Anam Cara – Christine Valters Paintner

April 26, 2019

“In the desert, Celtic and Benedictine traditions, it was considered essential to have some kind of soul-level relationship with another person who was further along the path of conscious awareness and spiritual practice . . . . the Gaelic term [for this is] anam cara, which means ‘soul friend.’”
