On Becoming a Beautiful Mind – John O’Donohue

The Art Of Developing A Beautiful Mind

Follow the link for this brief and poignant summary of a talk that John intended to give in Canada in 2008 – had death not intervened.  It seems to sum up some of the essence of John, and also part of the foundation of the person-centred approach to therapy (and living).

‘Your mind is your greatest treasure. We become so taken up with the world, with having and doing more and more that we come to ignore who we are and forget what we see the world with. The most powerful way to change your life is to change your mind. In this evening’s talk, we will explore ways of awakening, enriching and refining your mind. We will use lecture, conversation, story, poetry and meditation.’
