John Philip Newell founded the School of Earth and Soul. He did so in the belief that Celtic wisdom is needed at this moment in time, urgently. It is a spiritual tradition in the Christian household that can nurture vision of mind, strength of soul, and compassion of action. La Foret is pleased to welcome John Philip Newell for this retreat! Onsite and commuter options will be available.

Refresh your spirit with time to connect to nature, your body, and your deep self. Storytelling, movement, mindfulness, creative expression, and even massage and spiritual direction will all be options in this retreat designed for your refreshment and re-centering. 


Open to everyone; this is an intentionally diverse, spirit-centered event, and we aim to engage people of every background and path. W&W Weekend will feature a potluck approach, where many hosts lead one session, with options to choose from. Our popular Wellness & Arts Market will also be back! Childcare is available during sessions by request ahead of time.

Registration for Saturday only, days only, or on-site stays are available to make this event accessible to as many people as possible.
