Thomas Moore's new work book has new title

The title has changed. Current photographs of the cover remain the same but indications are a new cover will be created before the book is launched in February, 2008. Moore’s anticipated Worth of our Work: Feeling Stuck, Finding Purpose, and the Alchemy of Profound Change seems to have transmogrified through its own alchemical process into A Life’s Work: The Joy of Discovering What You were Born to Do, to be published by Random House’s Broadway Books. This is suggested by Amazon’s description of the book.

Category: Psychology & Psychiatry; Business & Economics - Careers
Publisher: Broadway
Format: Hardcover, 288 pages
Publication Date: February 2008
ISBN: 978-0-7679-2252-4 (0-7679-2252-2)

Next week Moore presents his week-long course at Cape Cod for mental health professionals through the New England Educational Institute. Participants will have a great week.

Dark Nights of the Soul excerpt in eight parts

"To deal with these disturbances we also need rich, solid, and useful ideas, rare items in a world of facts and opinions. I get my confidence as a therapist from my studies in religion, mythology, the arts, and depth psychology. The best therapists I know are those who have educated themselves in the great mysteries of love, aggression, and death. They are not the ones with standard techniques and easy answers. You, too, could think through the basic questions, read the best writers, see good films, and educate yourself in the life of the soul. Then, when a dark night comes, you will be ready for it."
– Thomas Moore, Dark Nights of the Soul
The e NotAloneSite (You are not alone) offers an eight-part excerpt from Thomas Moore’s Darks Night of the Soul, including sections about shades of darkness and spirituality of the deep.
