A famous Celtic theologian will study the explanations individuals depart or are exiled from their non secular traditions in “Craving From Residence: The Cry of the Earth,” a digital occasion.
John Philip Newell will host the Could 8 livestream occasion, wherein he’ll, “discover the eager for a spirituality that deeply reconnects us to the sacredness of the earth as dwelling within the perception that paying trustworthy consideration to our yearnings will result in new beginnings.”
The Could 8 livestream occasion is a collaboration of La Foret La Foret Convention and Retreat Middle in Colorado Springs; Denver-based Earth & Soul (earthandsoul.org); Shambhala Mountain Middle of Pink Feather Lakes, Colo.; and Montreat Convention Middle, Montreat, N.C.
The Canadian-born Newell is a resident of Edinburgh, Scotland. He’s founding father of the College of Celtic Consciousness and is an ordained minister of the Church of Scotland. Nevertheless, he not too long ago made the choice to relinquish that title, “to face merely as a trainer within the historical stream of Celtic knowledge, witnessing to the sacredness of the earth and each human being.”
Newell calls himself “a wandering trainer,” although throughout the pandemic his occasions have been extra restricted. Following within the footsteps of wandering Scots who got here earlier than him, Newell seeks “the well-being of the world.”
He’s the creator of quite a few books on matters of spirituality, prayer and meditation. His newest e-book, to be launched July 6, is known as “Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul: Celtic Knowledge for Reawakening to What Our Souls Know and Therapeutic the World.” In it, Newell depends closely on the teachings of Celtic prophets similar to St. Brigid of Kildare, who is understood greatest for her miraculous healings.
The Could occasion is a continuation of a February digital dialogue hosted by Newell that began his “Religious Exile & Seeds of Promise” sequence. Many tuned in to debate their very own “exile from the non secular custom of their inheritance, whether or not in actually leaving church or in trying properly past its bounds for imaginative and prescient and nourishment.”
On Could 8 the sequence will proceed with Newell main those that seek for spirituality towards a dialogue of the Earth’s sacredness. Newell says, “paying trustworthy consideration to our yearnings will result in new beginnings.”
