Creativity, offers Thomas Moore, can make your life sacred. On Thomas Moore on Creativity, the best-selling author of Care of the Soul opens a doorway to a life rich in the blessings of everyday creativity. With a sweeping command of history and art, Moore transports us to the age of the great philosophers, who saw creativity as a direct link to God. Moore calls for a re-imagining of the creative process, into a way of living that nourishes the spirit, and promises to bring awe and beauty to the smallest details of your everyday life. This creativity born of the soul, Moore teaches, is a path to self-enrichment that is open to every one of us. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas Moore.

Writing, according to Thomas Moore, is sacred practice. Though we often don´t think of it in these terms, everything we write - whether a love letter or a shopping list - connects us to the classic tradition of logos, or word. Once a revered practice, guarded by monks in the sanctity of the scriptorium, writing continues to offer us all direct passage to the soul´s innermost corridors. In this recording Moore - the best selling author of Care of the Soul - provides us with a new look at the writer´s art as he discusses the historical, philosophical, and spiritual roots of writing, provides insights on journal writing, letter writing, and the writer´s life, and explores reading and writing as contemplative disciplines. 1.

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. 1.

Amsterdam im Jahre 1662. Die ganze Stadt ist auf den Beinen, um die Hinrichtung der 18-jährigen Elsje zu sehen. Erst vor wenigen Tagen in die Stadt gekommen, um ihre große Schwester zu suchen, erschlug sie ihre Zimmerwirtin und scheint die Tat nicht zu bereuen. Daneben der Maler Rembrandt, dessen Name nicht genannt wird. Sein Leben ist geprägt vom Tod seiner zweiten Ehefrau und dem Bankrott, bei dem er fast den gesamten Besitz verlor, und von der Malerei. Was veranlasste ihn, wenige Stunden nach dem Tod des Mädchens, den Leichnam mit wenigen Strichen für immer festzuhalten? 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Ulrich Grote, Thomas Sarbacher.

Publiée en 1516, L´Utopie est un traité sur la meilleure forme de constitution politique, déguisé en une fiction : un récit de voyage vers l´île d´Utopie, inspiré de la récente découverte du Nouveau Monde. Dans cet éloge crypté et paradoxal de l´humanisme, sur le modèle de La République de Platon, Thomas More nous invite à regarder l´Ancien Monde d´un œil neuf, depuis l´île d´Utopie : lieu imaginaire d´une réconciliation des contraires - la nature et la raison, la sauvagerie et l´artifice -, l´Utopie est un modèle de bonheur, de sagesse et de justice sociale dont pourraient s´inspirer les Européens. Ce texte ésotérique, dont le sens est partout caché - le récit de voyage déguise un traité politique, la carte de l´île d´Utopie dissimule une vanité -, est une critique radicale de la société qui témoigne d´un réalisme politique. Ce livre audio en version intégrale vous est proposé en exclusivité par Audible et est uniquement disponible en téléchargement. 1. French.

Two hundred years of fascinating people and events, The Flying Crossbeam is a ´´predictive fiction´´ that introduces us to Thomas Bennett, a man who, through sharing his own private revelation, unknowingly changes the world. Written as a listenable but scholarly treatise by a man in 2226, the audiobook describes a world of brutal reality and miraculous beauty. Bennett´s philosophy is that of the miniscule ´´now´´ which defines the entire universe and makes all things immediately accessible. His revelation puts humanity on a new path of understanding and empathy. That day is accomplished, however, through great pain and hardship, a quiet revolution brought about in the suffering and heroism of many people over the centuries. Listeners become intimate friends with about a dozen people in the course of the audiobook, and well acquainted with more. Listeners watch the earth´s population suffer through war, famine, political and economic upheaval, and yet experience many moments of peaceful and hopeful reconciliation. Traditional religions are turned inside-out, and humanity rediscovers its heart and soul. The complete list of narrators also includes Ellen Moore, Kim Stefane, and Mike Cutler. 1. Language: English.

From colonial times into the 20th century, our laws and court cases ignored atheism, assuming that all good Americans were religious. Americans came to associate atheism with radical social philosophies that advocated violence - especially anarchism and communism. Avowed nonbelievers were derided, even the famous patriot Thomas Paine. Only in the 20th century, with the passage of laws allowing for conscientious objection to war, did nonbelief enter debates about religious liberty. Still, today every one of the 20 states has God written into its constitution, with eight requiring a belief in God for holding public office.God is everywhere in American public life: on our currency, in the Pledge of Allegiance, and in the national motto. R. Laurence Moore and Isaac Kramnick explore both God´s omnipresence and the dramatic rise in nonbelievers that has led to an ´´atheist awakening´´ intent on holding the country to its secular principles. 1.
