9780060957261: Beauty: The Invisible Embrace

Beauty does not linger, it only visits.
Yet beauty's visitation affects us and invites us into its rhythm,
it calls us to feel, think, and act beautifully in the world:
to create and live a life that awakens the Beautiful.

Beauty is a gentle but urgent call to awaken. Bestselling author John O'Donohueopens our eyes, hearts, and minds to the wonder of our own relationshipwith beauty by exposing the infinity and mystery of its breadth. His wordsreturn us to the dignity of silence, profundity of stillness, power of thought andperception, and the eternal grace and generosity of beauty's presence. In this masterfuland revelatory work, O'Donohue encourages our greater intimacy with beauty andcelebrates it for what it really is: a homecoming of the human spirit.As he focuses on the classical, medieval, and Celtic traditions of art, music, literature,nature, and language, O'Donohue reveals how beauty's invisible embraceinvites us toward new heights of passion and creativity even in these uncertain timesof global conflict and crisis.

Book Description:

"When we awaken to the call of beauty, we become aware of new ways of being in the world," teaches John O'Donohue. The beautiful unites your feelings, your thoughts, and your dreams--it brings together all the different dimensions of your life. On Beauty: The Invisible Embrace, O'Donohue inducts listeners into this eternal world that lies beyond form and function. "The human soul is always hungry for beauty. It can be sought everywhere: in landscape, furniture, clothes, love, religion ... and in ourselves," he explains. Perhaps now, more than ever before, is the time to awaken and invoke beauty. There is a great coarseness in our time; it can be seen in our language, in the way we hold life, and in the way that we behave toward each other. Beauty: The Invisible Embrace offers listeners the opportunity to truly experience the beautiful, which--according to this Irish author, poet, and scholar--is to experience unity with the Divine. Drawing from his own Celtic wisdom and the writings of Keats, Rilke, Thomas Aquinas, and others, John O'Donohue guides listeners through five hours of poetry, vision, and imagination to attune to "that which shows us the surprise at the heart of everything."

About the Author:

John O'Donohue was awarded a Ph.D. in philosophical theology from the University of Tübingen in 1990. He is the author of several works, including a book on the philosophy of Hegel, Person als Vermittlung; two collections of poetry, Echoes of Memory and Conamara Blues; and two international bestsellers, Anam Cara and Eternal Echoes. He lectures and holds workshops in Europe and America, and is currently researching a book on the philosophical mysticism of Meister Eckhart. He lives in Ireland.
