O'Donohue's Celtic and poetic style burst forth from this collection of beautiful prayers and blessings. And the most powerful aspect of this book is the empowerment it gives to all people to bless. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385522274, Hardcover)

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.

A compilation of blessings and spiritual insights offers readers comfort and encouragement as they make their way through all of the milestones and transitions of life.
