When we stand before crucial thresholds in our lives, asks poet and philosopher John O'Donohue, where can we turn for guidance and protection? On To Bless the Space Between Us, he shares words of wisdom and encouragement to help us traverse such crossings. Covering seven universal levels-Beginnings, Desires, Thresholds, Homecomings, States of the Heart, Callings, and Beyond Endings-O'Donohue delivers with uncommon clarity and lyrical beauty a series of invocations and blessings for everyday grace and contemplation. To illuminate pathways of presence through the geography of new worlds, he calls forth the omnipresent aid of the divine that will lead us beyond our limitations. For it is when we are true to the call of experience, O'Donohue assures, that we are true to God. In the tradition of his classic Anam Cara (Bantam Books 9780553505924), To Bless the Space Between Us is presented with an earthy eloquence and incomparable resonance by this master of Celtic consciousness-offering listeners an atmospheric and thought provoking collection that rekindles the passionate heart. Music by acclaimed Irish harpist Aine Minogue.
