Banyen's Description: 

A beautiful companion to To Bless the Space Between Us, this is a welcome collection of insights from one of the most charismatic and inspirational spiritual writers of the last twenty years.

When author John O’Donohue passed away suddenly in January 2008, he left behind a remarkable body of work on the subjects of spirituality and Celtic mysticism. Walking in Wonder is a poignant and inspirational collection of conversations and presentations from O’Donohue’s work with Irish broadcaster John Quinn. These timeless conversations, collated and introduced by Quinn, span a number of years and explore themes such as wonder, landscape, the medieval mystic Meister Eckhart, the gifts of aging, our fascinating relationship with memory, and why we need not fear death. Presented in O'Donohue's inimitable lyrical style, and filled with rich insights that will help to feed the “unprecedented spiritual hunger” that he observed in modern society, Walking in Wonder is a celebration of the beauty and mystery of everyday things.

From the mountains of Connemara to friendly pub conversations, John O’Donohue could make the most numinous questions personalHis words still breathe with vibrant life. A foreword is written by Krista Tippett and narration (on the unabridged audio edition) is by John’s brother Pat O’Donohue.

Highlights include:   

  • Why the insights of mystics like Meister Eckhart are more relevant than ever in a world prioritizing image over substance
  • Contemplation of nature, its landscapes, and our intertwined relationship with both
  • A reading of one of the special dawn Easter masses given by John at Corcomroe Abbey
  • Poems and blessings in celebration of the ache of absence, imagination, and the turning of the seasons
  • Life’s hidden narratives—whether in the history of mountains or your inner world.

Among John O’Donohue’s other books are Anam Cara and Beauty: The Invisible Embrace. Also available is a beautiful DVD of John called Celtic Pilgrimage with John O’Donohue.
