Shows readers how "soul intimacy" can be cultivated through letter writing, conversations, sexuality, jealousy, boredom, and endings, and how the soul is enriched through the tribulations of life

Blackwell North Amer
A companion volume to the national bestseller Care of the Soul, this new book from Thomas Moore explores how relationships of all kinds - with all their difficulties - deepen our lives and help fulfill the needs of the soul.
As Thomas Moore pointed out in Care of the Soul, the soul thrives under certain conditions, especially intimacy, attachment, and involvement. Unlike many books that are concerned with making relationships work better, Moore's new book, Soul Mates, finds meaning in endings, separations, jealousy, sexual conflicts, and other obstacles we may encounter in the pursuit of intimacy. The book emphasizes that if we are willing to live through these difficulties, life is enriched and the soul thrives. Moore describes how "soul-intimacy" can be cultivated in simple ways that are often overlooked - writing thoughtful letters and engaging in heartfelt conversation, for instance. On another level, he investigates ways to create soulful community and a profound sense of conviviality in society and among nations. For insight he appeals to a wide range of literature and mythology - Emily Dickinson, Sufi poetry, Native American folktales, and classical mythology. In all of these sources Moore finds intimacy depicted as a matter of soul rather that interpersonal dynamics.
Everyone whose heart, mind, and soul were touched by Care of the Soul will find in Soul Mates the same kind of empathy, caring, and wisdom as Thomas Moore expands on his ideas about life and explores all human relationships.
