Description - Eternal Echoes by John O'Donohue

There is a divine restlessness in the human heart today, an eternal echo of longing that lives deep within us and never lets us settle for what we have or where we are. Now, in this exquisitely crafted, inspirational book, John O'Donohue explores that most basic of human desires - the desire to belong. It is a desire that constantly draws us towards new possibilities of self-discovery, friendship and creativity. In Eternal Echoes John O'Donohue embarks upon a journey of discovery into the heart of our post-modern world - a hungry, homeless world that suffers from a deep sense of isolation and fragmentation. With the thousand-year-old shelter of divine belonging now shattered, we seem to have lost our way in this magical, wondrous universe. Here, as we explore perennial themes and gain insight from a range of ancient beliefs, we draw inspiration from Ireland's rich spiritual heritage of Celtic thought and imagination. It is a heritage of profound, mystical wisdom that will open pathways to peace and contentment, and lead us to live with creativity, honour and compassion the one life that has been given to us. Destined to become a timeless classic of vision and hope, this is an imaginative tour de force by one of today's most inspirational writers.

Book Reviews - Eternal Echoes by John O'Donohue

UK Kirkus Review » As humans we all want to be part of something. This book explores why we want to belong and how we can go about fulfilling that desire, by drawing upon Irish folklore, myth and philosophy, and Celtic wisdom to explain the sense of isolation and fragmentation which is our daily experience. Written from an essentially humanist perspective, this will appeal to the spiritual wanderer. (Kirkus UK)
