Writing, according to Thomas Moore, is sacred practice. Though we often don't think of it in these terms, everything we write - whether a love letter or a shopping list - connects us to the classic tradition of logos
, or word. Once a revered practice, guarded by monks in the sanctity of the scriptorium, writing continues to offer us all direct passage to the soul's innermost corridors. In this recording Moore - the best selling author of Care of the Soul
- provides us with a new look at the writer's art as he discusses the historical, philosophical, and spiritual roots of writing, provides insights on journal writing, letter writing, and the writer's life, and explores reading and writing as contemplative disciplines.
