Saint John's On The Lake 2nd Spirituality and Aging Symposium, Creative Age: Imagination, Insight, Wisdom is planned for 10-14 March 2019 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Check out the Schedule of Events and register.
Thomas Moore speaks on Wednesday 13 March 2019:
CARE OF THE AGING SOUL
Author, Ageless Soul: The Lifelong Journey toward Meaning and Joy
"Spirituality is complete and good for humans only if it is joined to the deep soul. Soul is highly individual. Some older people want to follow their traditions, which is best done with some updating. Others might prefer a natural spirituality that includes contemplative walking, personal prayer, family rituals, and a practice of art. Older people benefit from a dreamier way of being: Less heroic, less rationalistic and highly intuitive. This, too, enriches the spiritual life. Loneliness, sickness and anger may be part of growing older, but they can be converted into positive experiences. Sexuality, too, takes new forms. The main task is to age all life long in a positive way, becoming a unique, creative person."
At the close of this session the participant will be able to:
- Describe how soul differs from spirit and how the two richly intersect
- Demonstrate how to use both tradition and imagination in creating a senior spirituality
- Remember that night dreams and a “dreamier” everyday life help adjust to older years
- Explain how a soulful life deepens and enhances aging
Registration is $250 for the full symposium or $40 for Moore's event.

Kathleen Hirsch shares her conversation with Thomas Moore, recently published in the journal Anchor. Hirsch met with Moore for breakfast in Cambridge, Massachusetts before publication of Ageless Soul. Moore says:
“In the monastery, I learned that ‘to work is to pray.’ What you do is prayer. That got through to me. I’ve always viewed my individual work as drawing out a person’s inner excellence. This was what the Greeks meant when they used the word, ‘therapy,’ which they did quite a bit. Plotinus added the element of beauty. These are my sources. And my writing is my personal daily spiritual practice. As soon as I wake in the morning, I go to my desk.”
