In this special twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Thomas Moore's bestselling Care of the Soul, which includes a new introduction by the author, readers are presented with a revolutionary approach to thinking about daily life--everyday activities, events, problems, and creative opportunities--and a therapeutic lifestyle is proposed that focuses on looking more deeply into emotional problems and learning how to sense sacredness in ordinary things.

Basing his writing on the ancient model of "care of the soul"--which provided a religious context for viewing the everyday events of life--Moore brings "care of the soul" into the twenty-first century. Promising to deepen and broaden the readers' perspectives on their 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.

"Thoughtful, eloquent, inspiring." --San Francisco Chronicle

"I soulfully recommend it without reservation." --John Bradshaw, author of Homecoming

A great book that is assigned to me as part of Practitioner training at my church.

One doesn't have to believe in the typical, religiously oriented denotation of "soul" to gain the fullest insight. Through various examples of symptoms as they relate to classical myth, Moore makes it quite clear that there is truth in the potential value of a more nurturing - and less problem-finding - approach to psychological healing.

If you've ever been in therapy, or are in therapy, you must read this book. It will give you amazing insight. Sometimes, we just need to "be" more and "think" less.

Thomas Moore writes very well in describing the souls part in our lives and how it affects us.
