In 2016, John Philip Newell began a teaching initiative that is called The School of Earth & Soul. Its purpose is to reawaken awareness of the sacred in all things through the recovery of Celtic wisdom for today and to help translate this awareness into compassionate action. The School follows a three-year cycle of teaching in its annual retreats. Participants may join at any stage in the three-year cycle and attend any of the Earth & Soul venues across the country.
Celtic Wisdom 2: Sacred Earth focuses on reawakening to the sacredness of Earth through the teachings of Eriugena, the Carmina Gadelica, and John Muir.
