Beauty as a human calling

This week the On Being podcast re-aired one of the last interviews recorded with the Irish poet, theologian and philosopher, John O’Donohue, just before his unexpected death in 2008.

The whole episode is a gift of beautiful words that will feed your mind and soul.

To whet your appetite, here is a taster:

“Beauty isn’t all about just nice loveliness, like. Beauty is about more rounded, substantial becoming. So I think beauty in that sense is about an emerging fullness, a greater sense of grace and elegance, a deeper sense of depth, and also a kind of homecoming for the enriched memory of your unfolding life.”
