Experiencing Deep Love: by Honoring the Profound Differences between Unique People
Friday evening lecture: Most of us hunger for intimacy and at the same struggle for happiness in relationship. Thomas Moore’s Soul Mates came out in the early ’90’s, suggesting that we might be better off bringing soul to marriage and partnerships than seeing love as a problem to be solved. We might appreciate imperfection and honor each other’s mysterious natures and destinies.
This lecture aims at happiness together and yet give a place to disillusionment, anger, misunderstanding and thoughts of giving up. It finds opportunity in the confusing longing in most people for both intimacy and separateness, and suggests that marriage is a sharing of differences. Ultimately it’s a matter of seeing love as complex and transforming.
Thomas also examines the narratives and images we take from our parents and other important people and bring them to our adult loves. He looks at the shadow of love, the “self-centered” and neurotic motives we bring to it, with the idea of transforming these matters into soul.
