Care of the Soul: Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Lifeby Thomas Moore
Synopses & Reviews
Catholic religious of an earlier era once talked of the need for "custody of the thoughts" as an essential act of the faithful life. Author Thomas Moore refreshes that sentiment in his bestselling Care of the Soul, reminding his many appreciative readers of the sustenance to be gained from a contemplative approach to life. By this he means not some saintly withdrawal into other worlds but the heightened grasp of the sacredness at the heart of this world that can hallow the ordinary. All life is holy, he believes and believing, shows us how.
Moore's bestselling book presents a new way of thinking about daily life--the everyday activities, events, problems, and creative opportunities--proposing a therapeutic lifestyle that focuses on looking more deeply into emotional problems and sensing sacredness in ordinary things.
New York Times bestseller for over ten months, this is a life-style guide that shows how to add spirituality, depth, and meaning to modern-day life by nurturing the soul. It shows you how to look more deeply into emotional problems and sense the sacredness in ordinary things, easing frustration and emptiness and broadening your perspective on the meaning of your life.
Thomas Moore's books have sold over two million copies. Care of the Soul and Soul Mates are both New York Times bestsellers.
