Soul Friend-

"According to Celtic spiritual tradition, the soul shines all around the body like a luminous cloud.  When you are very open—appreciative and trusting—with another person, your two souls flow together.  This deeply felt bond with another person means you have found an anam cara, or “soul friend.”  An 'anam cara' always beholds your light and beauty, and accepts you for who you truly are.  When you are blessed with an anam cara, the Irish believe, you have arrived at that most sacred place—home.”     

-John O'Donohue


Midwife for the Psyche-

"I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.”

 -Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes


"You have the need and the right to spend part of your life caring for your soul. It is not easy. You have to resist the demands of the work-oriented, often defensive, element in your psyche that measures life only in terms of output—how much you produce—not in terms of the quality of your life experiences. To be a soulful person means to go against all the pervasive, prove-yourself values of our culture and instead treasure what is unique and internal and valuable in yourself and in your own personal evolution.

-Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen
