BESTSELLING spiritual writer and psychotherapist THOMAS MOORE (author of CARE OF THE SOUL) will visit to discuss his latest book, A RELIGION OF ONE'S OWN [*Updated*]

On Friday, April 4th at 7 pm, The New York Times bestselling author and trusted spiritual adviser Thomas Moore will be in the store to discuss and sign copies of his latest book, A Religion of One’s Own.

A Religion of One’s Own is a follow-up to his classic Care of the Soul, which two decades ago touched a chord with millions of readers yearning to integrate spirituality into their everyday lives. Moore believes that something essential is missing from modern life. Many who’ve turned away from religious institutions—and others who have lived wholly without religion—hunger for more than what contemporary secular life has to offer but are reluctant to follow organized religion’s strict and often inflexible path to spirituality. In this new book, Moore explores the myriad possibilities of creating a personal spiritual style, either inside or outside formal religion. A Religion of One’s Own points the way to crafting an amplified inner life and a world of greater purpose, meaning, and reflection.

Thomas Moore was a monk for twelve years, a musician, a university professor, and a psychotherapist. He writes regularly for Psychology Today, The Huffington Post, Spirituality & Health, and Resurgence Magazine. He lectures widely on holistic medicine, spirituality, psychotherapy, and the arts. Moore has been awarded numerous honors, including the Humanitarian Award from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and an honorary doctorate from Lesley University. Thomas is the author of eighteen previous books, including Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, and Dark Nights of the Soul. He lives in New Hampshire. To learn more about Moore and his impressive body of work, visit his website
