John O'Donoghue turns his attention to the subject of beauty - the divine beauty that calls forth the imagination and all that is noble in the human heart and soul. As he explores the post-modern world's spiritual hunger, he focuses on the Celtic tradition, on nature, language and art, to lead us to a greater understanding of how true beauty is an ancient and continuous presence among us - and how, when awakened, can inspire us to new passions and heights of creativity.
