Using the insights of the great Jewish teacher Martin Buber, John Philip Newell will present a spirituality of relationship based on the practice of seeking the sacred at the heart of all things, including the sacredness within those who seem most different from us.

John Philip Newell, author of ‘Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality’, is one of the most prominent Christian teachers of spirituality in the Western world. Formerly Warden of Iona Abbey in the Western Isles of Scotland, he now divides his time between Edinburgh, where he does most of his writing, and travelling and teaching internationally. In 2015 he became the Distinguished Visiting Scholar of Spirituality at Iliff School of Theology in Denver where he offers a course every Spring. And in 2016 he founded the School of Celtic Consciousness to deepen the vision and practice of Celtic Spirituality as a sacred resource for healing in the world today.
