We’ve woven together the late Irish poet John O’Donohue’s reading of his poem with his friends’ photographs of the Celtic landscapes he loved.
About the Project
Poetry, David Whyte says, is language against which we have no defense. We inhabit a moment in which defended language is practically all we know, and so we are re-learning our basic human need of poetry to flourish. Many of our wise guests spontaneously bring a poem into their reflections on mystery and meaning in life. Take pleasure in this compilation of poems — from Mary Oliver to Wendell Berry, from John O’Donohue to Rumi to Pablo Neruda and many many more. Listen. Read. Watch. Enjoy.
