Drawing on the lost wisdom of the Celtic world, John Philip Newell speaks it afresh into the heart of this moment in time, addressing the most critical issues facing humanity today.  He invites us to reawaken to what we most deeply know, the sacredness of the earth and the human soul.

Led by John Philip Newell, internationally acclaimed Celtic teacher from Edinburgh, is the celebrated author of Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality.  He is the founder of the School of Celtic Consciousness and one of the most prominent Christian teachers of spirituality in the Western world.  He has authored over 15 books, including Christ of the Celts, Praying with the Earth, A New Harmony, and his most recent visionary title The Rebirthing of God:  Christianity's Struggle for New

Please note: this is a 4 day program (unlike our usual Walking A Sacred Path 5 day programs).

We begin on Monday at 4:00 pm with orientation, introductions, and a reception.  Each morning Tuesday - Thursday, we begin with a morning seminar with our guest faculty followed by a small group session.  Tuesday evening will be a special tour of the crypt and cathedral as though you were a 12th century pilgrimage.  Wednesday afternoon, Lauren Artress will present on the labyrinth and prepare us for our evening labyrinth walk.  In meditative silence, we will walk through the Cathedral crypt moving up to the candlelit labyrinth for a labyrinth walk with medieval music.  Thursday we end the program with a reception and celebratory dinner. 

This is a once in a lifetime experience that participants are drawn to repeat.  Join us in this ancient place of refuge and renewal so needed in our times.

Safety Concerns?

As you probably know, the U.S. government is continuing its Worldwide Caution with respect to foreign travel in general. France is not specifically mentioned in the latest update. On a separate website, the U.S. embassy in France notes that the French government is continuing its reinforced security measures. The State Department provides a program for concerned travelers to receive security messages and make it easier to locate you in an emergency: see Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
