Care of the Soul – Book Review

Every so often we come across a book that changes the way we look at life, or at ourselves. Care of the Soul: A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life by Thomas Moore did both.

The book combines freudian and jungian philosophies of the self with ancient greek mythology and modern life to create an experience of the soul that is unmatched. While reading this guide I gained insights on why I felt certain feelings, how to handle difficult situations, and most importantly how to accept myself.

The book itself is divided into sections about family interactions, narcissism and one’s self-image, depression and anxiety, work-life balance and spirituality (and other topics. It’s a difficult and slow read but absolutely invaluable when it comes to shifting your perspective on life.

Essentially the book teaches you how to live your life in a way that fulfills your deepest desires and touches your soul. If you’re looking for a self-help book that will revolutionize your life with out making you actually DO anything, this is it. I’m sorry we can’t describe it better, but you’ll have to see for yourself.
