Phil Kenney

Phil Kenney is a practicing psychotherapist in Portland, Oregon, where he lives with his wife and two teenage sons. He is the author of four books of poetry, including Hours of Blue and Hymns for the Speechless.

“You will know the compassion of the dead when you remember the stories within your stories. When you awaken to the rise and fall of memory’s magic and peer into the groundless depth of your being…”


Radiance is a love song, an epic poem.  Though it begins in the darkness of personal and national tragedy, it soars with the discovery of that which enlivens and sustains all life.  It reveals the inseparable nature of the psychological and the spiritual and the remarkable relationship of suffering with the ever-present and radiant source of being.
