Thomas Moore

Thomas Moore is the author of the New York Times bestselling Care of the Soul and 19 other books on cultivating a deeper, soulful life. He was a monk for 12 years, a musician, a university professor and a psychotherapist. Today, he lectures widely on holistic medicine, spirituality, psychotherapy and the arts.

Oprah Winfrey referred to him as one of the top elders of the spirituality movement in our time. He has been awarded numerous honours, including the Humanitarian Award from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University.

Three of his books (The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life, Dark Nights of the Soul and Writing in the Sand) have won the prestigious Books for a Better Life award. He is a patron of Re-Vision, a London centre of spirituality and counselling, and is on the board of Turning Point, a bereavement counsellors training programme in Dublin, Ireland. He writes regular columns for Resurgence, Spirituality & Health and The Huffington Post.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

One of the great figures of the Romantic age, Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 1834) is known both for his poetry and prose, and for producing Lyrical Ballads with William Wordsworth, a work which revolutionized English poetry.

Plagued by debts and laudanum addiction, he left many pieces unfinished, yet his extraordinary influence was felt in literary figures as diverse as Wordsworth, Mary Shelley and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

James Hogg

James Hogg (1770-1835) was born near Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. From a young age he was determined to be a poet like Burns. He became friends with Walter Scott and in 1810 he went to Edinburgh to seek a literary career.

His most well-known work, The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, made little impact when it first appeared (anonymously) in 1824, but has since won critical interest and attention as a classic of the Scottish canon. He continued to publish poetry and prose until his death in 1835.

Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson is a much-loved Australian actor with 20 years experience, best-known for his work on THE SECRET LIVES OF US, CRACKERJACK, UNDERBELLY II, RUSH and as the star of the hit biopic MOLLY. In recent times he is more proud of his work as a breast cancer advocate and determined unicyclist.

He won a Gold Logie in 2017 for his work on MOLLY and was named the Victorian of the Year for 2017 for his charity work to vanquish cancer. He has retired from acting until he has raised $10M for cancer research. So far he and his sister Connie have raised $7M.

John Keats

John Keats (1795-1821) was one of the most important poets of the Romantic period.

A doctor by training before, he was the author of some of the most widely-loved poems in the English language, including "Ode to a Nightingale", "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" and "The Eve of St. Agnes."

William Blake

William Blake was born in London in 1757. He was apprenticed to a master engraver and then studied at the Royal Academy under the guidance of Joshua Reynolds. In 1789 he engraved and published Songs of Innocence and the contrasting Songs of Experience came later in 1794. A poet, painter and printmaker of great originality and imagination, his work was largely unrecognized during his lifetime and he struggled to make a living. Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. He died in 1827.
