Event Time: 1:00 PM - to 5:00 PM

Using geographic maps as a framing metaphor, this workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to reflect on their personal experience of the Divine and the spiritual guides that inspire them. (See this Friends Journal article for more context: Maps and Spirit by Michael D. Levi, Dec 2021)
The two big questions upon which participants will be asked to reflect are:
- What does the direct experience of God feel like? What enables or encourages that experience?
- What are the spiritual guides that are meaningful to you? How do they guide or change your experience?
Most of the retreat time will be spent in individual contemplation and small group sharing. Everyone is welcome, but the retreat will be particularly meaningful for groups who worship together on a regular basis.
- This workshop will take place over two Zoom calls on Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18
- Workshop Times: 1pm-5pm Eastern / 12pm-4pm Central / 11am-3pm Mountain / 10am-2pm Pacific
- There will be a one hour break each day.
- $45 pay-as-led** participation fee
