In 2016, John Philip Newell founded the School of Celtic Consciousness. He did so in the belief that Celtic wisdom is needed at this moment in time, urgently. It is a spiritual tradition in the Christian household that can nurture vision of mind, strength of soul, and compassion of action.
Join us for a time of learning, chant, and spiritual practice rooted in the Celtic vision of John Philip Newell. This is the inaugural gathering of the School of Celtic Consciousness at Montreat Conference Center in Montreat, North Carolina. The School of Celtic Consciousness is a place to nurture a community of shared vision and spiritual practice for transformation in our lives and world. Teachings by John Philip Newell will focus on the central themes of Celtic Spirituality, the sacredness of the earth and the human soul. The theme for the first year curriculum is “In the Beginning was the Gift” (Pelagius, St. Brigid, and Teilhard de Chardin).
