Care of the Soul and Soul Mates, the first two books by Thomas Moore, were both huge national bestsellers, appearing on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list for more than eight months each and selling more than two million copies. In this important sequel, Thomas Moore takes readers to a new level and teaches them how to relate to the world and nature in a more meaningful way.
Introducing the idea that soul is an essential ingredient of life, Care of the Soul together with Soul Mates changed the way millions of readers thought about psychology and spirituality. Now, with The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life, Moore takes another radical step, applying care of the soul to our surroundings and the concrete particulars of how we live. Starting from the premise that we can no longer afford to live in a disenchanted world, Moore shows that a profound, enchanted engagement with life is not a childish thing to be put away with adulthood, but a necessity for our personal and collective survival.
With his lens focused on such specific aspects of daily life as clothing, food, furniture, architecture, ecology, language and politics, Moore describes the renaissance these can undergo when there is a genuine engagement with beauty, craft, nature and art in both private and public life. When all is said and done, what makes life worth living? Not electronics, entertainments or rapid information retrieval, but a spiritual and soulful vision that arises from enchanted nature, a fantasy-filled childhood, intimate neighborhoods and homes and a public life dedicated to the needs of the heart.
The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life opens up the care of the soul and the search for intimate life to the ordinary world in which we live every day. Millions of readers who found comfort and substance in Moore's previous bestsellers will discover in this new book ways to restore the heart and soul of work, home and creative endeavors through a radical, fresh return to ancient ways of living the soulful life.About the Author:
