Walking in Wonder: Eternal Wisdom for a Modern World. (CD-Audio)
From the mountains of Connemara to friendly pub conversations, John O’Donohue had the ability to make the most numinous questions personal. Walking in Wonder: Eternal Wisdom for the Modern World shows that even though this beloved poet and philosopher is no longer among us, his words still breathe with vibrant life.
Including a foreword written by Krista Tippett and narration by John’s brother Pat O’Donohue, this unabridged audiobook presents a collection of new teachings. Based on conversations over years with Irish broadcaster John Quinn, these selections include thoughts on the gifts of aging, our fascinating relationship with memory, and why we need not fear death.
Why the insights of mystics like Meister Eckhart are more relevant than ever in a world prioritizing image over substance
• Contemplation of nature, its landscapes, and our intertwined relationship with both
• A reading of one of the special dawn Easter masses given by John at Corcomroe Abbey
• Poems and blessings in celebration of the ache of absence, imagination, and the turning of the seasons
• Life’s hidden narratives—whether in the history of mountains or your inner world
