Welcome to Spirituality & Practice's E-Courses

Gift certificates now available.

These popular spiritual growth and self-improvement programs are designed to fit your schedule and your budget.

Most of us love to go on a spiritual retreat:
• to reflect upon the meaning and purpose of our lives,
• to nurture our connection to Spirit,
• to learn from the great teachers,
• to expand our repertoire of spiritual practices
• to find a spiritual community.

We bring the retreats to you! Our E-Courses, Online Retreats, and 21-day Programs turn your email inbox into a spiritual retreat center.

You can participate in our many exceptional programs in two ways. One is by taking them when they are a "current" program during a specific time frame. Another way is by taking them on-demand where you choose your own start date and how frequently you want to receive the course content.

The Holy FoolThe Holy Fool: Finding Spiritual Liberation in Foolishness and Humor with Thomas Moore is a four-week online retreat in which Thomas Moore (Care of the Soul) invites you to lighten up your spiritual life by embracing the Holy Fool and the spiritual and psychological benefits of making mistakes, living with imperfection, and using your illusions and silly ideas to get more in touch with your possibilities. Through emails three times a week and a one-hour teleconference, Moore will help you look closely at the arc of your life and notice where foolishness has had a role, for good or bad or both. You'll learn how to develop a comic view of life and practice laughing at yourself in a way that helps. In the online Practice Circle, we'll exchange funny/serious stories that we’ve heard or stories about our own predicaments and mistakes. This e-course is designed to evoke the Holy Fool, not just talk about him. September 8 - October 3. Details here.
