Book Overview
The author of Anam Cara describes, in his unique style, rediscovering the true sources of compassion, serenity, and hope in our lives 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--focusing on the classical, medieval and Celtic traditions, on art, music, literature, nature and language. O'Donohue opens our eyes, hearts and minds to the wonder of our own relationship with beauty. Rather than &#8220covering&#8221 this theme, he uncovers it, exposing the infinity and mystery of its breadth. His words return us home to the dignity of silence, the profundity of stillness, the power of thought and perception, and the eternal grace and generosity of beauty's presence. In this masterful and revelatory work, O'Donohue encourages our greater intimacy with beauty, and celebrates it for what it really is: a homecoming of the human spirit.
