Spiritual Deepening Program eRetreats and Online Offerings invite newcomers and Friends to build an online spiritual community through an exploration of Quaker thought and practice.

Spiritual growth is linked to community, and a Spiritual Deepening offering connects you with other curious seekers in an online exploration of Quaker thought, a deepening of your own spiritual practices, and the sharing of stories from your life and your personal journeys. Each eRetreat, worship sharing group, or book discussion is facilitated by deeply grounded Quakers.

Reading about [other participants’] experiences and ideas was an awe-some experience in itself for me. I truly appreciate the community who succeeded in going deeper individually and with each other. It is a rare opportunity for Friends to join together in this way.
