One of the most cherished images in the early Celtic Christian world is the memory of John the Beloved leaning against Jesus at the last supper. It was said of him that he thus heard the heartbeat of God. He became a symbol of the practice of listening, listening for the beat of the Sacred deep within ourselves, within one another, and within the body of the earth. This spiritual tradition has many resonances with Native American spirituality and the wisdom of indigenous peoples throughout the world.
In our signature week at Ghost Ranch, we will honor this wisdom through Native ceremony and look to the treasure of Celtic spirituality as a rich resource for transformation in our lives and world today. Our days will consist of prayer at the rising of the sun in Ghost Ranch’s Agape Center courtyard, teaching and sharing in the mornings and evenings, and rest and silence in the afternoons. The program will be led by John Philip and Ali Newell who this year will be deepening and expanding their Celtic teachings, along with the musical talent of David and Winona Poole and the Navajo wisdom of Alta Begay-Piechowski and Terrell Piechowski. They are all good friends of Ghost Ranch and have worked together creatively in the past through word and song and ceremony.
