About the “Anam Cara”

“In the Celtic tradition, there is a beautiful understanding of love and friendship. One of the fascinating ideas here is the idea of soul-love; the old Gaelic term for this is anam cara. Anam is the Gaelic word for soul and cara is the word for friend. In the early Celtic church, a person who acted as a teacher, companion, or spiritual guide was called an anam cara.” ~ John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom 

About the Learning Circle

It used to be the hearth of a home was considered to be its heart. It was beside it that family members would gather telling stories filled with teachings and wisdom.

It is the hope of the founders of this virtual space that those who frequent it experience the same.

Kathy Hawn

Kathy Hawn is a Certified Life Coach and Reiki Master in Myrtle Beach, SC where she owns and operates her own business, Inspiration From Within, LLC.

She was born with sensitive physic skills although she kept it mostly to herself as she pursued a traditional career in business. Upon “awakening” to her experience and truth she was able to see how her ability to connect with people and spirits brought healing and comfort to others.

Her connection with “the other side”, as she refers to it, is experienced through hearing and seeing, as well as other heightened senses.

Kathy’s low-key approach and her ability to listen and interact on an individual level has earned her a loyal following for her business in a relatively short period.
