beautiful wisdom

A perspective rich and full of contemplation, this book points to the sacredness of simplicity while teching us gently how to love each other and ourselves more fully. It came at a good time in my life, and I'd wish that for anyone who finds it. Moore presents a literate and psychologically developed thesis. I do wish though, above all, that there was an unabridged version. The abridged oversimplifies some parts which are so much betterin their original completeness. I picked up the text recently and am finding so much more in the depths of the print version. The audio on this was easy to listen to, engaging nad never got annoying or patronizing.

Anything by Thomas Moore

I can not think of any writer that speaks to me more than Thomas Moore. Thomas Moore is a must for the spiritual journey.

I could not get past the Peter Thomas voiceover

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I will need to listen to this again. It is likely that I have watched too much TV and heard Peter Thomas too often on NOVA and Forensic Files. His voice just kept taking me back to those programs and not into the

Would you be willing to try another book from Thomas Moore? Why or why not?

Yes

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The Narrator is truly gifted but perhaps his voice is too well known from other work.

Abridged leaves so much out.....

I am taking a class and this is one of our main text books. I was traveling so thought the audio would be great to listen to on the trip. I had trouble finding the chapter I was supposed to be reading; arriving home and comparing with the text I found large portions missing from the audio. Besides this complaint, the book is fabulous! The author's approach opens our minds and therefore hearts to a loving approach towards the reality of life's challenges here on earth. This book is a must for counselors! Also for anyone wanting an understanding of inner conflicts.

It is a view of beauty in ordinary life.

It touches our conscious soul and helps us foster the flourishing of our own lives.

What did you learn from Care of the Soul that you would use in your daily life?

I will try to live my daily life with a transparent soul.

Any additional comments?

I wish it was not abridged however I did get SO much out of it.

Soulfulness Cut Short

Soul work is hard work because it often goes neglected. We are spiritual beings as much as we are physical beings and Moore challenges us to care for the whole of our being by not neglecting the soul, the very seat of who we are internally. I enjoyed the narrator but was disappointed that the audio version of Moore's book is not the complete book. There are some important parts and chapters of his book that are simply omitted. I would have never purchased the audiobook if this was made clear in the ad, but if you have never read his book, you will be deeply satisfied by the audio version. It's more than enough to focus you on caring for your own soul. Listen and enjoy.

Disappointed. Repetitive and wandering.

An interesting point would be brought up and then too much time would be spent defining the term. I couldn't bring myself to finish it. It was a recommendation from a friend so I was hoping it would be worthwhile but I am sorry I wasted 2 hours on it. I tried.
