Thomas Moore on Soul Mates - Jung Society of  Utah Season 8 Opener

The Jung Society of Utah is excited to welcome Thomas Moore on October 21st and 22nd for our spectacular Season 8 opener! Mark your calendar to join us for this soulful weekend!

Friday evening lecture

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.

About the speaker: Thomas Moore published his classic Care of the Soul in 1992, followed by Soul Mates in 1994. He has written twenty books on spirituality, sexuality, myth, religion, and depth psychology. His books have been translated into thirty languages. He has taught religious studies and psychology and has been a psychotherapist for over 30 years.

Notes of Interest      


Interview: Thomas Moore on Creating Soulful Relationships
The Art of Cowry Shell Divination with Malidoma Somé 
Season 7 Finale with Malidoma Som é
"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."

Malidoma Som é spoke about gift and purpose, and how "trouble" can serve as a guide that gives us direction along our individual path. Trouble can be "what pushes us to the edge, because the edge is where the psyche expands enough to awaken to our gifts...The blessing of trouble is that it hides an opportunity for healing."
