Kathleen Hirsch shares her conversation with Thomas Moore, recently published in the journal Anchor. Hirsch met with Moore for breakfast in Cambridge, Massachusetts before publication of Ageless Soul. Moore says:

In the monastery, I learned that ‘to work is to pray.’ What you do is prayer. That got through to me. I’ve always viewed my individual work as drawing out a person’s inner excellence. This was what the Greeks meant when they used the word, ‘therapy,’ which they did quite a bit. Plotinus added the element of beauty. These are my sources. And my writing is my personal daily spiritual practice. As soon as I wake in the morning, I go to my desk.
