A 'dark night of the soul' is not a psychological syndrome, but a quest for meaning during life's darkest hours: the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, aging and illness, career disappointments or just an ongoing dissatisfaction with life. Thomas Moore's extensive experience as a psychologist and theologian has taught him that the dark night is a challenge to restore ourselves and to become someone of substance, depth and soul. By using these trying times as an opportunity to reflect and delve into the soul's deepest needs, we can find a new understanding of life's meaning. Dark Nights of the Soul has its roots in a favourite chapter in Thomas Moore's million copy bestseller, Care of the Soul. In this beautifully-written and thought-provoking work he explores our contemporary anxieties and insecurities and shows how these metaphoric dark nights can become transforming rites of passage. 'I soulfully recommend it without reservation.' John Bradshaw, author of Homecoming

This book was such a monumental read for me that I typed up notes afterwards, as kind of a "study guide" for applying his principles to my life. This book is must-read for anyone going through a tough time! I'm just sorry to say I don't own my copy any longer; I've already passed it on to someone else who needs it. It's that kind of book. GREAT tool for survival.

I love this book...what a thoughtful way of approaching the difficult times in life-grief, depression, loss, etc emphasizing the spiritual while not ignoring the psychological.

Dark Nights of the Soul by Thomas Moore is an excellent book. It is not preachy but helps one understand internal trauma of all sorts and avenues to healing. It can be picked up and almost opened anywhere and one will find something relevant to their personal circumstances, conclusion being we are all more alike than we know and face so many of the same situations in life. It really helps, even in the middle of the night when one can't clear their mind....
