Moore contributes foreword to volume of poetry

At the beginning of the summer this year, University Professors Press released Journey of the Wounded Soul: Poetic Companions for Spiritual Struggles by Louis Hoffman and Steve Fehl.
"From the sacred scriptures of the world religions through contemporary times, poetry has helped individuals express and work through spiritual struggles. Journey of the Wounded Soul continues this ancient tradition in a contemporary voice. This collection of poems brings voice to spiritual struggles, seeking to create a community through poetic voice."
In his Foreword to this collection, Thomas Moore writes:
"I’d like every psychology major in the world to read the brilliant introduction that doesn’t miss a step in keeping us close to our humanity and offering solid, profound and reliable ideas for navigating the complex ways of the most ordinary life …
This is poetry that stands on its own but is especially useful when you are in one of life’s dark nights or tunnels. It doesn’t cheer you up; instead it takes you deep in thought to the mysteries working themselves out in what you feel to be problems and challenges."
Moore is described as bestselling author of Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, The Soul’s Religion, and A Religion of One’s Own. He also wrote Dark Nights of the Soul.
