Publisher Comments:

When Saint Patrick first came to Ireland in the 5th century A.D., he encountered the Celtic people with their flourishing spiritual tradition, already thousands of years old. Where the Christians worshiped one God, the Celts had many and in fact, found divinity all around them: in rivers and hills, the sea and sky, and in every kind of animal. The Celtic reverence for the spirit in all things, and their celebration of the continuous mysteries of everyday existence, survive to this day a vibrant spiritual legacy unique in the Western world. On Anam, Irish poet and scholar John O'Donohue blends philosophy, instruction, and spiritual insight, taking you inside this remarkable spiritual synthesis. O'Donohue shares secrets from a world where the Fates are not feared. . . where God's passionate side is celebrated; secrets to help you to reconnect with the world around you and the treasures hidden within your soul.In the oral tradition so beloved of the Celts, O'Donohue shares an intuitive approach to spirituality that takes you beyond spiritual programs to a place where your heart can be truly nourished and healed. You will learn authentic Irish prayers and blessings; how to discover your individual nature; awakening the senses as thresholds of the spirit; understanding the secret divinity in your relationships; how the Irish hospitality toward death can help you become more compassionate, generous, and fearless; and much more. Tracing the cycles of life and nature, this insightful session draws from the holy waters of Ireland's spiritual heritage from the Celts and their Druid shamans, the imbas (inspirational sagas) of the wandering bards, and the sacred fountainhead of the Christian monasteries. Join John O'Donohue for a journey to the island of saints and scholars' where you will discover your own Anam soul friend.
