Sympathetic book reviews at spirituality site

Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat, media editors for Spirituality and Health magazine since 1996, host the site Spiritualty & Practice: Resources for Spiritual Journeys. It launched in March, 2006 and offers the Brussats' reviews of Thomas Moore's books with links to individual excerpts.

From The Soul of Sex:
"When we actually meet someone who seems to be a potential lover or mate, we may see them surrounded by fantasy. They glow for us, though they do not for their friends. The lover becomes a double star — one radiant branches out from their real presence, while another shines from an unknown source, intensifying the total effect.

"The soul's loves seem to carry on with a different tempo, with different dynamics, and with different results when compared to the ego or to the lived relationship."
