A new, ten-week series of Quaker Queries will be offered on Monday nights, 7 - 9 pm, starting September 24 and continuing through November 26. These sessions will follow the format originally developed by Friends in the Claremont, California Meeting. Those who have participated in previous series have reported that the experience was deeply enriching. During the series, we respond to questions specifically designed to increase self-awareness and build community. We seek to better understand ourselves and each other, especially in regard to our spiritual lives. Participants speak from their own experience, one at a time, in strictest confidence and without commentary, listening deeply to others without back-and-forth discussion. Rather than trying to resolve other people’s problems, we seek simply to observe and share experiences in an atmosphere of respect, holding open the space of possibility.
Those who wish to participate are encouraged to make a commitment to attend regularly through the series, but you are encouraged to attend even if you cannot be present every week. There is no required reading material.
If you are interested in attending or have any questions, please contact Kimberly Nelson at[email protected]or call her at 713/864-8262.
