Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

Self-help books of the last decade have treated the mind, body and spirit as three dimensions of life. Contemporary theologian and family therapist Moore perceives the soul as a fourth dimension. In Soul Mates (the sequel to Care of the Soul) Moore examines the soul and relationships, particularly ended love affairs. Moore reads with a soft, yet strong, reassuring voice. His "no-frills" delivery suits the subject matter. The result is gut-wrenching for his followers but may promote sleep in others. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Only rarely can I claim to have been touched by a tale, a text, a book, even words so hauntingly beautiful and enduring as those of Thomas Moore as expressed in Soul Mates. Moore's writing ensnares you almost as unpredictably as love itself with a literary insight and philosophical exhiliration that is the ultimate journey with an author. You owe it to your spirit, your heart and your intrinsic self to become a cherished and enlightened part of this psychological nourishment. Moore turns everything you wondered, dreamt and felt about the real experience of human relationships into something as clear and precious as air itself. Gently, yet perceptively, he guides you back to the core and the unique and individual thoughts of your very existence. Moore's Soul Mates may even be the closest you can get to the simple truth of taking a single moment in this life for confronting and embracing yourself and everyone around you. Certainly, this is a book that is the perfect expression of the deep, spiritual force working in and out of our lives, making anything at all-even self-love still possible-again and again. Without pretense, heroics or high-minded words on paper, Soul Mates offers us the non-intrusive space to no longer hide our hearts, our souls and emotional performances beneath the glaring lights of a fast-paced, technologically driven world. Soul Mates may be considered by some to be one of the great texts of our time, but most importantly, it remains true to the sense of what it is to be human and humankind in all its guises and manifestations. Touch this book with both hands and let go only when you want to!.

IÕm glad that I had grabbed Soul Mates off the shelf along with about four other self-help books that I purchased at the same time.
S/M has helped me understand (or given a new perspective on) all relationships -- from spousal to neighbors to co-workers to friendships and family. Thomas Moore says that we should appreciate the complexities and mysteries that come with all relationships.
S/M doesnÕt offer any concrete step-by-step advice for solving relationship problems. Instead, Mr. Moore explains that every relationship is different and that everyday problems on the surface may have a deeper hidden meaning. And with this in mind, by not immediately relieving ourselves from what it is that is bothering us at the moment we may be able to understand what it is that is really troubling us if we give ourselves the time.
S/M is a great book if you are looking to better yourself, improve existing relationships, and gain insight on all relationships and life in general. I reccomend it and I believe it can help everyone understand themselves and others. --Douglas

Finally a book on love and relationship that doesn't pretend to have all the answers. Instead of beating the reader over the head with step-by-step programs or offering pat answers to the mysteries of relationship (like so many have done before him), Moore gently weaves a web of possibilities, hope, self-empowerment, and acceptance of the paradoxical. Deep at times; read it and savor it over and over again.

The first time you read this work, chances are you'll miss most of what's fantastic about it. This is because Moore speaks so clearly about ideas which we think we know or understand, but in truth, we do not. Thomas Moore is a brilliant man, one of the few authors who I feel a kinship of minds with, someone who voices truths we innately know, but our culture fails to celebrate. If you read his words slowly and attentively, you'll find it reads like poetry - fluid, open, Moore writing in such a way that mirrors his themes. Moore's ideas about love, family, community - they are true gems. I can't say enough about how highly I regard his wisdom, as well as his craft. I dare you to attempt to truly hear him.

Format: Paperback
Moore's writings once again prove to be one of the most effective contemporary antidotes to the blinding literalism, mind-numbing religious ideology, cheap moralisms, New Age silliness and Icarian spirituality that pervade so much of American society. His musings hold the tension between the traditionalist and iconoclast, an alchemy that only a true majus can achieve. Like all his works, Soul Mates is a welcome respite from the overly efficient, productive, mechanical and therapeutic language that finally stifles rich imagination and extinguishes the life of the soul. In much of the book, his own self-confessed Artemisian nature lies deftly hidden amongst the undercurrents of his reflections.
Moore's essential theme is that change takes place not through consious effort but by subtle shifts in the imagination. You will certainly feel your imagination stretched through the many Greek myths, stories, poetry, Renaissance philosophy and his own "outrageous failures and follies."
For people who finds themselves as "pursued" or as the "pursuer", Moore's insights into the Daphne myth will provide for much rumination and fantasy. And if it's the "magic" that has been lost, the Native American Cochiti story is pure soul food. Learn of the erotic idea of love as a "menage a trois", and of Moore's surprising and hilarious 'threesome' at an art exhibition.
Moore's genius is being able to take the raw material of life and sift, separate, turn, and mash it until it becomes pure alchemical gold. It might just strike a vein in your own soul!
