"Anam Cara is a rare synthesis of philosophy, poetry, and spirituality. This work will have a powerful and life-transforming experience for those who read it." —Deepak Chopra 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 be natural is to be holy Silence is the sister of the divine Death as an invitation to freedom

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 O'Donohue 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 Ireland's 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'.

A rollicking adventure-romance set against the beautiful city of San Diego, Anam Cara (which is Gaelic for "friend of the soul") tells the story of ex-patriot T.J. Jameson, who has left her revolutionary days in Ireland behind to start a new life in the states. When she runs into Camryn Wells, the cute blonde photographer turns T.J.'s world upside down. Life could be great, if only T.J. can keep her ex-husband and his drug-dealing friends out of her bar and her romance. And if only she can admit that Camryn is more than a pal, she is T.J.'s Anam Cara.

Through it all, they begin to learn what love, hate, loss, vengeance, hope, and faith can do to break or transform their lives.

Revelations of a Master Drop out

Have you ever dreamed of stepping away from the world, from all the noise and confusion, and finding a place of peace and quiet, where you were utterly content? Is such a thing even possible in our cruel, chaotic, discontented human-world? The most enlightened human beings who ever lived, from Buddha to Christ, Lao Tzu to Leonardo da Vinci, asked themselves the same question, and sought the answer in the same place: in the quiet and solitude of nature. They sought the truth not in abstract words and concepts but within in their own minds and hearts, while immersed in the beauty, health and sanity of the natural world. What price would you pay for the chance to release yourself from fear, pain, confusion and suffering? If I told you the price was giving up everything you owned and retreating to live alone, for 7 years, in the forest, would you pay it? After struggling, striving and failing, for over 50 guilt-ridden, pain-filled years, I was desperate for peace, for relief from my unrelenting worry and dread. I had to find sanity, once and for all, if such a thing were possible in this world. And so I gave up. I surrendered any hope of ever having a “normal job” or “career,” relinquished all connection to living a “normal life,” gave away or sold most everything I owned, left my home and retreated to the woods. I explained my inner turmoil as best I could to my two teenaged girls. In order to be a good father and the man I wanted to be, I had to step away and regain my sanity, or I’d be good for no one. Modern society was a whirlwind that had devastated me and, despite what anyone else thought or felt, I knew I had to find another way or lose my mind. And so I took this illusive bargain, walking away from the insanity of the world, to live in seclusion amongst the coastal giant redwoods of northern California. This is the story of what I discovered when I dropped out.

In Anam Cara: Your Soul Friend and Bridge to Enlightenment and Creativity, Dr. Glenville Ashby explains that a person's soul is an inner resource that, when tapped, will allow an individual to live up to his or her full potential. The persona, the face we present to others, is not our true self. Ego, fear, and pride block our self-awareness. Anam Cara, defined in Celtic belief as a "soul friend," is a person who accepts you as you are. This book explains an Anam Cara's role, the benefits of having a soul friend, and what it will require of you. The relationship between a person and their Anam Cara is mutual. A significant portion of the book details practices which will prepare a person to be ready to work with an Anam Cara.The narrator, Stephanie Murphy, has an expressive and soothing voice, which I found to be hypnotic. Although her narration was flawless, her relaxing tone made it more difficult for me to concentrate on the text. This book is written for people who are eager to examine the possibilities that life can hold for them. Dr. Ashby has studied extensively. He has a broad knowledge base in philosophy, world religion, and psychology. In addition, his experience as a journalist and speechwriter are evident in the quality and style of his writing. The text is enhanced by quotes from a wide range of sources. I found Anam Cara: Your Soul Friend and Bridge to Enlightenment and Creativity persuasive and instructive.

This new edition is even more comprehensive than last year's. The Almanac is exhaustively researched, and the final result is a book that contains the most complete record available of what has and is happening in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The 1999 edition has more information, more facts, and more statistics about what is happening on the island. It is a one-stop archive which covers every aspect of life on the island, from politics to profiles of Irish writers, from population figures to sports, from a detailed chronology of the year to famous last words. Included this year too are major articles from some of Ireland's leading academics, commentators, and public figures. Their insightful, sometimes controversial, but always thought-provoking pieces add considerably not only to the authority and reliability of the Almanac as a reference tool, but also to its usefulness as an up-to-date source for information on current events. Subjects are covered throughout the Almanac under a variety of headings, including: calendar of events; top news stories; quotes of the year; pictures of the year; chronology; obituaries; politics; history; personalities; geography and environment; population; counties and main towns; business and finance; industry, energy, and transportation; agriculture and forestry; tourism; health; law; religion; education; culture; arts; entertainment; media; sports; and useful information.
