To Bless the Space Between Us is the last book written by well-known and cherished Irish teacher and poet John O'Donohue before his untimely death. The book addresses what he considers to be the seven major times in the personal journey of life. Each chapter begins with a short introduction and is followed with prayer poetry on a variety of topics under the subject O'Donohue is addressing in that particular chapter. From looking at birthdays and new parents under Thresholds to addiction, grief and beauty under States of the Heart, everyday and extraordinary events that many people experience are addressed with lyrical and meaningful poetry in To Bless the Space Between Us. As the ultimate form of intimacy, blessings can break down barriers between people. "The gift of the world is our first blessing. The word blessing evokes a sense of warmth and protection; it suggests that no life is alone or unreachable." O'Donohue goes on to say he hopes the book will illuminate the gift a blessing can be, the doors a blessing will open and the healing and transformation it can bring. "Awaken your spirit to adventure; Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk; Soon you will be home in a new rhythm, For your soul senses the world that awaits you".
