Over the years, her quest to merge diverse religious beliefs and practices through the commonalities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal source of love in all people.

A poet who understood space of love and Kin Domain

Today I am remembering, poet, priest, philosopher, environmentalist, John O’Donohue, a man who left us words which paint upon the human soul the beauty of who we are. John died January 3, 2008 a little more than a year ago. As the first quarter of the year, 2009, transitions into the next, I am reflecting upon my personal tasks for this year of great change. Perhaps this poem, a prayer from his book, To Bless the Space Between Us, will inspire in you the shifting and movement necessary to expand. Blessings, John for your gift of yourself.


To Bless the Space Between Us

by John O’Donohue

“May my mind come alive today

To the invisible geography

That invites me to new frontiers.

To break the dead shell of yesterdays,

To risk being disturbed and changed.

May I have the courage today,

To live the life that I would love,

To postpone my dream no longer,

But do at last what I came here for

And waste my heart on fear no more.”
