In an era of information technology we tend to neglect education in the emotions, the imagination, and civility. Thomas Moore's books on the soul paint a picture of literate, sensitive, and artful human living. In The Education of the Heart he presents many of the sources that influenced and inspired Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, and The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life, choosing special passages that show us how to cultivate our humanity. But this is not merely a sourcebook or anthology; it's a manual for living from the heart.
Here we read the great teachers and writers of the past and present, not as representatives of historical periods but as vivid teachers who show us the way towards a richer, more spiritful and soul-filled life.
As Thomas Moore says, "Listen to these passages, write them down for future reference, tell them to friends, commit them to memory - these are all ways of educating the heart."
Read by Thomas Moore and cast.

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 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.
