Please select another Ghost Ranch offering.

A midweek retreat with the acclaimed spiritual teacher John Philip Newell in the intimacy of Casa del Sol at Ghost Ranch in the high desert of New Mexico. One of the most cherished images in the Celtic 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 became a symbol of the practice of listening, listening for the beat of the Sacred deep within ourselves, within one another, and within the body of the earth.

This will be the focus of our retreat, co-led by John Philip Newell, offering teachings, and Cami Twilling, facilitating our spiritual practices. The retreat begins with the evening meal on Tuesday and ends with lunch on Thursday.
