The need to love and connect with others creates intimacy, but it also creates many difficulties, even failure. But Thomas Moore emphasizes that if you are willing to live through these difficulties, your life is enriched and the soul thrives. "Soul-intimacy" can be cultivated in many ways, even in letter-writing and conversations. It can be deepened through sexuality and jealousy, relationships that have gone stale, and even the pain of endings. Moore also investigates the possibility of soulful community in society and among nations, citing among others Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, and Sufi poets. Everyone who was touched by Care of the Soul will find this work a continuation of Moore's inspirational insights on human relationships.More
