Celtic Spirituality: videos from John Philip Newell

John Philip Newell blessed many at Saint Paul’s with a weekend visit a few years ago. He is one of the preeminent teachers of Celtic spirituality and a dear friend – I commend the videos presented below with enthusiasm and gratitude. For those who might be inspired to go further into John Philip’s teaching, peruse the website for the Ghost Ranch Retreat Center in Abiquiu, New Mexico – John Philip spends several weeks there every year, offering summer retreats at Casa del Sol.

Scott Richardson Update There will be another forum on January 29 called Celtic Spirituality, Part 2: Reflections from John Philip Newell.

Dean Scott Richardson will lead a discussion based on four video vignettes and additional writings by Celtic Spirituality Scholar, The Rev. Dr. John Philip Newell. Dr. Newell served as Warden of Iona Abby and Warden for Spirituality for the Anglican Diocese of Portsmouth. He has written extensively on Celtic Spirituality as well as led pilgrimages and workshops throughout the world.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the postings from The Rev. Scott Richardson, Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral in San Diego; however this one spoke to me the most. This is what I find in the practice of Centering Prayer.
Thank you!
