From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas Moore is the author of popular spiritual books including the New York Times best seller, Care of the Soul (1992). He is a Roman Catholic with a twist of Zen, and a psychotherapist who admires the writings of Carl Jung and James Hillman.

Moore was born in Detroit, Michigan to an Irish Catholic family. As a youth he joined the Servites, a Roman Catholic lay order where he studied philosophy and music.

He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Chicago's DePaul University, a Master of Arts degree in musicology from the University of Michigan, a Master of Arts degree in theology from the University of Windsor, Ontario, and in 1975, a Doctor of Philosophy degree in religion from Syracuse University. He taught at Glassboro State College and then Southern Methodist University. Denial of tenure at SMU launched Moore's next career.

From 1974 to 1990 he practiced as a psychotherapist, first in Dallas, Texas and later in New England. After the success of Care of the Soul and its companion volume Soul Mates, he became a full-time professional writer who lectures internationally about spirituality, ecology, psychotherapy and religion. Moore's book, Dark Nights of the Soul, won an award in 2006, A Life at Work, was released in 2008 and his book, Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels, became available in May, 2009. Moore's next book, Care of the Soul in Medicine will be published by Hay House in April, 2010.
