The Silence & Light for Young Adult Friends 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 eRetreat is held under the care of the Adult Young Friends Program of the Friends General Conference Gathering.  It is offered as an opportunity to bring together Quakers and seekers in the age range of 18-35ish for spiritual community and mutual support. 
 
The content of the online materials and the weekly video calls reflect Quaker faith and practice, and all who self-identify as young adults and "Quaker-oriented" are welcome to participate, regardless of affiliation with a Quaker meeting or community.  All participants are encouraged to commit to the process of building an experimental spiritual community online.

"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."
