Author Treasa O'Driscoll, raised in a large Catholic family in Ireland, met and married a Canadian devoted to the Celtic Consciousness, and raised three sons and a daughter. Today residing in Barrie, Canada, she performs public concerts of poetry and song in Europe, the United States, Ireland, Scotland, Canada and England.
Celtic Woman explores with open honesty and engaging irony how cycles of personal discovery have connected international performing artist Treasa O’Driscoll to heaven and earthbut not the way you’d expect.
This surprising memoir of an Irish woman attuned to poetic updrafts and spiritual downloads in the lives of real people, many of them celebrities in Ireland and North America she counts as personal friends, exudes her Celtic heritage on every page.
Her encounters in life have been testing, tragic, romantic, and highly comic. O’Driscoll’s life entwines with musicians, poets, teachers, artists, actors, farmers, unexpected strangers and familiar drunkards. Their lives all become a single interwoven tapestry of common meaning connected at the level of the soul.
