According to Thomas Moore, people today have lost the deep, direct, and vivid sense of what it means to live with passion and originality. Moore believes that beneath the many thick layers of indoctrination about who we are and who we should be lies an original self, a person who came into this world full of possibility and destined for a particular life.The fifty mediations in this collection offer fresh interpretations of living with that original self rather than conformity. he presents multidimensional portraits of the creative self and different angles from which to tap one's primal emotions and possibilities. This audio demonstrates what it means to live from the burning essence of the heart, with the creativity that comes from allowing the soul to blossom in its own colors and shapes.With his usual grace and insight, Moore counters the prevailing assumptions of the day and offers strikingly unorthodox views on what is virtuous and healthy, opening up possibilities for a renewal of the way we live socially and in our private lives.
