An invitation to soul friendship.

About Anam Cara

Welcome! My name is Tara Owens, and as the executive director of Anam Cara Ministries, I’m delighted that you are here. Our vision for Anam Cara is to provide a place dedicated to the practice of soul friendship, coming alongside one another in order to facilitate healing, wholeness, holiness, and spiritual formation.

Slowing Down

A few things we think are worth experiencing with intentionality and without haste:
  • I Believe in Resurrection

    Topics Explored: Easter

    Excerpt:

    “I believe in resurrection, not confined to a Sunday morning, but unleashed in the cosmos…”

  • The First Mention of Love

    Topics Explored: Easter, Holy Week, Resurrection

    Excerpt:

    What God is showing us, what Abraham and Isaac are participating in, is real love. Love that gives away the beloved with open hands. Love that offers the one it loves as a sacrifice. Love that is obedient unto death.

     

  • Practicing Resurrection Through the Eyes of the Heart

    Topics Explored: Easter, Resurrection, Guest Post

    Excerpt:

    The season of Easter spans 50 days of celebrating the resurrection and culminating in Pentecost.  Yet, for many of us, Easter Sunday comes and goes and we forget this call to practice resurrection in an ongoing way.

Coming Soon: Rabbi Noah Scripture Circles

These Scripture Circles are led by our visiting teacher, Rabbi Noah, from Boston. Scripture Circles—an experience of community centered around the Word—are an experience of studying the Scriptures that is practical and pastoral, scholarly & mystical, personal & communal. Each Scripture Circle is a remarkable experience of communion with God & others—a unique experience made more so by your participation: no one else has your story, your eyes, & the gifts you bring to studying Scripture.

June 2, 2021 through June 13, 2021 (Please see website calendar for registration info)

Join us in The Anam Cara Abbey

Chances are, you’re here because you support the work of Anam Cara Ministries in some way. Maybe you’ve read one of Tara’s books and resonated with the content, or you’ve been encouraged by the daily posts on Anam Cara’s Facebook page. Maybe you are a spiritual director, a recipient of spiritual direction, or someone who’s joined us for a Scripture Circle. Or maybe you just love the idea of promoting soul friendship in the world.

Whatever way you’ve come to Anam Cara, we are so glad that you’re here!

We say “we” intentionally, because this is a place that we’ve built together over the past ten years. It’s a place where people are reminded (again and again and again) that they are the beloved of God. It’s a place of prayer and contemplative practice, of falling down and getting back up again. It’s a place of community and hope, where stories are shared and creativity is practiced. It’s a wild, holy place of spiritual companionship and friendship in all its messy and beautiful forms.
