Description

Starting from the premise that we can no longer afford to live in a disenchanted world, Moore shows that a profound, enchanted engagement with life is not a childish thing to be put away with adulthood, but a necessity for one's personal and collective survival.

With his lens focused on specific aspects of daily life such as clothing, food, furniture, architecture, ecology, language, and politics, Moore describes the renaissance these can undergo when there is a genuine engagement with beauty, craft, nature, and art in both private and public life.

Millions of readers who found comfort and substance in Moore's previous bestsellers will discover in this book ways to restore the heart and soul of work, home, and creative endeavors through a radical, fresh return to ancient ways of living the soulful life.

  • (4/5)
    Promises a lot, but does not grab me at once. Amazon reviewers sounded a similar view
  • (2/5)
    Disappointing in that there is little added to the self-care advice offered in Care of the Soul. Moore continues to recommend appreciation of aesthetic, personally interpreted, as a necessary way of living with dignity and happiness. He continues to offer the Renaissance neo-Platonism and mysticism of Ficino, and the mystical mythology of Jung as intellectual/aesthetic inspiration. Very Iron John.

    I like a lot of what he says although some of it is way too "new-agey" for me. The main thrust is to keep balance, beauty and meaning in your life and it's good to read something that reminds you of that from time to time.
