2020 Retreat: Spiritual Companions within an Ecology of Quaker Practice

Each year LEYM hosts a Spiritual Formation Retreat. This year, the theme is Spiritual Companions within an Ecology of Quaker Practice, with leadership from Cassie Cammann, Nadine Hoover and Mark Hoover. Given the continued restrictions of the pandemic, the Fall 2020 retreat will be virtual, with recognition of the limitations of online connection and sensitivity for everyone’s physical and mental health. The dates for the event are as follows:

  • Friday, Sept. 11: 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, Sept. 12: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, Sept. 13: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

The format will blend writing, drawing, talking, moving, viewing short videos, and more. We will work individually, in small groups, and as a whole.

In our time together, we will develop key practices for spiritual companion groups and consider their role in living our faith. We will engage in activities to help us open ourselves, work together, and experiment with Spirit in our lives. We will reflect on how the recording of spiritual insights bridges the still small voice within to the faith and practice of community. Drawing on both historical and present-day writings, we will explore how an ecology of Quaker practice is the essence of collective spiritual life.

More information and a registration form is available here.
