In Celtic cultures the role of the anam cara, or soul friend, was to offer encouragement and vision for the pilgrimage of life. 

Following that time honored tradition, Anam Cara Retreats offers both individuals and communities wisdom and companionship for the journey.

From retreat planning and leadership for individuals and faith based communities to journeys through sacred landscapes with kindred spirits, let us help you discover and deepen the movement of the spirit in your life, your community, and the world.

Ancient Wisdom for Today's Journey

Reflect on the gifts of community. 
What do you receive from your community?  What are the gifts or resources you have to share with others?

Consider what you need to fertilize your work and ensure a good harvest. 

Take time to nurture the important relationship in your life.
