Drawing on the writings of John O’Donohue and others we will explore the theme of anam chara – soul friend.
John O’Donohue’s first book “Anamchara” published in 1997 became a best seller. This was followed by Eternal Echoes: Exploring our Hunger to Belong, in 1998. Conamara Blues, a collection of Poetry was published in 2001, followed by Divine Beauty: The Invisible Embrace, in 2004. His beautiful book of blessings, Benedictus was published shortly before his sudden death in 2007.
John’s legacy directs our search for intimacy to crucial thresholds: tradition and modernity, past and future, life and death, the visible and the invisible world. At the heart of John’s awakened beliefs was the premise that ancient wisdom could offer desperately needed nourishment for the spiritual hunger experienced in our modern world. John is fondly remembered by an international readership as one who could blend critical analytic thought with imaginative evocation, enabling people to release themselves from the false shelter of the familiar and repetitive to become agents of transformation and change. www.johnodonohue.com
