Read excerpt from Care of the Soul in Medicine

Hay House promotes Thomas Moore's Care of the Soul in Medicine in the July 2011 issue of Present Moments, the publisher's monthly inspirational newsletter. Moore is introduced with an excerpt from his book that describes the entrance to a place of healing:
"Here, then, is another rule about the soul: It is affected by symbol, ritual, and image. None of this has to be understood or registered intellectually; it is enough to experience the transition of a good entry or the spirit of healing in a well-designed examining and treatment area. Of course, it takes an architect and artist educated in traditional ritual space to design an effective entry.

A soulful healing environment will reflect sensitivity to the symbolic import of everything in sight: materials, sounds, smells, images, language, and uniforms."
Care of the Soul in Medicine is available in paperback.

Moore has expert role in film about imagination

Thomas Moore is featured in the new documentary/drama, People v. The State of Illusion, set in the "Old Main Prison" of New Mexico State Penitentiary. According to Bah Video: The plot follows Aaron Roberts, "a single father who is arrested and tried on manslaughter and assault charges following an incident that claims the life of a woman. Following his conviction and imprisonment, Aaron's daughter is sent to a State home for children because there are no other family members to care for her. While in the State home, an attorney learns of her plight and the story of her father, and decides to represent her in an innovative and surprising case against the State."

This description includes, ""Directed by award winning Director Scott Cervine, and written and produced by Austin Vickers, this movie explores the science and power of perception and imagination and the prison walls of habitual thought and behavior that we all create, and documents the evidence that answers the central questions of this provocative film, "what is real" and "can people really change?" Featured in the film are 9 of the nation's leading thinkers in the fields of neuroscience, biochemistry, psychology, quantum physics, sociology, and consciousness theory," including Dr. Peter Senge, Dr. Thomas Moore, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Robert Jahn, Debbie Ford, and Dr. Michael Vandermark.

Moore presents Jesus and Buddha as healers

Hay House promotes its I Can Do It! 2011 London U.K. event, to be held the weekend of September 23 to September 25, 2011 at:
The Grand Hall,
The Grand Connnaught Rooms,
61–65 Great Queen Street,
London WC2B 5DA

Thomas Moore speaks on Saturday 24 September 2011 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
THE BLUE BUDDHA: Healing Body, Soul and Spirit
"To be a healthy person you have to care daily for the health of your soul and spirit, as well as your body. Certain spiritual and psychological illnesses affect the body and make the whole person sick. This presentation teaches you how we become ill in soul and spirit and how to care for these elements daily to keep them healthy. It also explores themes from Thomas’s latest book Care of the Soul in Medicine, about healing soul and spirit in a typical medical context.

Thomas looks at the image of Jesus as Lithargoel, the Pearl that heals, and at the Lapis Lazuli Radiant Healing Buddha, who blends health and sickness in one subtle, complex view of life. In this new direction in his work, Thomas presents a truly alternative view of illness and health.

Thomas Moore is the author of the classic bestseller Care of the Soul and twenty other books, several of them bestsellers. He has been a monk, a musician, a university professor, and, for over thirty years, a psychotherapist practicing archetypal therapy with a spiritual dimension. His books appear in over twenty languages and he lectures in several countries. For fifteen years he has taught psychiatrists and has worked closely with medical schools, hospices, and hospitals. He has won awards for his teaching and his books, including an honorary doctorate from Lesley University and a humanitarian award from Einstein Medical School. Three of his books have won the Books for a Better Life award. He considers himself a new brand of theologian and is known around the world for his work in ecology and spirituality and for his efforts to make a more soulful society."
