Every human journey is filled with emotional tunnels: the loss of a loved one or end of a relationship, aging and illness, career disappointments, or just an ongoing sense of dissatisfaction with life. Society tends to view these dark nights in clinical terms as obstacles to be overcome as quickly as possible. But Thomas Moore's extensive career as a psychologist and theologian has taught him that honoring these periods of fragility as periods of incubation and opportunities to delve the soul's deepest needs can provide healing and a new understanding of life's meaning.

Dark Nights of the Soul presents these metaphoric dark nights not as the enemy, but as times of transition, occasions to restore yourself, and transforming rites of passage. Moore shows specific ways to engage life more deeply through particular challenges and shares a powerful new outlook on such topics as:

  • The healing power of melancholy
  • The sexual dark night and the mysteries of matrimony
  • Finding solace during illness and in aging
  • Anxiety, anger, and temporary insanities
  • Linking creativity, spirituality, and emotional struggles
  • Finding meaning and beauty in the darkness

    With the soothing, accessible tone and practical philosophy that have made Moore an internationally beloved author, Dark Nights of the Soul will help you tend to the deepest needs of the heart and spirit in a modern world full of life's challenges, and is sure to be a comforting companion during your most difficult times.

      " This can be a scary book. If you're feeling down, it's pretty heavy, but it will give you the solace of knowing you are not alone. "

      " I sometimes had trouble with his writing. I can't say it isn't clear, exactly, but it doesn't always feel part of an organized whole, and doesn't always feel like it flows reasonably from one topic to another. That said, I found his insights very helpful, occasionally profound. "

      " Jungian psychology seems to be as complex and deep as life itself. I turn to Thomas Moore when a simple healthy/unhealthy dichotomy won't do. "

      " One of my favorite books by Thomas Moore. I believe he really delved deep into his subject here, instead of dancing around it. I have this on my shelf to re-read when needed. "
