Event Description

The ‘A Quaker Way of Living with Dying’ eRetreat honors the spirituality of death while celebrating the richness of growing old. Through contemplation and community, we uncover the wisdom inherent in life’s transitions, guiding us to embrace each moment with clarity and purpose. Join us as we navigate this transformative journey, cultivating resilience and deepening our connection to the essence of existence.

Attending the ‘A Quaker Way of Living with Dying’ eRetreat was a deeply spiritual experience. Surrounded by a supportive community, I gained profound insights into the spiritual essence of death and aging. It helped me embrace each moment with renewed clarity and purpose, deepening my connection to existence.
