If you are seeking a deeper meaning in life, you will find some here as John O’Donohue explores and reveals the ancient wisdom of the Celts. Friendship, landscape, death, time, language, the seen and the unseen–all are illuminated through the Celtic consciousness. Compared to the “linear abstract monotheism” of our modern world, O’Donohue notes that “one of the lovely things about the Celtic sensibility is the co-existence of differing dimensions. …The invisible was just as important, if not more important, than the visible.” Let O’Donohue’s profound spirituality melt into your consciousness as his words find their way to the “tabernacle of your heart.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
