Anam Cara Spirit-Philip Hilton - Shamanic Services

Anam Cara Spirit Course


By Philip Hilton

Anam Cara: the name comes from the old Celt and is still found in use in Ireland today. Roughly translated it means Soul Friend. The idea being that when two people come together so completely, their auras merge and so in doing there is an openness, a heart closeness that defies normal everyday functionality. The bond formed knows no barriers or boundaries and allows for a person to reach within the other and see that person’s true potential.

Saint Bridget once said that “A person without an Anam Cara is like a body without a head".

This early Celtic practice was merged into the new Christian ways and formed part of The Celt Christian Faith. In an energetic sense there is no distance, no time and nothing that is not part of the wholeness that is God/Goddess. In this way as we work through the course together I am able to forge such an energy bond with you over any distance, as to spirit a thousand miles might as well be an inch.

I am able to offer you the Anam Cara Spirit Course as the result of my many years of service to the world of spirit. I have been a practicing Druid for over nine years and a healer and spiritual development teacher for many years. I bring these skills and techniques up to date with my qualifications and experience as a therapist, counsellor and life coach. I am also a registered member of the UK charity ‘Counselling’.

We all have times during our life when we are unsure as to the next step to take on our spiritual evolution. Or perhaps we have all of the so called good things in life, but somehow feel that we’ve still missed the boat. You may have an existing spiritual practice and feel that somehow it has grown stale. Or you might be looking for something to fill a deep hunger you are feeling, and have no idea how to go about satisfying it. You may have walked away from a religious belief system and miss the spiritual elements, if not the dogma. On the other hand, you might be seeking a form of organised religion and that too is wonderful, powerful and empowering, if you know how to connect with it.

We are all unique; don’t believe that, just take a look at your fingerprint. I can offer you a sacred space over the course of five weeks, energetically filled with compassion and unconditional love. The only two things I will ask of you during our time together will be truth and trust. With this foundation, and through weekly meditations and exercises  we can work together to find your own answers and explore your own truth.

Sometimes we need to be prepared to look beyond the light and the brightness and instead allow ourselves to see the darkness, for this serves us too.

We will work together over the course of a Five-Part Distance Course. You will work through this and send me your completed exercises via email. You will have unlimited email support during the course.
