What Canst Thou Say: Spiritual Inquiry Grounded in Worship Sharing


The Building a Meaningful Life eRetreat invites you to explore and practice the spirituality of meaning-making, resiliency, renewal, and life transitions. Rather than focusing on death and dying, this eRetreat explores the spiritual gifts of aging across the lifespan.

The Aging, Death, and Dying eRetreat invites you to explore and practice the spirituality of death. Growing old, even when that means facing physical or other changes, can help us focus on what is essential.

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
