9780060928605: The Education of the Heart: Readings and Sources for Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, and The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life

Don't you ever,
You up in the sky,
Don't you ever get tired
Of having the clouds between you and us?
-- Nootka Prayer

There are Sweets of Pathos, when Sweets of Mirth have passed away --
-- Emily Dickinson

With their themes of restoring the soul, cultivating humanity and living a more harmonious and spiritual existence, Thomas Moore's classic books have touched and comforted millions of people across the country, created a burgeoning interest in soul work and made Thomas Moore a household name. To date, these books have sold two and a half million copies, and continue to hit bestseller lists every week.

The Education of the Heart   gives readers access to the wellspring of wisdom that Moore drew on when creating these seminal works. Ideal for reading groups, the book includes a study guide that offers suggestions for discussion. Selected not only for their brilliance in describing the soul, but for the beauty and power of their language, the essays, poems, songs and passages included here make the book a truly rewarding reading experience. Arranged into chapters devoted to topics such as marriage and intimacy, common life, dwelling and home and life passages, these selections are taken from a rich variety of sources: from Greek tragedies and ancient magical texts; from the Renaissance philosophers such as Marsilio Ficino and Pico della Mirandola; and from modern archetypal psychologists such as C. G. Jung and James Hillman.

As Thomas Moore says in his introduction, "Meditate on the book, read the passages aloud, write them down for future reference, tell them to friends, commit them to memory; These are all ways of educating the heart."

About the Author:

Thomas Moore is the author of the bestselling Care of the Soul and twenty other books on spirituality and depth psychology that have been translated into thirty languages. He has been practicing depth psychotherapy for thirty-five years. He lectures and gives workshops in several countries on depth spirituality, soulful medicine, and psychotherapy. He has been a monk and a university professor, and is a consultant for organizations and spiritual leaders. He has often been on television and radio, most recently on Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday.

From Booklist:

Since Thomas Moore's name on a book attracts hundreds of thousands, this collection of passages that have inspired Moore in writing his best-sellers Care of the Soul (1992), Soul Mates (1993), and The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life may attract a readership much broader than such a work usually does these days. (Early in this century, such inspirational gatherings helped make Elbert Hubbard internationally famous.) Moore says he has designed the book to be equally rewarding whether randomly browsed, read cover to cover, or used as a text for individual or class study of the soul. He separately introduces each of the 8 sections and 24 chapters in which he arrays the selections. Most of the authors are theologians, philosophers, psychologists, and poets, and they are a top-drawer lot: Jesus, Plato, Homer, Emerson, Ficino, Origen, Boethius, Gandhi, Eliot, Jung, Yeats--good company, indeed. Ray Olson
