A NEW HARMONY - THE SPIRIT, THE EARTH AND THE HUMAN SOUL
 
PHILIP NEWELL  -  4th & 5th October 2017
One of the most cherished images in the Celtic Christian world is the memory of John the Beloved leaning against Jesus at the Last Supper. It was said of him that he therefore heard the heartbeat of God. He becomes an image of the practice of listening for the beat of the Sacred deep within ourselves and one another, and deep within the body of the Earth. It is an image that can feed our holy imagination in the unfolding of fresh spiritual vision and practice for today.
