Overview

From a precious oral tradition rooted over 2,500 years in Ireland's past, John O'Donohue's Celtic Wisdom Trilogy brings you this vibrant spiritual legacy, unique in the Western world.

A liberating feast of authentic blessings, insights, and teachings, brought to life by this acclaimed poet, teacher, and Catholic scholar. The Celtic Wisdom Trilogy includes three full-length sessions:

The Inner Landscape

Our bodies are mere outlines of a vast and complex interior world, a landscape of contradiction and mystery. The Inner Landscape explores the themes of self-exile and hardship, and the Celtic way of welcoming paradox and finding precious light in the darkest valleys of our inner terrain.

The Divine Imagination

Too often we remain distanced from what is truly sacred—the world around us and the divine imagination that created it. Here John O'Donohue immerses us in the greatest miracle of Celtic spirituality, namely its tradition of experiencing the divine as a lyrical, tender, creative force not visible, but always present in all things.

The Invisible World

The ancient Celts sensed an invisible world around them, the great unknown from which they came and the source of eternal wonder in their lives. Through prayer, O'Donohue teaches, we may enter directly into this secret immensity and escape the psychological prisons we create for ourselves. With prayers, blessings, poetry, and teachings.

John O' Donohue

John O'Donohue (1956-2008)

In early January 2008, the Sounds True family was deeply saddened by the loss of the Irish poet-philosopher John O'Donohue. John was a one-of-a-kind force of nature: a genius with words, a brilliant thinker, and a professional excavator of the soul. He will truly be missed.

John O'Donohue was an Irish poet and Catholic scholar who was awarded a Ph.D. in philosophical theology from the University of Tubingen. He wrote several books including Anam Cara; Air: Breath of God; Stone as the Tabernacle of Memory; Water: The Tears of the Earth; and Echoes of Memory, a book of poems. John authored the Sounds True audio programs Anam Cara, Beauty: The Invisible Embrace, and Wisdom from the Celtic World. His final work was To Bless the Space Between Us, a collection of Celtic invocations and blessings.
