Course Details

The writings of early Quaker women are filled with imagery that engages our senses as well as our spirits. Their letters and journals reveal and embody how God was working in and through them. Grounded in worship and using a variety of methods, we will explore these lesser known gems of Friends’ history and use them to reflect on and enhance our own spiritual experience. This retreat will speak to those who enjoy contemplative, reflective practices. We will engage in worship, individual and group reflection, writing and sharing. “Lecture” will be at a minimum – instead we will be deeply experiencing these texts.

Deborah Shaw is a life-long Friend and seasoned retreat leader who delights in spiritual exploration in the company of others.

Wendy Hampton has been a Quaker for over 20 years carrying out a variety of roles locally and nationally.
