From the author of the bestselling Anam Cara comes a beautiful collection of blessings to help readers through both the everyday and the extraordinary events of their lives.

John O’Donohue, Irish teacher and poet, has been widely praised for his gift of drawing on Celtic spiritual traditions to create words of inspiration and wisdom for today. In To Bless the Space Between Us, his compelling blend of elegant, poetic language and spiritual insight offers readers comfort and encouragement on their journeys through life. O’Donohue looks at life’s thresholds—getting married, having children, starting a new job—and offers invaluable guidelines for making the transition from a known, familiar world into a new, unmapped territory. Most profoundly, however, O’Donohue explains “blessing” as a way of life, as a lens through which the whole world is transformed.

O’Donohue awakens readers to timeless truths and shows the power they have to answer contemporary dilemmas and ease us through periods of change.

This book inspired me.

This volume has some of my favorite spiritual poetry, addressing the different passages of life both good and bad: the birth of a child, the loss of a loved one, love, sadness, friendships, the passing of time. I find that reading these calms and centers me, all in beautiful lyrical writing. I highly recommend and have bought this book as gifts for family and friends during difficult times. I will have to check out his other books as the previous comment said his other stuff is good too, can't wait!
