Something essential may be missing from modern life. Many who have 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 'A Religion of One's Own,' best-selling author and former monk Thomas Moore explores the myriad possibilities of creating a personal spiritual style, either inside or outside formal religion.
Thomas Moore was a monk for 12 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 18 previous books, including 'Care of the Soul,' 'Soul Mates,' and 'Dark Nights of the Soul.' He lives in New Hampshire.
