The writing & works of John O'Donohue (whom I had the privilege to know) are some of the most profound timeless, universal expressions that have ever been published and distributed in our time on our planet. I am so grateful that Sounds True, a company with such integrity and conscientiousness continues to make his work available at reasonable prices so that others can appreciate this great soul's legacy. Thank you Sounds True.

Inspiring, beautiful and deeply comforting. I have already listened to it several times and have told friends about it. O'Donohue is a rare and unique voice, both poetic and intellectual. A marvelous interdisciplinary thinker. I have been deeply nourished by his writings, and have read excerpts from them over the phone to distant friends. This audio collection is a treasure.

A stunning O'Donohue coverage of Celtic spirituality in this three part series of what he calls "lectures". He shows us the precious nature of Celtic spiritual wisdom as it found its way to the western coastline of the green isle... a brilliant spiritual legacy for all humanity.

I've loved reading John O'Donohue's books for years, and to have the pleasure of listening to his voice is a joy. What a gift he was. He, like so many authors Sounds True publishes, is such an example of why we should allow ourselves to be who we really are.

I love this trilogy. I have a Celtic background so it really speaks to me. When I hear John's voice I have an inner picture of green hills and beautiful soil, which is so comforting in this world today.

These CD's are precious. John has such enthusiasm for the Celtic spirituality that he brings it alive and passes it along to us to share. Its like he loves it so much he can't contain his joy. And the feeling is contagious! I am hanging onto each word and taking it deeper to experience the spirit of the Celtic world deeper in my soul. Priceless!

John O'Donohue's sound recordings are a great fount of wisdom for the these times. I never cease to marvel at John's tremendous scholarship combined with his wit and imagination: a truly gifted and giving person. I listen to the recordings very often and always find nourishment and refreshment and something new to reflect on.
