I'm a 23 year old who suffers bouts of deep depression - sometimes it feels like there is no way out. I was in therapy all of last year and finished a month ago. This was one of the books that came highly recommended by my therapist, so I thought I'd give it a go. When you feel depressed, it's hard to convince yourself that a book can help you - it's almost a pride thing - "Pffft - no one can help me, no one understands, so what good is a book going to do"!

However, this was just what I needed at that time, and it really opened my eyes to my condition. It comforted me and made me feel normal again - and although it didn't "cure me", it definitely put the wheels of recovery in motion.

Everyone will be able to find a section of the book that is relevant to them - I was a depressed, alcoholic musician that lacked faith in my own musical ability, and at the same time thought I was an undiscovered genius. Yes - there was an even a section about that specifically!!!

There are a lot of self help books out there that promise to rid you of depression forever, but I personally don't think they are helpful or realstic. This is a very spiritual and philosophical approach that will guide you through those dark nights of the soul, and teach you the tools to help deal with your condition.

This book really did change my life. It helped me to stop looking for happiness in all the wrong places, and whenever I'm having a bad spell this book is always within reach to help me out the other side.

PS - I'm aware this review makes me sound like a hippy who sells incense on street corners. Just wanted to let you know that I'm not!

This book answersed all of the questions i had, in terms of my own spiritual journey. It explains why the dark days are so awful and why the light days are so in abundance with joy. Having read many spiritual guidance books, in religeons across the board, i found this to be the definative guide to understanding my own true existence.

God has to make us endure pain, desolation and deep emotion in order for us to appreciate and fully understand the path we are on. If we had only 'positive' days we would not endlessley search for spiritual fulfillment. This journey is fully explained in this book and its a reflective tool that we can use daily to enchance our understanding of a spiritual journey.

The soul is illuminated by positive experiences, the serenity felt lulls the soul into feeling comfortable. however, each stage of the journey brings a deeper, and more desolate emotion. Through this book, you learn to battle through this, and achieve a sense of calm that enables you to proceed to the next stage.

Its a book that i am able to read again and again, each time gaining a deeper understanding of my own spiritual journey. Well worth a read!.

This book says it all. Thomas Moore's sensitivity, perception, humility and depth makes this work the most magical piece of literature! He explains life's entirety! His views about how to care for those dark times and heaviness that many of us experience are so insightful! Instead of being scared of the dark and running away from the shadows (and then trying to cure this "condition", something which most of us have been taught to do in society these days) he embraces them and shows us where the magic, myth and the deepest, most transforming spiritual energy hides: in the darkest abyss of nothingness. Definitely read this one!

I had been going through an extended and extremely difficult - albeit very beautiful - period spiritually. A trusted friend with whom I shared my journey said, "I'm going to lend you a book." I thought, "Oh no, not another book! Almost everybody I speak to at more than a superficial level recommends a book to sort me out!" I politely accepted, however, intending only to thumb briefly through Gerald May's 'The Dark Night Of The Soul.' To my amazement, I devoured every word and was often in tears. Why? For a while before reading, I had come to question the validity of my spiritual experience but almost every paragraph in this book confirmed its authenticity.

Subsequently I ordered three copies for myself. One is heavily annotated with comments like "Yes, yes, yes!" or "That's me!" The second copy is for my bookshelf and the third is for lending to anybody I believe it might help.

Dr. May's treatment of the teachings of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross, which are the subject of this book, is thoughtful and thorough. More than that, it is carried out with great love and insight and is beautifully and clearly written. Contrary to popular belief, the dark night of the soul does not denote great suffering, often seeming to manifest without reason and bringing forth no worthwhile outcome. Rather does it mean that God takes us, in love, to places where we would not or could not go ourselves in order that we might grow spiritually, and while there can be considerable pain, there is also great beauty.

The value of the book for me is that it was confirmational rather than aspirational, that is, it helped me because it confirmed what was already in place in my inner life.
