2011 SDCO Annual Spirituality Conference

Philip NewellSpeaker. John Philip Newell, a poet, scholar, and teacher, is internationally acclaimed for his work in the field of Celtic spirituality, with best-known titles Listening for the Heartbeat of God and Christ of the Celts. Formerly Warden of Iona Abbey in the Western Isles of Scotland, he is currently Companion Theologian for the American Spirituality Centre of Casa del Sol in the high desert of New Mexico. Although his family home is in Edinburgh, he plays a leading role on both sides of the Atlantic in the re-birthing of a creation spirituality for today.

Theme. Like never before in the history of humanity, we are aware of the essential unity of life and that what we do to a part we do to the whole. Wellness is found not in separation but in relationship, whether as nations and wisdom traditions or as individuals and as a whole earth community. How can our spirituality today, including our spiritual practices, be part of serving this new consciousness?

Program. The program will include three major presentations, time for silence, and opportunities for sharing and discussion.

  • Friday Evening - The Ancient Harmony
  • Saturday Morning - The Broken Harmony
  • Saturday Afternoon - The New Harmony

Brad Berglund, well-known contemplative and Celtic musician, is the conference musician and liturgist.
