Being perverse is a philosophical art form for Thomas Moore. "I try to speak for values that are rejected," he says. "There are many things that seem to be mistakes that, from the soul point of view, are exactly what you would want." The bestselling author of Care of the Soul (HarperCollins 1992) and Soul Mates (HarperCollins 1994) speaks out on behalf of soul as the part of us that is "closer to the body, to the world we live in" than the often abstract world of spirituality. He insists that personal growth, evolution and other ideals should not be blindly embraced if they keep us from simply experiencing life as it is. This is the true quest of soul, to "enchant" our life with meaning and magic. (hosted by Michael Toms)
