The need to love and connect with others creates intimacy, but it also creates many difficulties, even failure. But Thomas Moore emphasizes that if you are willing to live through these difficulties, your life is enriched and the soul thrives. Soul-intimacy can be cultivated in many ways, even in letter-writing and conversations. It can be deepened through sexuality and jealousy, relationships that have gone stale, and even the pain of endings. Moore also investigates the possibility of soulful community in society and among nations, citing among others Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, and Sufi poets. Everyone who was touched by Care of the Soul will find this work a continuation of Moore's inspirational insights on human relationships. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 2/17/2014

    " Moore writes better than most pop psychologists. In this book he focuses on relationships and learning to "see" another's soul. I enjoyed this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/8/2014

    " This book was much more than I expected in terms of content and nuance. Not one word of this book is superfluous, and I particularly found his use and readings of myths to be very valuable. I think any one person can gain powerful and encouraging insights into their own lifepath and relationships by reading this book. I will definitely check out more of Thomas Moore's works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Nemec eggert | 1/12/2014

    " Thomas Moore is a fantastic writer, and one of my favorites. He is an extremely deep thinker and is able to eloquently put one's feelings into words. Also recommend "The Dark NIghts of the Soul." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosie Banks | 1/7/2014

    " This book really turned my whole view of soulmates around. It gave me an understanding of soul as separate from spirit. Very thought-provoking! It challenged me to consider how I've preferred spirit over soul. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miroku Nemeth | 1/5/2014

    " I think that the best advice one can gain from this book is to explore both the darkness and the light in love and life and see them as necessary cycles that will and must unfold. Live life as poetry unfolding. A very worthwhile read. "
