A Celtic Pilgrimage with John O’Donohue
Friday, November 22, 7 p.m.-9 p.m.
Bill Moyers aired this DVD on public television in the spring of 2010. In so many ways, John O’Donohue was the embodiment of Celtic spirituality. He was a priest, writer, philosopher, and poet—a man open to the Spirit in nature and within himself. Let him introduce you to some of his favorite places in rugged western Ireland, the “thin places” where the divine and the human meet.
O’Donohue had a gift for finding the holy in everyday life, and that is what he shares with his viewers in A Celtic Pilgrimage. It is an inspirational DVD, a chance to hear the voice of a man who was able to move so many with his words about Spirit, nature, life, death, suffering, God, and blessing.
Please join us in the Great Hall for a compelling journey through a sacred landscape, where O’Donohue, supported by incredible photography, weaves a rich tapestry of ancient wisdom, personal history, breathtaking imagery, and profound insights. He was a person who did not just study Celtic spirituality; he lived it. He wrote, “Each day is a secret story woven around the radiant heart of wonder. The sacred duty of being an individual is to gradually learn how to live so as to awaken the eternal within you.”
