Event Description

The Silence & Light for Quaker Newcomers eRetreat invites you to explore and practice the experience of Quaker worship and silent waiting, for an inward encounter with Inner Teacher who leads, guides, and transforms us every day. This session is offered for people who are curious about Quakers or new to Quakerism and will explore the basics of Quaker theology and practice.

“This eRetreat has been a gentle reminder to ‘wait to feel the Spirit’ and listen more closely for it….This was a perfect combination of a mini retreat, communal sharing and learning experience.” – Spiritual Deepening eRetreat participant
