John O’Donohue Interview on On Being

January 28, 2018

This is Krista Tippett’s wonderful interview with the poet/philospher John O’Donohue from August 6, 2015- his last interview before his death. It is a deep conversation into beauty, life, love, language, and the imagination. Enjoy.

 

“So I believe that deep in the heart of each of us, there is this imagining, imaginal capacity that we have. So that we are all doing it.” John O’Donohue

The Inner Landscape of Beauty

The Irish poet and philosopher John O’Donohue was beloved for his book Anam Ċara, Gaelic for “soul friend,” and for his insistence on beauty as a human calling. In one of his last interviews before his death in 2008, he articulated a Celtic imagination about how the material and the spiritual — the visible and the invisible — intertwine in human experience. His voice and writings continue to bring ancient mystical wisdom to modern confusions and longings.

    Thank you for sharing this interview. John O’Donohue’s poem “For a New Beginning” has been my guiding light on more than one occasion. When things are bleak, I remember his poem “For Light… “light cannot see inside of things. That is what the dark is for.” Namaste
