Publisher's Summary

A leading spiritual teacher reveals how Celtic spirituality - listening to the sacred around us and inside of us - can help us heal the earth, overcome our conflicts, and reconnect with ourselves.

John Philip Newell shares the long, hidden tradition of Celtic Christianity, explaining how this earth-based spirituality can help us rediscover the natural rhythms of life and deepen our spiritual connection with God, with each other, and with the earth. Newell introduces some of Celtic Christianity’s leading practitioners, both saints and pioneers of faith, whose timeless wisdom is more necessary than ever, including:  

  • Pelagius, who shows us how to look beyond sin to affirm our sacredness as part of all God’s creation, and courageously stand up for our principles in the face of oppression.
  • Brigid of Kildare, who illuminates the interrelationship of all things and reminds us of the power of the sacred feminine to overcome those seeking to control us.
  • John Muir, who encourages us to see the holiness and beauty of wilderness and what we must do to protect these gifts.
  • Teilhard de Chardin, who inspires us to see how science, faith, and our future tell one universal story that begins with sacredness.

By embracing the wisdom of Celtic Christianity, we can learn how to listen to the sacred and see the divine in all of creation and within each of us. Human beings are inherently spiritual creatures who intuitively see the sacred in nature and within one another, but our cultures - and at times even our faiths - have made us forget what each of us already know deep in our souls but have learned to suppress. Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul offers a new spiritual foundation for our lives, once centered on encouragement, guidance, and hope for creating a better world.

Spiritually wonderful

The only issue I had was the push of socialism. I was all in until the end of chapter five. I would listen again despite the socialist push tho.

Loved this so much!

A beautiful writing to merge our spirituality with Nature. Provoked some deep thoughts to reflect on, interesting history recounting and the narrator was pleasant to listen to with his lovely Scottish accent and engaging way of speaking.

A New World Awaits Everyone Of Us

John Philip Newell encourages us to open the door to the profound silence and beauty of the world we inherited at birth and recognized the moment we opened our eyes. We had no way to sing "Joy to the World!" but everyone in the room felt the profound joy each of us came to teach. Now we have the tools to share the gift the world so sorely needs to survive.
