Summary

Do you have a job - or a vocation? A career, or a calling to a special destiny? In this thought-provoking program, Thomas Moore shares his vision of what we can do to restore fullness and depth to this dispirited dimension of our lives. Moore uncovers the sacred roots of work life, and shows how, even in this age of technology, it remains a direct path to discovering who we really are. Thomas Moore on Meaningful Work explores: the task of finding a true calling; explains why we must allow ourselves to fail; describes how Victorian craftsman William Morris defied "burnout"; suggests ways to make work a more spiritual activity; and provides exercises to resolve money issues and career crises.

Illuminating!

I have always admired people whose entire life seems to be integrated with what they do. they work at a calling with passion. I have wondered why what I do seems to be separate from what I live even though I enjoy or even love what I do. This book brings much clarity around the whole topic of work being more than a job, something you do for money. through the instruction given in this book I now realize my work's significance in the larger scheme of my life. I highly recommend it!

Moore was an assigned reading in grad school

about 15 years ago and he continues to enlighten and guide me. This one and Care of the Soul are my favorites.
