The SFIC reserves the right to reject requests-to-post from organizations and individuals other than the SFIC's San Francisco faith-based constituents and those events whose themes are unrelated to the religious life of our community.

Celtic Spirituality celebrates the essential sacredness of all things. It remembers John the Beloved as leaning against Jesus at the Last Supper. It was said of him in the Celtic world that the therefore heard the heartbeat of God. He became a symbol of the practice of listening. We will explore this practice together and the implications of listening for the Sacred within ourselves and all people, and within the Earth and all its species.

Reception and book signing to follow.
