February 7 - 9 - SEED TIME: A Contemplative Retreat in the Manner of Friends
The Retreat House of Holy Cross Abbey (Berryville, VA)
Participants will experience the distinctly Quaker way of knowing solitude in community. We will go deep together in expectant waiting, attending to the divine stirrings within, ready to open to Grace. There will be individual time for prayer, reflection, rest, and walks. Meals will be taken in silence, and you’ll be welcome to read, journal, do handwork or artwork, or engage in similar quiet activity in the common spaces. There will also be opportunities to share in small reflection groups, as well as an invitation to meeting with a retreat leader if you wish. Anyone who would like to hear the monks chant the Psalms will be welcome in the Abbey chapel during Divine Office. The Retreat House is a modern structure, and its rooms are simple but comfortable – single occupancy, each with its own bathroom. Leaders Rita Willett and Catherine Cox are both graduates of the School of the Spirit Ministry’s program On Being a Spiritual Nurturer, and Rita was a teacher in that program. She holds a degree from Earlham School of Religion and has been a student in Shalem’s Nurturing the Call: Spiritual Guidance Program. Catherine is a graduate of Shalem’s Transforming Community: Leading Contemplative Prayer Groups and Retreats Program. The full cost is $280, minimum fee is $200.
February 14 – 16 – Washington Friends Conference on Religion and Psychology
Claggett Center (Adamstown, MD)
We are delighted to announce that Lisa Marchiano, LCSW and Jungian Analyst will be our speaker for WFCRP this year! We know Lisa because she is one of the conveners for the Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts (PAJA) Seminar. (This seminar provides advanced study and discussion of Jungian concepts and is the first step in the process for Analyst Training.) Lisa is a mythologist and is a recognized authority on fairy tales. She is a fun and dynamic speaker and will provide an interactive environment in which we can investigate the Negative Father Complex. This may be our personal complex, but it also may be a complex in our culture. So we will examine it from all angles. How timely!
