Anam Cara

Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom offers an exploration of the secret universe we all carry inside us, the connections we forge with the worlds of our friends and loved ones, and the products of our worlds reflected in the things we create outside of ourselves. Anam Cara, Gaelic for “soul friend,” is an ancient journey down a nearly forgotten path of wisdom into what it means to be human.

Beauty

Beauty is a gentle but urgent call to awaken. Bestselling author John O’Donohue opens our eyes, hearts, and minds to the wonder of our own relationship with beauty by exposing the infinity and mystery of its breadth. His words return us to the dignity of silence, profundity of stillness, power of thought and perception, and the eternal grace and generosity of beauty’s presence. In this masterful and…

Eternal Echoes

John O’Donohue, a Celtic poet, scholar, and philosopher with an Irish brogue, speaks to the deepest calling of our soul: the longing to belong. “To be human is to belong,” he explains. “Belonging is a circle that embraces everything; if we reject it, we damage our nature. The word ‘belonging’ holds together the two fundamental aspects of life: Being and Longing, the…

Conamara Blues

Translating the beauty and splendor of his native Conamara into a language exquisitely attuned to the wonder of the everyday, John O’Donohue takes us on a moving journey through real and imagined worlds. Divided into three parts — Approachings, Encounters, and Distances — Conamara Blues at once reawakens a sense of intimacy with the natural world and a feeling of wonder at the mystery of our relationship to this world.

Four Elements: Reflections on Nature

“In these meditations John inspires us to look again at the thought patterns and habits that we have created.  He speaks about the elements in a poetic, imaginative way.  He extends to them the presence of an open mind which calls forth a conversation overflowing with beauty and mystery.”

— Pat O’Donohue (Foreword)

Benedictus

We have fallen out of belonging. Consequently, when we stand before crucial thresholds in our lives, 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. What is nearest to the heart is often farthest from the word. This book is an attempt to reach into that tenuous territory of change that we must cross…

Echoes of Memory

In this powerful, evocative collection, master storyteller John O’Donohue explores themes of love and loss, beginnings and endings.

Divine Beauty

In this eagerly awaited follow-up to his international bestsellers ANAM CARA and ETERNAL ECHOES, John O’Donohue turns his attention to the subject of beauty – the divine beauty that calls the imagination and awakens all that is noble in the human heart. In these uncertain times of global conflict and crisis, we are riven with anxiety; our trust in the future has…

Eternal Echoes

This work embarks on a journey of discovery into the heart of the post-modern world – a hungry, homeless world that suffers from a deep sense of isolation and fragmentation. This stems from the need to belong, the most basic of human desires.
