New book about medicine available April, 2010

Thomas Moore’s new book, Care of the Soul in Medicine: Healing Guidance for Patients and the People Who Care for Them is available in hardcover, 15 April 2010.

According to publisher, Hay House, "Care of the Soul In Medicine is Moore’s manifesto about the future of healthcare. In this new vision of care, Moore speaks to the importance of healing a person rather than simply treating a body. He gives advice to both healthcare providers and patients for maintaining dignity and humanity. He provides spiritual guidance for dealing with feelings of mortality and threat, encouraging patients to not only take an active part in healing but also to view illness as a positive passage to new awareness. While we don’t fully understand the extent to which healing depends on attitude; it has been shown that healing needs to focus on more than the body."
