Review:

Care of the Soul is considered to be one of the best primers for soul work ever written. Thomas Moore, an internationally renowned theologian and former Catholic monk, offers a philosophy for living that involves accepting our humanity rather than struggling to transcend it. By nurturing the soul in everyday life, Moore shows how to cultivate dignity, peace, and depth of character. For example, in addressing the importance of daily rituals he writes, "Ritual maintains the world's holiness. As in a dream a small object may assume significance, so in a life that is animated by ritual there are no insignificant things." This is the eloquence that helped reintroduce the sacred into everyday language and contemporary values.

From the Publisher:

Appearing on bestseller lists across the country, this book provides a powerful spiritual uplift for our troubled times.

Care of the Soul offers a completely new way of thinking about daily life-the everyday activities, events, problems and creative opportunities. It proposes a therapeutic lifestyle that focuses on looking more deeply into emotional problems and sensing sacredness in ordinary things.

Thomas Moore bases his writing on the ancient model of "care of the soul," which provided a religious context for viewing the everyday events of life. Bringing "care of the soul" into the 20th century, he promises to deepen and broaden the reader's perspective on his or her own life experiences. Moore draws on his own life as a therapist practicing "care of the soul," as well as his studies of the world's religions and his work in music and art, to create this inspirational guide that examines the connections between spirituality and the problems of individuals and society.
