Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice


Workshops offer Gathering adults and high school participants the opportunity to be immersed in a topic with other interested Friends. Friends stay in the same workshop throughout the week, forming a small community within the Gathering. Each workshop meets from 9:15 to 12:00 noon every weekday. Most workshops include daily worship or worship sharing.

Please note that workshop registrations are temporarily closed. You can read information on the website, and then choose a workshop when you check in at the Gathering.

Start a ripple of conversation in your relationship that radiates into communities in desperate need of love. As couples we use witnessed dialogues and other practices to say and hear what's most important. Experience deep connection and new understandings. Let your relationship grow and change in the Spirit of love.
