Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

When we stand before crucial thresholds in our lives, observes Irish poet and philosopher John O'Donohue, 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.

On To Bless the Space Between Us, O'Donohue presents an adaptation of his thought-provoking book of the same title, providing comfort and insights to illuminate the passage of our life path.

Following seven rhythms of the human journey--Beginnings, Desires, Thresholds, Homecoming, States of the Heart, Callings, and Beyond Endings--more than 80 poetic and gracious invocations in this collection can be used as tools for self-transformation, as meditations for deeper contemplation, or as simple prayers for ourselves or our loved ones.

With blessings such as For Love in a Time of Conflict, For Belonging, For Equilibrium, On Meeting a Stranger, In Praise of Earth, and many more, these lyrical selections will invite you to awaken your own power to bless, and will suggest to you the secret world of healing and plenitude and providence that encircles, shelters, and guides your every breath and step.

To Bless the Space Between Us features the music of Irish harpist ine Minogue.

   spiritual but not religious
There is a set of blessings. The essence of experiences like new life, a change in vocation, the excitement of a new home, and death are captured in O'Donohue. If you are in a field that cares about people, this book is a great resource.
   A fitting and inspiring little treasure!
This book was given to us as a gift. Several have been purchased to give to other people. Support or inspiration during a loss. For a wedding gift, it is a nice little treasure. It's used for birthdays, graduation and a remembrance of a loved one. It's a nice addition to Graduation, a baby or illness.
   Favorite resource
There are a lot of special occasions when I read this book again. The blessings allow me to travel through some difficult times. A few years ago, someone gave me a copy of one of the blessings upon the death of my youngest child. I still read it because it gives me profound experience validity and meaning.
   ... a poem for every moment of life and I love to read them before/during special moments
This book has a poem for every moment of life and I love to read them before special moments. When hanging out with friends, like before a meditation.
   Beautiful and lyrical
I found out about this book from my yoga teacher, who read one of the blessings aloud to the class in honor of the teacher who is moving away. I was hooked. This isn't a story, but a book. Changes, beginnings, new houses, new parents, it's got it. When I say they're gorgeous, I mean they are. You'll want to give these blessings to yourself and those you love. A friend of mine lost her mother unexpectedly and I sent a copy to her.
There are many occasions from birth to death when this book is presented as a blessing. Each one is a gem.
   Books smelled like laundry detergent/dryer sheets
I love the book but my package was scented with laundry detergentdryer sheetsynthetic fragrance and I am allergic to these fragrances. The seller was Disappointed.
   Wonderful life changing poems. Text color makes it very difficult to read.
This book has a lot of gems on every page. The publisher printed this book with blue text and yellow for the titles of the poems. The book is hard to read and it takes away from the pleasure of enjoying it.
   Blessings like poetry
We like this book. O'Donohue's blessings are poetry. His words make us ponder our lives, the world, our actions and our God in a way that is so inviting. People of faith enjoy the richness that it has to offer. People outside of faith love it. It's one of our most frequent gifts. Can't recommend it highly enough.
   A good book of blessings to begin and end the day.
At my church, I heard about this book and was interested in it. I like A Morning Offering and the Before Sleep. I liked the A Blessing For the New Year. The book is in great condition and looks brand new, even though it was listed as used. New Born babies, when a person retires, and other blessings are all blessings.
