messes that we get ourselves into."

Money is much more than a piece of paper, a coin, plastic card or number in an account. It is also a psychological complex as powerful and multifaceted as any other in psychology. This Webinar is about the deep psychology of Money. We will discuss the various ways in which Money affects us, both individually and as an entire culture. The goal of the webinar is to become more aware of the ways in which Money can, often unconsciously, impact the major decisions and choices we make in life. What we can bring into consciousness has the potential to give us greater freedom and fulfillment in how we shape our lives. 

Cost: $79 with early bird discount until October 27th
$89 after October 27th.
