Publisher's Summary

Thomas Moore is the renowned author of Care of the Soul, the classic number one New York Times best seller.

In Ageless Soul, Moore offers to listeners a fresh, optimistic, and rewarding path toward aging, one that need not be feared but rather embraced and cherished. In Moore's view aging is the process by which one becomes a more distinctive, complex, fulfilled, loving, and connected person.

Using examples from his practice as a psychotherapist and teacher who lectures widely on the soul of medicine and spirituality, Moore argues for a new vision of aging: as a dramatic series of initiations rather than a diminishing experience, one that each of us has the tools - experience, maturity, fulfillment - to live out. Subjects include:

  • Why melancholy is a natural part of aging and how to accept it rather than confuse it with depression
  • The vital role of the elder and mentor in the lives of younger people
  • The many paths of spiritual growth and learning that open later in life
  • Sex and sensuality
  • Building new communities and leaving a legacy

Ageless Soul will teach listeners how to embrace the richness of experience and how to take life on, accept invitations to new vitality, and feel fulfilled as they get older.

Good content, okay reading

I’ve enjoyed Moore’s other books. This one seems to have a higher ratio of the author’s self-focus which is distracting at times.
I highly suggest the author use a professional reader instead of reading it himself. It came across as pretentious at times, and he sounds like a less fun version of Winnie the Pooh.
I suppose the content communicates enough reflection of the subject matter to be worth the read. However, this book almost seemed more like a self-serving memoir than a promulgation of wisdom and guidance, especially compared to his other books.

I’m a grandma

This book was, for me, a waste of time. The author just wrote stories of his life. In no way did this offer any guidance, insight, new ideas or even a tidbit of anything helpful in my own life..... it’s always interesting to hear people’s stories, but rather boring.... possibly because my own life has been more exciting. Perhaps young people learn something from the stories from an old, melancholic man.

Timeless message

I've always loved Thomas Moore's writing. He is such an important voice in our busy, unreflected world. He has taught me so much and accompanied me on my life's journey for many years. I hope future generations will learn to listen to the wisdom he shares. We all must learn to listen to and nurture our souls.
