Anam Cara is an old Irish phrase meaning "soul friend."

As John O'Donohue wrote: "The anam cara was a person to whom you could reveal the hidden intimacies of your life. This friendship was an act of recognition and belonging.
When you had an anam cara, your friendship cut across all convention and category.
You were joined in an ancient and eternal way with the friend of your soul."

In this 6-week series of journal circles, we will use variety of profound and enlightening exercises, techniques, questions and quotations designed to help you to expand your journal-writing skills, uncover deeper layers of personal meaning, and become more familiar with
your authentic inner voice -- your soul friend within. Our objective will be to deepen our relationship to ourselves through intimate journal-keeping. 

We'll devote most of our time to writing, and allow space for reading aloud, reflecting, and sharing our entries (always optional!) 

The spirit of the Journal Workshop Journal Writing Circles is to create a relaxing and inspiring space where you are encouraged to experiment, explore, reflect on your life, give voice to your truths in your journal, and to connect with kindred spirits. No previous writing experience is required. Bring your favorite journal or notebook, pen, and a willingness to go on an Inner Journey.
You may attend any one of these sessions, or join for the whole series of six.
