In Celtic Christianity, an Anamchara is a soul friend, a companion and mentor (often across the miles and the years) in life's long journey through the spiritual realm. Soul friendship is a commitment to both accept and challenge the other; to cut across all divisions to the truth that is found everywhere, in all of life. Anamchara Books is committed to creating a community of soul friends by publishing books that lead us into deeper relationships with God, the Earth, and each other.

Soul Writing
The Journey Within
March 9-15, 2014
Do you hear a persistent voice calling you to write? Does that voice inspire you? Excite you? Scare you? Are you ready to leave the warmth and comfort of your emotional “home” and take a journey into the unknown? At Soul Writing workshops, you’ll join a group of other writers on this same journey. You’ll discover the practical connections between soul work and writing.

Join us March 2014 at a rural convent in Mendham, New Jersey, for a week of writing and discovery. Together we’ll launch out on an adventure that will lead you into your deepest Self—and from there to the pages of your own published book. This is an opportunity to grow, both spiritually and as a writer, while you follow the path that leads into your own soul.
