Reimagining A Religion That Feeds Your Soul with Thomas Moore, Ph.D.

Thomas MooreChurch attendance continues to decline as many of us abandon the religious institutions of our youth. However, in today’s culture the search for the sacred has never been more active. Thomas Moore suggests that nature, art, and accessing the wealth of traditional spiritual wisdom can be of enormous help in revivifying our relationship to religion. We need to abandon the dogma and set our compass according to our personal values and philosophy as we search for a religion that feeds our soul. He says, “This is the time to stop looking for an answer outside yourself, looking for an organization that will answer your needs completely or answer them through your joining them and subscribing to their beliefs and their practices and their way of looking at the world. I think that time is over…We have to do that ourselves…It’s also a responsibility and it is more difficult.” He advises that we not settle for an “off the rack” philosophy for our lives and that religion needs to be rooted in one’s individual and unique experience.
