With their themes of restoring the soul, cultivating humanity and living a more harmonious and spiritual existence, Thomas Moore's classic books have touched and comforted millions of people across the country, created a burgeoning interest in soul work and made Thomas Moore a household name. To date, these books have sold two and a half million copies, and continue to hit bestseller lists every week.
The Education of the Heart gives readers access to the wellspring of wisdom that Moore drew on when creating these seminal works. Ideal for reading groups, the book includes a study guide that offers suggestions for discussion. Selected not only for their brilliance in describing the soul, but for the beauty and power of their language, the essays, poems, songs and passages included here make the book a truly rewarding reading experience. Arranged into chapters devoted to topics such as marriage and intimacy, common life, dwelling and home and life passages, these selections are taken from a rich variety of sources: from Greek tragedies and ancient magical texts; from the Renaissance philosophers such as Marsilio Ficino and Pico della Mirandola; and from modern archetypal psychologists such as C. G. Jung and James Hillman.
As Thomas Moore says in his introduction, "Meditate on the book, read the passages aloud, write them down for future reference, tell them to friends, commit them to memory; These are all ways of educating the heart."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Education of the Heart: Readings and Sources for Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, and The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life?
A PHILOCALIA of the soul Oct 6, 2005
This is simply a "source book", an anthology of brief readings by writers from Marsilio Ficino and Pico della Mirandola to Emily Dickinson and Rainer Maria Rilke, on that noumenal inner reality that Thomas Moore, of CARE OF THE SOUL fame, calls the soul.
A lovely collection indeed, which perhaps ought to have been more portably formatted. I am very glad to have it in any size.
