Let’s deepen and broaden the idea of “therapy.” Originally the word meant “to nurse, serve or care for.” We are all sometimes called to be a “therapist” for our friends, co-workers and family members. We can all learn from professional psychotherapy lessons in listening, talking and being present to another. Professional therapists might also benefit from a deepening of the concept of therapy. This presentation draws on C. G. Jung’s alchemical descriptions of therapy and transference and on James Hillman’s idea of therapy of the world. It is rooted in Plato’s classic definition of therapy in one of his dialogues. It is for both professional therapists and ordinary people who might want some guidance in speaking “therapeutically” to people they care about.
Thomas Moore, left home at an early age to study for the priesthood and become a monk. He has degrees in music composition and theology, as well as a Ph.D. in Religious Studies. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Care of the Soul and twenty-five other books. His latest is Soul Therapy: The Art and Craft of Caring Conversations. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife, artist Joan Hanley, and world musician daughter, Siobhán Moore (Ajeet). His stepson Abe is an architect in New York.
