From the Publisher:
Discover the Celtic Circle of Belonging

John O'Donohue, poet, philosopher, and scholar, guides you through the spiritual landscape of the Irish imagination. In Anam Cara, Gaelic for "soul friend," the ancient teachings, stories, and blessings of Celtic wisdom provide such profound insights on the universal themes of friendship, solitude, love, and death as:

  • Light is generous

  • The human heart is never completely born

  • Love as ancient recognition

  • The body is the angel of the soul

  • Solitude is luminous

  • Beauty likes neglected places

  • The passionate heart never ages

  • To benatural is to be holy

  • Silence is the sister of the divine

  • Death as an invitation to freedom
Annotation:
This entrancing book explores the tenets of the Celtic tradition, that mystical, highly spiritual way of looking at the world that prevailed in Ireland and Great Britain for thousands of years before the arrival of Christianity. Using language as inspirational and poetic as that of ancient scholars, John O'Donohue adapts these tenets for use in contemporary society, thus fulfilling the Celtic ideal of merging past with present. The goal here is to step outside of modern life and come to see that the space within the soul is just as vast and mysterious as the space without, and that the doorway between these spaces is the senses. Through Anam Cara ( "Soul Friend" in the Celtic language), O'Donohue points the way toward a more harmonious integration with the visible world of the everyday and the invisible world of the spirit.
