Are you relatively new to Quakers and keen to find out more? Have you been attending meeting for a while, but feel you could be better informed about Quaker beliefs and practices? Are you a life-long Friend who needs their Quaker knowledge refreshed? 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.
This course will give you a solid foundation in continuing your journey on the Quaker way.
Each week there will be video, audio and written materials to engage with, and forums to share reflections and ask questions.
There will be the opportunity for live online discussion (19.00-20.00 GMT) on Tuesday 10th November and Tuesday 8th December. If you can’t join this discussion live, it will be recorded for you to watch at your convenience. This course involves a time commitment of approximately two to three hours per week.
