Thomas Moore, PhD, is the author of Care of the Soul and 20 other books on spirituality and soulful living. For more than a decade, he lived in a monastic-style Catholic religious order. Because of his deep appreciation for the world’s spiritual traditions, especially Buddhism, he often refers to himself as a “Zen Catholic.”
A psychotherapist for 30 years, Moore has spent his life combining depth psychology and spirituality. He holds a doctorate degree in religious studies, as well as degrees in theology and music, and he lectures widely on spirituality, archetypal psychology, and medicine.
Moore worked closely with James Hillman for almost 40 years, developing Archetypal Psychology. He writes regularly for Psychology Today, Spirituality & Health, and the Hufﬁngton Post, and lectures widely on holistic medicine, spirituality, psychotherapy, and the arts.
Thomas Moore has been awarded numerous honors, including the Humanitarian Award from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and an honorary doctorate from Lesley University.
“My life work," says Thomas Moore, "is an attempt to ground the pure, visionary spirit in the imperfect, intoxicating sensuousness of worldly life.”
