How to Feel Free | Donal O'Leary | TEDxTralee

His parents grew up on two separate, but adjoining small ancestral farms in East Kerry, in the south-west of Ireland. Donal's early life, growing up on the paternal farm, was much influenced by horses, cows, dogs, foxes, rabbits, the sound of the corn crake at dusk, the soothing sound of flowing water and the shadows of the clouds creeping over the landscape. He sometimes says "you can't get much more rooted than that", referring, primarily, to the two ancestral farms! That's the backdrop and the soundtrack to his life of philosophising, contemplating, reflecting (soul searching) and wondering about life's purpose, meaning and possibilities. About twenty years ago, a new, deep and insatiable interest in health got added on top of 'that base'. He feels that the 'whole sculpture' is a summary of his life.
