InBeing Here Is So Much, acclaimed poet and scholar John O'Donohue invites thought to travel into places in the inner landscape that resist luminosity. Exploring the themes: Belonging as ancient longing, the adventure to wonder; Belonging as a threshold, Suffering as the dark valley of broken belongings; Prayer as spiritual belonging, Absence as the loss of belonging; and Moving towards new horizons of the hearts dream, he reveals the secret compassion in the soul which can orient itself to the most enriching embraces of belonging.

Back cover copy

While we are here, where is it that we are absent from? This is the question that echoes at the heart of all longing.

There is a divine restlessness in the human heart, our eternal echo of longing that lives deep within us and never lets us settle for what we have or where we are. In this exquisitely crafted and inspirational book, John O'Donohue, author of the bestselling Anam Cara, explores the most basic of human desires -- the desire to belong. It's a desire that constantly draws us toward new possibilities of self-discovery, friendship, and creativity.
