In Care of the Soul, Thomas Moore explored the importance of nurturing the soul and struck a chord nationwide—the book became a long-term bestseller, topping charts across the country.
Building on that book’s wisdom, Soul Mates explores how relationships of all kinds enhance our lives and fulfill the needs of our souls. Moore emphasizes the difficulties that inevitably accompany many relationships and focuses on the need to work through these differences in order to experience the deep reward that comes with intimacy and unconfined love.
“I devoured Soul Mates like some comfort food for the spirit. . . . Moore moves love off the fast track and into the realm of mystery and imagination where it belongs.”—New Woman
“An eloquent, passionate, often mystical exploration of how we mere mortals might better understand ourselves and others in a society in which so much emphasis is placed on interpersonal dynamics and so little on introspection, care, grace, gratitude, and honor.”—Detroit NewsAbout the Author:

As Thomas Moore pointed out in "Care of the Soul", the soul thrives under certain conditions, especially intimacy, attachment, & involvement. Unlike many books that are concerned w/ making relationships work better, "Soul Mates" finds meaning in endings, separations, jealousy, sexual conflicts, & other obstacles we may encounter in the pursuit of intimacy. The book emphasizes that if we are willing to live through these difficulties, life is enriched & the soul thrives. Moore describes how "soul-intimacy" can be cultivated in simple ways that are often overlooked: writing thoughtful letters & engaging in heartfelt conversation, for instance. On another level, he investigates ways to create soulful community & a profound sense of conviviality in society & among nations. For insight he appeals to a wide range of literature & mythology, from Emily Dickinson , Sufi poetry, Native American folktales & classical mythology. In all of these sources Moore finds intimacy depicted as a matter of soul rather than interpersonal dynamics. Everyone whose heart, mind & soul were touched by "Care of the Soul" will find in "Soul Mates" the same kind of empathy, caring & wisdom as Thomas Moore expands on his ideas about life & explores all human relationships.
