"When you cease to fear your solitude, a new creativity awakens in you. Your forgotten or neglected wealth begins to reveal itself. You come home to yourself and learn to rest within. Thoughts are our inner senses. Infused with silence and solitude, they bring out the mystery of inner landscape." - Anam Cara by John O'Donohue
O'Donohue writes, "Friendship is the sweet grace that liberates us to approach, recognize and inhabit this adventure."
In Celtic spirituality, the anam cara friendship stimulates the richness and mystery of life. The Irish believe an individual blessed with anam cara, has arrived at a sacred place.
Friendship becomes an act of recognition and belonging.
