LEWISTON – Thomas Moore, author of “Care of the Soul,” “Soul Mates, The Education of the Heart,” and “Dark Nights of the Soul,” will speak at the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn campus Thursday, April 28. His topic will be “The Soul of the University.”

Moore was a Catholic monk for 12 years and later earned degrees in theology, musicology, and religion.

A former professor of religion and psychology, he is known for the fresh, imaginative vision he brings to counseling, psychotherapy and education.

He is working on two books: the first brings a spiritual vision to finding our life’s work and imagines jobs, avocations, successes and failures as a process of tending to changes and developments in our souls over a lifetime. The second book stems from Moore’s deep concern about religious wars today. It gives “a picture of Jesus that is congenial with the many religious and spiritual traditions of the world,” he writes.

Moore’s address will begin at 7 p.m. in Room 170 at USM/L-A on 51 Westminster St.
