" The book for our troubled times-a path-breaking lifestyle handbook that shows how to add spirituality, depth, and meaning to modern day life by nurturing the soul.
Care of the Soul offers a new way of thinking about daily life-its problems and its creative opportunities.
It proposes a therapeutic way of life that is not a self-improvement project.
Instead, its focus is on looking more deeply into emotional problems and sensing sacredness in ordinary things. The ancient model of "care of the soul" was rooted in religion and provided a sacred context for viewing the ordinary moments of everyday life. This new book brings "care of the soul" into the twentieth century and promises to deepen and broaden the reader's perspective on his or her own life experiences.
The author draws on his own life as a therapist practicing "care of the soul," his studies of the world's religions, his teaching of Jungian psychology and art therapy, and his work in music and art to create this inspirational guide that examines the connections between spirituality and the problems of individuals and society.
