Publisher's Summary

"When we stand before crucial thresholds in our lives," observes Irish poet and philosopher John O'Donohue, "we have no rituals to protect, encourage, and guide us as we cross over into the unknown. For such crossings, we need to find new words."

In To Bless the Space Between Us, O'Donohue presents an adaptation of his thought-provoking book of the same title, providing comfort and insights to illuminate the passage of our life path. Following seven rhythms of the human journey - Beginnings, Desires, Thresholds, Homecoming, States of the Heart, Callings, and Beyond Endings - more than 80 poetic and gracious invocations in this collection can be used as tools for self-transformation, as meditations for deeper contemplation, or as simple prayers for ourselves or our loved ones.

With blessings such as "For Love in a Time of Conflict", "For Belonging", "For Equilibrium", "On Meeting a Stranger", "In Praise of Earth", and many more, these lyrical selections "will invite you to awaken your own power to bless and will suggest to you the secret world of healing and plenitude and providence that encircles, shelters, and guides your every breath and step".

To Bless the Space Between Us features the music of Irish harpist Áine Minogue.

Timeless Wisdom

I adore this book. John O' Donohue's wisdom enlivens and soothes the spirit. I am glad the man himself narrates his own books! His voice makes one feel happy and comforted. I like the balance of poetry and prose, as he introduces each theme of the blessings. The themes touch on pretty much every aspect of life. There is something for everyone. This is a good book to fall asleep to and to go back to listen again and again!

Rest in Peace the great John O' Donohue

Lovely life journey with the vehicle of poetry.

John O Donohue is such an eloquent yet simple author. Loved every word. Bought the book in print to give to loved ones. Ordered the book as a gift for my Audible friends. A life journey in poetry.

Heartwarming and soul soothing

These blessings were for me prayers in themselves. Sometimes I would find a special gem in two sentences or a phrase that would become just the spiritual breath I needed impart or inhale.
