About the Event

In 2016 John Philip Newell began a teaching initiative that is now called The School of Earth & Soul (formerly The School of Celtic Consciousness.) 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 and justice.

The school follows a three-year cycle of teaching and spiritual practice 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.

This year, San Damiano is offering:

Celtic Wisdom 3: Sacred Vision

Reawaken to the sacredness of the human imagination and compassionate action through the teachings of Alexander John Scott, George MacLeod, and Kenneth White.

The essential text for the three-year program is John Philip Newell’s Sacred Earth Sacred Soul. And the shared prayer book of the school is Sounds of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter.

Check-in on Friday is from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM.  Dinner is served at 7:00 PM.
The retreat concludes with lunch at noon on Sunday.
