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:
  • Woman, You are Set Free

    Topics Explored: Spiritual Direction, Spiritual Disciplines

    Excerpt:

    When I returned to the group, I shared my experience, and someone pointed out that Jesus called her—called me—woman. Yes, I am a mother, a friend, a pastor—but first, I am a woman, a person. First, I am me.

     

     

  • Offer Empty

    Topics Explored: Spiritual Direction, Spiritual Disciplines

    Excerpt:

    Offering empty is not the same as offering nothing. The neighbors did not shake their heads, close their doors and turn this widow away. No, they gave, but they gave empty, enlarging the space for an outpouring of grace.

  • A Brief Intro to the Ignatian Exercises

    Topics Explored: Spiritual Disciplines, Guest Post

    Excerpt:

    For Ignatius the love of God is central. Everything rests upon it.

Upcoming Events

A few of the upcoming events we’re especially excited about:
unnamed (1)

May 28th - July 22nd

Being present to the small moments of our days and “finding God in all things” (thanks, Ignatius), we will explore different ways of seeing and naming the gifts of the season of Ordinary Time together. Keeping a journal or sketchbook as our “commonplace book”, we will come together in groups each week to attend to what-has-been and the glimpses of God (and ourselves!) we are discovering along the way. $129
