Spiritual Practice Beyond Institutional Religion and Secularism
As much as science tries to answer all our questions and technology tries to make life easier, there is always a part of us that hungers for something greater. "We have souls that need meaning and purpose as much as the body needs food and water," says Thomas Moore. With A Personal Spirituality, this respected teacher presents a guide for cultivating your own practice and faith - not based on laws etched in rigid tradition but on your inner yearning for wisdom and truth.
How to Let Your Soul Guide Your Spiritual Practice
"The gift of spirituality is not to provide an escape from the world," teaches Moore. "Its power is to take us so deep into the wonder of everyday life that we are fully absorbed, motivated, and inspired." In these sessions he reveals the key steps for developing a deeply engaged practice that arises from your unique perspective and gifts. Here he illuminates the sacred aspect of relationships and sexuality; examines the shadow sides of both spirituality and secularism; offers guidance for relating to the timeless wisdom of religious traditions; and reveals how beauty, art, and deep intuition can serve as your greatest guides and teachers.
"I believe many of us are shifting toward a more intense, substantive spirituality," says Moore. "In this time of unprecedented connection, we have the opportunity to make better spiritual lives than we did before." A Personal Spirituality is a powerful call to find a spiritual path that honors both your rational intelligence and the imperatives of your soul.

Brilliant listening Thomas Moore's ideas on creating a practical spirituality. Great for those seeking the Divine but without the baggage of organised religion and tradition. Many wonderful thoughts to explore. Love this quote by John Cage on the need to empty ourself in order to be filled, "Thoreau got up each morning and walked to the woods as though he had never been where he was going to, so that whatever was there came to him like liquid into an empty glass".
Warm, personal and calm communication
Uplifting yet challenging
Practical yet holy, with deep heart wisdom
"Great wisdom for Life!"
Now my favorite Moore book! Being honest I have struggled with some other Thomas because I have been left hanging, wanting more thorough development of a topic. However this book seems to be different on that regard. Also I have found it extremely practical chalked full of wisdom gold nuggets. It is a great reference for life. The only disappointment, however minor, is that he does not talk about God except to make reference of God. He does however fully explore the subject of individual spirituality, and that I found very insightful.
"good for anyone who is spiritually seeking."
love his work long been a follower.
All ways a good teacher! Highly suggest. any of the books he has written.
