Anam Cara

of Fia Rua

Anam Cara ... soul friend, kindred spirit, confidant, spiritual guide. In the Celtic tradition "soul friends" are considered an essential and integral part of spiritual development.  A person to whom you can reveal the hidden mysteries of your life. This friendship is an act of recognition and belonging.

Fia Rua, Irish for Red Deer, is the spiritual ally of forest  dwellers and earth tenders.  My life is inspired by the Fianna, forest shamans of ancient Ireland, and the Deer Clan of the Cherokee who walked upon this land. 

They are spiritual ancestors traveling beside me awakening dreams and visions... heroic ancestors who have struggled courageously for the good in the world. 

“Truth in our hearts.  Strength in our hands.  Consistency in our tongues.” 

motto of the Fianna

your anam cara ...

Pat, your nature guide
