Join in this weekend retreat with the acclaimed spiritual teacher John Philip Newell at Ghost Ranch in the high desert of New Mexico.

Religion is at the heart of some of the most conflicted places of hatred and violence in the world. Loving one another across faiths is essential to the way of peace. The great spiritual traditions of humanity are given to complete one another, not to compete with one another. They each hold unique treasure, to be honored distinctly, and in true relationship, they are even stronger and deeper. This is the way of love. Our weekend retreat will celebrate the wisdom of prophetic teachers from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The time together will consist of prayer at the rising and setting of the sun in the courtyard of the traditional hacienda and retreat center, Casa del Sol, and sessions in the Agape Center worship space on the main ranch. There will be teaching and spiritual practice in the mornings and evenings, and in the afternoon there will be rest and opportunity for hiking. Our meals will be taken together in the Dining Hall on the main campus of the Ranch. The program will be co-led, John Philip Newell, the renowned Celtic author from Scotland, offering teachings, and Cami Twilling, the Director of Contemplative Spirituality from Trinity United Methodist Church in Denver, facilitating our spiritual practice. The common life will combine times of silence and times of sharing in conversation.

The retreat begins with the evening meal on Friday and ends with lunch on Sunday.
