"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 Áine Minogue.

I listed to the audio CD over and over as I drive --- so many of these poem blessings just "stop me in my tracks" with their power, intensity. This man truly captures raw emotion. His voice (Irish accent) is beautiful. These blessings lift me up and I am sending to my brother who is grieving a divorce. (Posted on August 27, 2013)

Beautiful blessings and invocations. Not really useful for me. I gave it to a Methodist pastor as she thought it would be useful in her pastoral work. (Posted on July 21, 2011)
