Course Details

Many Quakers today are drawn to the clarity of guidance on mindfulness in the Buddhist tradition. Buddhists are often interested in the distinctive combination of Quaker silence and social action. These complementary interests have been nurtured by the regular retreats at Woodbrooke over the past twenty years. In this online retreat we will continue this exploration, with opportunities throughout the weekend to join together for mindful sitting and walking meditation, meeting for worship, talks, sharing groups and deep relaxation. For those who have been on Mindfully Together retreats or Being Peace weekends, this will be a valuable chance to reconnect, and for rest and renewal.  For those who are new to Buddhism or Quakerism, explanations and support will be given. The programme will include an option to join with others online for an early morning period of sitting meditation each day.

Timothy Ashworth draws on biblical study, retreat work and interfaith dialogue to illuminate the nature of spiritual transformation.

Lesley Collington is a potter, teaches T’ai Chi Chuan & Qi Gong, a Dharma Teacher in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.
