More of a memoir than a lesson, this abridgment of Moore's latest book is quite a listening experience. It's a gently told story of the author's journey from a stifling religious order to academia and eventually to the freedom of being an artist/thinker and seeker of spiritual truth. Along the way, Moore makes an eloquent case for basing one's spiritual practice on experience and a Zen-like connection with the physical and sensual world, rather than on dogma and overemphasis on interpreted meaning. It works as story and lesson and can be an affirming support for listeners whose search for their soul has been constricted by religious authority. T.W.
