Discover the Celtic Circle of Belonging

John O'Donohue, poet, philosopher, and scholar, guides you through the spiritual landscape of the Irish imagination.

  • 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

Review:

"John O'Donohue is an unassuming man with a grand sense of humor... charming."-- Joy Redfield Kwapien, author of "The Celestine Journal""This beautifully written book proves that tireless wisdom can bring an amazing understanding about ourselves and the world around us even today."-- Dannion Brinkley author of, "Saved by the Light" and" Peace in the Light"""Anam Cara" is a radiant source of wisdom, a link between the human and the divine. This work is a blessed, rare gem."-- Larry Dossey, M.D., author of "Be Careful What You Pray For, Prayer Is Good Medicine, " and "Healing Words" executive editor, "Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine""A lively spiritual companion to all Celts--or to those who are Celtic in their hearts." -- "Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

Synopsis:

St. Patrick first came to Ireland in the 5th century AD, he encountered the Celts, a unique race of people who found divinity all around them: in the rivers and hills, the sea and sky and in every kind of animal. Surviving to this day, the Celts' reverence for the spirit in all things, and their celebration of the continuous mysteries of everyday existence is a vibrant spiritual legacy unique in the Western world, one that has captured the imaginations of thousands of Americans rediscovering the wisdom of the past. In "Anam Cara" (Gaelic for "soul friend"), O'Donohue takes readers into a world where God's passionate side is celebrated and the Fates are not feared. Exploring themes such as the divinity of solitude, the spirituality of the senses, the mystery of friendship, the beauty of aging and the concept of death in the Celtic tradition, it aims to help readers reconnect with the world around them and awaken the power hidden in their souls.
