The Book: Ageless Soul

In Ageless Soul, Moore reveals a fresh, uplifting, and inspiring path toward maturing, one that need not be resisted, but rather embraced and cherished. In Moore’s view, growing up is the process by which one becomes a more distinctive, complex, fulfilled, loving, and connected person.

Using examples from his practice as a psychotherapist and teacher who lectures widely on the soul of medicine and spirituality, Moore argues for a new vision of growing up: as a dramatic series of initiations, one that each of us has the tools―experience, maturity, fulfillment―to live out. Subjects include:

*Why melancholy is a natural part of aging, and how to accept it, rather than confuse it with depression
*The vital role of the elder and mentor in the lives of younger people
*The many paths of spiritual growth and learning that open later in life
*Sex and sensuality
*Building new communities and leaving a legacy


Praise for the Book

“After reading this beautifully and eloquently written book, getting older seems much more
like a blessing than a curse! Thomas Moore convinces us that we age best when we embrace our
age, live agelessly, and remember every day to find the endless joy nestled inside our soul."
—Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, Harvard Medical School, and NYT bestselling author

“Destined to become a classic, Ageless Soul brilliantly illuminates one of life's most enduring
mysteries: ‘Why―and how―do we grow old?’ A pioneer pointing the way forward to a new
world of aging… A precious book, Ageless Soul offers a richly textured vision of how,
in Moore's own words, to 'age well.'”
      — Pythia Peay, author of American Icarus                                                         

"With warmth, intimacy, and rare depth of wisdom [Moore] guides his readers through each of
[growing up’s] stages. Grounded in years of psychological research and spiritual reflection on
the human enterprise,this wonderful book lays out for us what it is to live a full and creative
life all the way to its end. This book should be read by everyone…
— Sister Joan Chittister, author of The Gift of Years                                 

"With Ageless Soul, Thomas Moore extends a magnificent invitation to reflect, grow up with joy
and intention, and give back with an open heart."
          — Marc Freedman, , founder and CEO of Encore.org and author of The Big Shift

Praise for Thomas Moore

“I soulfully recommend it without reservation.”
John Bradshaw, author of Homecoming

“The sincerity, intelligence and style -- so beautifully clean -- of Tom Moore’s Care of the Soul truly moved me. The book’s got strength and class and soul, and I suspect may last longer than psychology itself.”
James Hillman, author of Re-Visioning Psychology

“This book just may help you give up the futile quest for salvation and get down to the possible task of taking care of your soul. A modest, and therefore marvelous, book about the life of the spirit.”
Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly
