In 2016, John Philip Newell founded the School of Celtic Consciousness. He did so in the belief that Celtic wisdom is needed at this moment in time, urgently. It is a spiritual tradition in the Christian household that can nurture vision of mind, strength of soul, and compassion of action.

This is the first annual gathering of the School of Celtic Consciousness at San Damiano Retreat Center in Danville, CA, USA. The theme for the first year of the School curriculum is ‘In the Beginning Was the Gift’. John Philip will teach on Pelagius, St. Brigid, and Teilhard de Chardin.

Required reading for this offering of the School is Listening for the Heartbeat of God by John Philip Newell. The recommended prayer book for the School is Sounds of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter  by John Philip Newell.
