About this event

CFDM Arizona is proud to sponsor The 2023 Southwest School of Earth & Soul, Celtic Wisdom, the second of the three-year cycle, with a focus on reawakening to the sacredness of Earth through the teachings of Eriugena, the Carmina Gadelica, and John Muir. Participants may join at any stage of the three-year cycle.

The School of Earth & Soul Celtic Wisdom 2 is offered in a retreat format. Program registration includes meals and lodging (single or double occupancy). A commuter option is also available which includes the full program and onsite meals.

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 essential text for this retreat, and the three-year program, is John Philip Newell's Sacred Earth: Sacred Soul. The prayer book for the school is Sounds of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter.
