172. John Philip Newell – Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul: Celtic Wisdom for Reawakening to What our Souls Know and Healing the World

John Philip Newell is a Celtic teacher and author of spirituality, who calls the modern world to reawaken to the sacredness of the Earth and every human being. John Philip’s most recent book is called “Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul: Celtic Wisdom for Reawakening to What Our Souls Know and Healing the World.” John Philip began the School of Earth and Soul, which was originally called the School of Celtic Consciousness. Reading John Philip’s book and talking to him today has inspired me in so many ways. John Philip’s writing and his teaching offers the possibility of leaving others living and being and relating in new ways that are healthy, that are sustainable, and that are fulfilling. It’s a big promise, and it’s not a simple algorithm, but there is inspiration.

In this interview on the School for Good Living podcast, John joins Brilliant to discuss Celtic spirituality and the divinity that can be found in all things. John provides lots of insight on understanding the sacredness of the Earth and the people around us. Throughout this discussion, John also provides a lot of insight on how this knowledge can be a key to good living and how these perspectives open us to new possibilities of healing and overcoming the difficulties this world has to offer.

“The crises that we are in the midst of today stem from the fact that we treat the Earth and one another as less than sacred.”
