The School of Earth and Soul


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 the John Philip Newell for this retreat! Onsite and commuter options will be available.

Wholeness & Wellness Weekend

September 16-18, 2022

Refresh your spirit with time to connect to nature, your body, and your deep self. Storytelling, yoga, mindfulness, hiking, nutrition, creative expression, connection to nature, and even massage 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. Wholeness & Wellness Weekend will engage a de-colonizing potluck approach, meaning that the experience is richer when everyone has something to bring.
