Thomas Moore talks about the soul of Christmas

Listen to Julie Ann Turner's 2017 ConsciousSHIFT interview with Thomas Moore about his book The Soul of Christmas, a seasonal favourite.

"Moore believes this sacred holiday has plenty to offer to Christians and non-Christians alike  that is an event and a transformation that belongs to everyone. The Soul of Christmas is all about Christmas  taking a look at one of the important symbols of the Christmas season (the birth of Jesus in a manger, the guiding star, the Magi, the Angels, and the Christmas tree), and exploring their history and their meaning, across belief systems  to discover how everyone, no matter what their religion or belief, can enjoy this magical time of year. Moore shows that focusing on the meaning behind the symbolism and the sentiment behind the commercialism can lead us to a way of living that can hold value to people of any faith: a grand experiment in living from generosity rather than competitiveness, a single day when children know better than anyone that magic exists."
Turner recorded this 55-minute segment a year ago today, on the eve of the northern hemisphere's Winter Solstice. The program provides nourishment and images for this special time of year.
