    When St Patrick came to Ireland in the 5th century AD, he encountered the Celtic people and a flourishing spiritual tradition that had already existed for thousands of years. He also discovered that where the Christians worshipped one God, the Celts had many and found divinity all around them: in the rivers, hills, sea and sky. The ancient Celtic reverence for the spirit in all things survives today - a vibrant legacy of mystical wisdom that is unique in the Western world.
    Now, in this exquisite book, Irish poet and schollar John ODonohue shares with us the secrets of this ancient world. Using authentic Irish prayers and blessings, he reveals the treasures that lie hidden within your own soul and the secret divinity in your relationships. As he traces the cycles of life and nature, he draws from the holy waters of Irelands spiritual heritage to lead you to a place where your heart can be healed and nourished. It is a place wher you will disocer your own anam cara, your true soul friend.

    John Quinn sees Anam Cara as a wellspring of beautiful thought and insight into life, death and the whole gamut of human existence. He quotes ODonohue:

    The life and passion of a person leaves an imprint on the ether of a place. You could say that about ODonohues own life. It left an imprint. His grasp of things and his wonderful language, such as theres nothing as near as the eternal. That was a great comfort to me when Olive died. He is beautiful on ageing. Its a time of harvesting and clearance. I did a number of radio programmes with him. Anam Cara is the product of an extraordinary mind."

    John Quinn wrote a poem in memory of John ODonohue:

    A voice is sent
    To calm our deepest fears.

    Words will wing
    Our dreaming ever high

    A hearty laugh
    Will banish all our tears.
