Thomas Moore

Thomas Moore is the author of the number one New York Times bestseller "Care of the Soul." He has written 24 other books about bringing soul to personal life and culture, deepening spirituality, humanizing medicine, finding meaningful work, imagining sexuality with soul and doing religion in a fresh way.

Moore's latest work is "Ageless Soul: The Lifelong Journey Toward Meaning and Joy." In his youth he was a Catholic monk and studied music composition. He has a doctorate in religious studies from Syracuse University and was a university professor for a number of years. He is also a psychotherapist influenced mainly by C. G. Jung and James Hillman. In his work he brings together spirituality, mythology, depth psychology and the arts, emphasizing the importance of images and imagination. He often travels and lectures, hoping to help create a more soulful society. His family members are also deeply involved in spiritual approaches to the arts: his wife, Hari Kirin, is an accomplished painter and teaches a course she has created on yoga and art; his daughter, Ajeet, is a musician and recording artist and spiritual teacher; his stepson, Abraham, is an architect focusing on design related to the social aspects of building.

Thomas also writes fiction, arranges music and plays golf in New Hampshire, where he has lived for 20 years.
