Anam Cara – Christine Valters Paintner 

You two know who you are. Thank you every day

Pastor Michael Moore's Blog

“Brigid believed that having a soul friend, or anam cara, was also an essential part of healing on the spiritual journey. She says anyone without one “is like a body without a head.” The soul friend is the one who helps us to become whole again, who witnesses our journey with love and compassion, and who challenges us in the hard places where we fight against ourselves over and over.”
— Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics

Who is the one that bears witness to your journey with love and compassion? Who is your anam cara who constantly challenges you lovingly to push against your own self-imposed limiting boundaries?
