Special Event

Featuring John Phillip Newell, celebrated author and renowned Christian teacher of spirituality

John Phillip Newall

'Thou: Seeking The Sacred At The Heart Of One Another'


Using the insights of the great Jewish teacher Martin Buber, John Philip Newell will present a spirituality of relationship based on the practice of seeking the sacred at the heart of all things, including the sacredness within those who seem most different from us.


John Philip Newell, 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 now divides his time between Edinburgh, where he does most of his writing, and travelling and teaching internationally. In 2015 he became the Distinguished Visiting Scholar of Spirituality at Iliff School of Theology in Denver where he offers a course every Spring. And in 2016 he founded the School of Celtic Consciousness to deepen the vision and practice of Celtic Spirituality as a sacred resource for healing in the world today.

 Embracing Oneness... Renewing our Contemplative Life

"Forsake every thing that is yours. Undertake this, and let it cost you everything you can afford. There you will find true peace, and nowhere else." ~Meister



The contemplative journey is the ever increasing appreciation of who God is and also knowing that God is unknowable. Borrowing from the Psalms (Nan Merrill translation), scripture, chant and Sacred poetry, we will explore the Spirit of Oneness as it forms our contemplative life.

Journeying together we will explore how we can nod to consent. Bow to surrender. Release to receptivity and be blessed into effortlessness.

Susan Rush has been active in Contemplative Outreach for almost three decades. With a forty year career in non-profit health care, Susan has experience in various settings with faith communities, patients, staff and governing boards.

Her recent service in the world carries a strong spiritual care aspect. Her clinical pastoral education, certification through Shalem Institute, and Formation for Contemplative Service assist her in supporting others through spiritual inquiry. As spiritual director and retreat facilitator she enjoys companioning others in their search for the Holy.
