Recommended for: The non-religious religious - and deconstructionists
Read in August, 2007

I have listened to the first three chapters of this book, and just like Care of the Soul - Thomas Moore successfully weaves philosophy, literature, mythology, psychology, and theology into one very simple and effective package. He again reminds us to think of depression and melancholy as gifts to be enjoyed - and to be learned from...not to be CURED by a therapist or ERASED by medication.

Jessica The first three chapters spun my paradigm of brokeness into a healthier place-embracing the dark is only part of the story, there is also light in the sacred of the everday, which doesn't abolish the dark or even keep it at bay, but rather, makes it productive.
