Customer Reviews for Gifts of a Dark Night

By Patricia
Date Added: Friday 28 March 2014
I find Thomas Moore's personality cloying and insipid at times, which causes me to be impatient with his presentation and resistant to listening to him. However, persevering brought reward. Ironically, this is the theme of Moore's work on "dark nights". The content of his presentation is filled with wisdom, compassion, and practical suggestions on how to turn toward the difficulty in our lives, with care and acceptance of the pain it brings. His humble teaching style inspires courage and curiosity. It is not just a teaching on how to do the deep exploration of what seems unbearable, it also offers companionship on the journey. We realize we are not alone. Grasping the essence of what he is teaching brings a confidence in the ability to get through hard times while finding meaningful purpose in doing so. This is the gift. Moore's work on the "dark night" is excellent. I recommend the audio format, GIFTS OF A DARK NIGHT, and his book, DARK NIGHTS OF THE SOUL, to anyone going through difficult times.
