    Healing

    Care of the Soul is a book revealing the nature of the soul and how the soul seeks ultimate fulfillment in the most ordinary circumstances of our lives. Thomas Moore encourages us to listen to the voice of soul calling us to our unique desire to express our true nature and meet it with unconditional love. Thanks, Thomas Moore, for sharing with us such wonderful words of hope, grace, and mercy.

    A landmark effort

    As a person who has read scores of books about spirituality and metaphysics, this is the most influential and refreshing I¿ve read in 20 years. ¿Care of the Soul¿ is a beautifully written book about simple living and high thinking. The quality thoughts expressed in this book are worthy of being re-read throughout one¿s life. Thomas Moore has made a stark departure from the metaphysical and New Age movement with a book that is, quite simply, a guide for soulful living. Moore doesn¿t talk about karma, reincarnation, salvation, gurus or higher plains of consciousness. He doesn¿t become entangle with his own ego nor does he reiterate the conventional wisdom so many books of this genre parrot. On the contrary, this book challenges convention at every turn. ¿Care of the Soul¿ is about the here and now, the importance of mythology, ritual, imagination and beauty. It¿s about finding ritual and sacredness in our everyday routines. It deals with subjects ranging from family relationships, jealousy and earning a living to depression, aging and dying. Yet, Moore doesn¿t offer trite or handy answers or techniques for solving problems or smoothing the human experience. The human experience, with all its agonies, is not something to be circumvented, in Moore¿s view. And it¿s not something subject to overnight transformation. Rather, the human experience is a process to be embraced and made whole. Buy this book and read it. You will cherish it and pass it along to the people you care about.

    A Real Dud

    'Care of the Soul' by Thomas Moore was highly recommended by someone whose opinion I regard highly. To the contrary, I found it tiresome reading with few redeeming qualities. Frequent references to mythology, though interesting, had little practical value. The main theme appeared to be psyco-babble represented as fact.
