Who I am

  I  am thrilled to have been accepted into BARQUE.I could possibily give you a list of the careers I've had  etc . but what i will say about myself is that i am in, going through a period of my life  which is unlike anything else I have experienced and the writings of Thomas Moore are lending credence and belief that  first, I am not alone, and second, that it is the best thing that could be happening as painful  and uprooting as it is.I would be happy to connect to anyone  for discussion…See More

Thomas Moore Biography

This amalgam is from various sources, including Thomas Moore's sites, and

Moore is an author, psychotherapist, musician and theologian, who lectures and writes in the areas of archetypal psychology, mythology, spiritual ecology and the arts.

He grew up in Detroit, Michigan with his parents and younger brother, Jim. At the age of thirteen, he entered a preparatory seminary for the Servite religious order and at nineteen, travelled to Ireland where he studied philosophy for two years before returning to the Chicago area to focus on musical studies. Moore left the order before possible ordination as a priest, twelve years after entering the seminary.

He spent several years studying music, religion and philosophy, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in music and philosophy from Chicago's DePaul University, a Master of Arts degree in musicology from the University of Michigan, a Master of Arts degree in theology from the University of Windsor, Ontario, and in 1975, a Doctor of Philosophy degree in religion from Syracuse University.

After teaching psychology for a year at Glassboro State College in New Jersey, he was a professor of religion at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Moore spent sixteen years in private psychotherapy practice and has been a writer, lecturer and seminar leader. While in Dallas, he taught and studied with The Dallas Institute for Humanities and Culture, where colleagues included James Hillman, Patricia Berry, Robert Sardello, Gail Thomas, Ivan Illich, and Rafael Lopez-Pedraza.

In 1985, he left Texas to work in New England and taught part-time at Lesley College in Cambridge, Massechusetts. In 1987, he helped to create the Institute for the Study of Imagination in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts, "to encourage study into the imaginal dimensions of individual and cultural life."

Moore published his best-selling book, Care of the Soul in 1992. Other books include The Planets Within, Dark Eros, Soul Mates, The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life, The Soul's Religion and Dark Nights of the Soul, awarded the 2006 Best Psychology Book at the Books for a Better Life ceremony in New York City. His book A Life at Work became available in 2008. The next year Hay House released his book Writing in the Sand: Jesus & the Soul of the Gospels. In 2010 Hay House published Care of the Soul in Medicine and Moore's collection of short stories The Guru of Golf.

Moore published A Religion of One's Own in 2014 and his translation of the four canonical gospels with commentary kicks off with Gospel: The Book of Matthew in 2016.

People who have influenced Moore include Lao Tzu, Heraclitus, Ovid, Marsilio Ficino, Rumi, Paracelsus, Nicolas of Cusa, Johann Sebastian Bach, the Marquis de Sade, William Blake, Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, William Morris, Oscar Wilde, Igor Stravinsky, Samuel Beckett, Carl Jung, James Hillman, Anne Sexton, Norman O. Brown, Wallace Stevens, and Shunryu Suzuki.

Moore often teaches with his wife Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa, author of Art & Yoga: Kundalini Awakening in Everyday Life. The family lives in New Hampshire.
