Celebrated Celtic teacher, John Philip Newell, will tell the story of his own spiritual exile as a way of addressing the much bigger story of spiritual exile in the Western world today and the search for new beginnings spiritually, politically, and ecologically. Countless numbers of women and men, many of whom are grateful for the essence of their religious inheritance, are nevertheless looking well beyond the walls of their religious inheritance to find nourishment and strength of vision. The yearnings that are at the heart of this search hold within themselves seeds of promise for the way forward. In this livestream session we will reflect together on both the hunger and the hope of spiritual exile today.
The presentation by John Philip will be followed by a shared online meditation as well as the opportunity to submit questions and comments to the moderator of our livestream gathering, some of which John Philip will be able to respond to during the one-hour session.
