Description

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
