Starting from the premise that we can no longer afford to live in a disenchanted world, Moore shows that a profound, enchanted engagement with life is not a childish thing to be put away with adulthood, but a necessity for one's personal and collective survival.

With his lens focused on specific aspects of daily life such as clothing, food, furniture, architecture, ecology, language, and politics, Moore describes the renaissance these can undergo when there is a genuine engagement with beauty, craft, nature, and art in both private and public life.

Millions of readers who found comfort and substance in Moore's previous bestsellers will discover in this book ways to restore the heart and soul of work, home, and creative endeavors through a radical, fresh return to ancient ways of living the soulful life. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Moore turns from internal spirituality and developing relationships to the natural wonder of everyday life—in trees, food, home, garden, art, furniture, stories, sex, business, politics, and ritual. To live without feeling magic or enchantment in external things, he believes, is to tumble into a long-term ‘loss of soul’ in modern life.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “[A] profound yet practical sequel to Moore’s massive bestseller Care of the Soul...This important book will dare many to believe that life really is full of enchantment.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Moore is most enchanting in his musing on the composition of our lives: we are made of music, of poetry, and of play...Readers familiar with Moore’s previous work will not be disappointed. Those who encounter him here for the first time are sure to find him enchanting.”

    Booklist

  • “This collection of parables and anecdotes about contemporary life traces the effects of soulful living on everyday practices...Moore casts simple and often simplistic reflections in an elegant prose.”

    Library Journal

  • A New York Times Bestseller
