"The New York Times bestselling author and trusted spiritual adviser offers a follow-up to his classic Care of the Soul. 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 A Religion of One's Own, bestselling author and former monk Thomas Moore explores the myriad possibilities of creating a personal spiritual style, either inside or outside formal religion. Two decades ago, Moore's Care of the Soul touched a chord with millions of readers yearning to integrate spirituality into their everyday lives. In A Religion of One's Own, Moore expands on the topics he first explored shortly after leaving the monastery. He recounts the benefits of contemplative living that he learned during his twelve years as a monk but also the more original and imaginative spirituality that he later developed and embraced in his secular life. Here, he shares stories of others who are creating their own path: a former football player now on a spiritual quest with the Pueblo Indians, a friend who makes a meditative practice of floral arrangements, and a well-known classical pianist whose audiences sometimes describe having a mystical experience while listening to her performances. Moore weaves their experiences with the wisdom of philosophers, writers, and artists who have rejected materialism and infused their secular lives with transcendence. At a time when so many feel disillusioned with or detached from organized religion yet long for a way to move beyond an exclusively materialistic, rational lifestyle, A Religion of One's Own points the way to creating an amplified inner life and a world of greater purpose, meaning, and reflection.

I loved this book! I am a survivor of colonization. I visited and shared with many different churches and belief systems in my search for connection to the numinous. At this point in time I have found the best way to connect is not through a middle-man, but directly, through our own experience. This book was very supportive in this sense. I recommend it to anyone who may be looking for a home-made spirituality that fills the spirit and feels authentic. ( )

Thomas Moore inspires readers to create their own unique spiritual practices. He recognizes a need for spirituality but
not necessarily "religion" in the sense of a set of rules and dire consequences of not following those rules. Moore encourages the use of journaling, art, meditation and study. I found this book to be informative but repetitive. Moore is a
trustworthy and reliable teacher having spent years as a monk before leaving the monastery to marry and become a practicing psychotherapist. It is a worth while read for those who are discouraged by organized religion but feel the call to find a spiritual practice that restores and sustains them. ( )

"A sumptuous and soul-stirring description of an openhearted and flexible path for us all… Here at last is a substantive book that respects the riches of religion, spirituality, and secularity and equips the Saints (that would be us) to embrace all the wild possibilities "as we head out into the new territories ahead"" – Spirituality & Practice

In this book, Thomas Moore advocates going beyond what he sees as the inflexible path of formal religion and finding what is deeply meaningful to you. One of his basic premises is that one needs to grow beyond the idea of religion as 'truth etched in granite'. In this, he is the epitome of post-Christian spirituality.

The linguistic root of the word religion means to bind together the body, soul, and mind. This can occur whenever one is deeply engrossed in one's passion, whether one believes in a God or not. He uses the example of an atheist pianist deeply engrossed in his music as an example of non-theist religion.

He does believe that religion can be found in the formal paths of various forms of belief. He believes that established religions offer beauty and wisdom and whatever parts of them that speak deeply to you should be practiced. An interesting point to me was that he feels that the beauty of a formal religion is found only in its practice and can not be grasped by merely reading or talking about it.

From the book:
“So what are our choices? One option is to stay with the shallow religion of the materialist sciences and another to go back to the formal religion that so many have abandoned. We could also make do with some vague and bland option of spirituality. I opt for religion rather than secularism, but I think we need a religion that comes out of our hearts and mind and is tailor-made to our own values and sensitivities. This new approach looks to formal religions for insight, but it takes root and flourishes in an individual life.

When I speak of a religion of ones own, I'm not talking about a selfish, ego-centered loosely patched together spiritual concoction. I'm recommending a courageous, deep-seated fate-driven, informed and intelligent life that has sublime and transcendent dimension”.


There is lots of food for thought in this one. Its opposition to finding absolute truth in any religion will not make many adherents of a specific religion happy, but it's recommended for those who have left traditional paths and are seeking a deeper way of being in the world. ( )

What I appreciate most about A Religion of One's Own is that it shows how one can meld traditional religion, spiritual intuition, and personal discipline into a deep and meaningful practice without it being kooky. Unlike so many new age forms of spiritualism, Moore's approach also requires something deep of the participant - in mind and in action. I'm still figuring out where to take it from here, but that's really the point. ( )
