Everything is Sacred

May 15, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

How This and Other Celtic Truths Can Help Us Heal the Planet and Connect Soul to Soul with John Philip Newell

“In Celtic wisdom the sacred is as present on earth as it is in heaven, as immanent as it is transcendent, as human as it is divine, as physical as it is spiritual. The sacred can be breathed in, tasted, touched, heard, and seen as much in the body of the earth and the body of another living being as in the body of religion. It is the true essence of all life.” –John Philip Newell, Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul

In describing John Philip Newell’s latest book, Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul: Celtic Wisdom for Reawakening to What Our Souls Know and Healing the World, his publisher makes a bold claim: 

“The hidden tradition of Celtic spirituality can help us renew our faith, heal the earth, overcome our conflict, and reconnect with ourselves.”

What if this is true? What if hearing directly from one of the leading voices of Celtic spirituality today could transform your relationship with the earth, yourself, and others?

Come be inspired to live, work, and connect from a place deep within that recognizes one of the key underlying principles of Celtic wisdom: everything and everyone is sacred

As Newell often shares, this is wisdom our souls recognize as truth. With his stories, historic examples, and understanding of Celtic spirituality, Newell can help you remember and liberate what you already know. And from this depth of knowing, awareness of how to heal the earth, strengthen your faith, and reconnect with yourself and others can arise.

If you’re grappling with what is mine to do in relation to the earth, needing to renew your faith in God, or seeking to bring your faith journey and your call to help the environment together, then this is the event for you. Join us!
