Beyond the Pandemic: How Shall We Live?

John Philip Newell

Internationally acclaimed Celtic teacher John Philip Newell will lead a one-hour livestreamed session on accessing wisdom in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. In particular, how shall we choose to live after the pandemic? Dr. Newell will draw on teachers of the past, asking, “If they were with us now, what might they say to us?”

The presentation will be followed by a shared online meditation as well as the opportunity to submit questions and comments to the moderator of our livestream gathering, some of which John Philip will be able to respond to during the one-hour session.

This webinar is hosted by Hartford Seminary in collaboration with Mercy By The Sea and the New England School of Celtic Consciousness.

Registration, limited to 500, is $25 per person. There is an option to add $5 for the Connecticut Food Bank as well. The link for the Zoom webinar will be sent to registrants before the event.

About John Philip Newell

John Philip Newell, the celebrated author of Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality, is one of the most prominent Christian teachers of spirituality in the Western world.

Formerly Warden of Iona Abbey in the Western Isles of Scotland, he divides his time between Edinburgh, where he does most of his writing, and teaching in the United States and Canada, as well as leading international pilgrimage weeks on Iona.

In 2016 John Philip founded the School of Celtic Consciousness (SCC) in the belief that we need to access our Celtic Christian inheritance for this moment in time, urgently.

John Philip’s much anticipated forthcoming publication is Sacred: Reawakening to Earth & Soul (with Celtic Prophets from St Brigid to John Muir). It will be published in 2021 by Harper One.
