EREMOS SUMMER 2022 BOOK REFLECTION
Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul:
Celtic Wisdom for Reawakening to What Our Souls Know and Healing the World
By John Philip Newell
“Newell reaches new depths in his vision of the earth and the human journey. We need this Celtic wisdom urgently.” – Richard Rohr
In the back of many of our minds is concern about climate change and our planet’s health. But overwhelm from the other challenges we’re all facing can keep our attention focused elsewhere. With this book, Eremos seeks to open us to the positive possibilities Celtic spirituality can offer us as we grapple with what is mine to do in relation to the earth.
With John Philip Newell as our guide, we will explore the wisdom of Celtic prophetic figures to help us “deepen our spiritual connection with God, each other, and the earth.”
Please join us on a 4-week exploration of Celtic wisdom and remembering truths found deep within to bring forth hope and possibilities for our and the beloved planet’s future.
