This year-end retreat at Quaker Center will explore a few of the many ways in which we record and share our spiritual journeys, including through story, memoir and art. Several program leaders and participant facilitators will offer interactive workshops guiding those present through some of these methods. We’ll also practice daily worship sharing in which we’re able to share our ongoing spiritual paths with one another in a small-group, worshipful setting. This will be a lightly programmed and unique year-end retreat.

As always, we’ll also spend time in fellowship, contemplation, and celebration, as we welcome in the new year together here under the redwoods. All are welcome. 

As many of you know, one of our scheduled program leaders, Judith Wright Favor, passed away last December. About this retreat, Judith wrote: “With hearts, minds, bodies and souls attuned to the Source of Love, we will write and speak from rich silence.” We intend to do just this, and trust that Friend Judith’s spirit will accompany us as we gather. Fortunately her co-presenter, Don McCormick of Grass Valley Friends Meeting, will be part of the retreat and will lead a two-session workshop on writing spiritual memoir.

Ann Marie Snell, of San Francisco Friends Meeting, will serve as a convener to help lead us through the retreat, as well as offer a workshop on Nature Journaling as a Spiritual Practice. Other workshop and activity leaders to be announced.
