Noted author Thomas Moore will visit Mercyhurst College on Tuesday, Oct. 9, to share his insights on “Living a Soul-full Life in a Soul-full World.”
Moore is the author of The New York Times bestselling book "Care of the Soul" and 15 other books on deepening spirituality and cultivating soul in every aspect of life.
He has been a monk, a musician, a university professor and a psychotherapist, and today he lectures widely on holistic medicine, spirituality, psychotherapy and ecology.
He also writes fiction and music and often works with his wife, artist and yoga instructor Joan Hanley.
He writes regular columns for Resurgence, Spirituality & Health, and Beliefnet.com. His column on that Internet site, “The Soul in Love,” answers questions about love, sex, and the soul.
He has two children and lives in New England.
Moore’s presentation is sponsored by Mercyhurst’s Distinguished Speakers Series, with support from the Dr. Martha Haley Lecture Series, the Louis Tullio Society Lecture Fund, Mrs. Audrey Hirt and the college’s departments of psychology and religious studies.
His talk begins at 8 p.m. in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center, and is free and open to the public. A book-signing will follow on the PAC stage.
Those attending the lecture will also enjoy live jazz by the Jim Madden Trio.
