A Friendly Introduction to the Quaker Way
3 in stock
Are you relatively new to Quakers and keen to find out more? This course sets out the Quaker ‘basics’. It will give you an understanding of the history and international reach of Quakerism, and the importance of spiritual experience to the Quaker Way. We will discuss what happens in a Meeting for Worship and how Quakers make decisions and organise themselves. We will explore what Quakers mean by ‘testimony’ and explain simple spiritual practices for you to experiment with. Each unit contains video, audio and written materials to engage with, and forums to share reflections and ask questions. There will be a live online Q&A on Thursday 21 February at 19.00 GMT. If you can’t join this discussion live, it will be recorded for you to watch at your convenience. This course is intended for those who have been attending a Quaker meeting for between six months and three years. This course focuses principally on Quakerism as practiced by Britain Yearly Meeting, what is known as the liberal unprogrammed tradition. Participants from other Yearly Meetings and traditions are very welcome.
This course involves a time commitment of approximately 2-3 hours per week.
