Spiritual Formation 2020
FALL SPIRITUAL FORMATION RETREAT
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 - SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2020
How can I see "goodness"? Where is the "land of the living"? Am I there? Or have I allowed myself to be overtaken by worry amidst uncertainty, confusion amidst perplexity, and despair amidst suffering? The prophets and mystics of the world's wisdom traditions would recognize the times in which we are living - they lived them too. But they knew the pathways of returning, rest, quietness, and trust. Perhaps these are our way back to the land of the living?
Join with Friends across Baltimore Yearly Meeting for a weekend retreat that offers time for reflection and renewal, quiet and spiritual friendship, chanting and celebration. We'll gather via Zoom for times of whole group listening, small group sharing, and encountering wisdom in and with one another.
We'll gather as a whole group on Friday evening from 6:30 - 8:30; on Saturday morning, we'll have some guided reflections to prepare us for a gathering from 1:00 - 3:00 in the afternoon. An optional session on Saturday from 4:00 - 5:00PM will provide a Q&A session for Friends planning to begin or renew a local Spiritual Formation Group. The retreat will close with a final whole-group gathering Saturday evening from 7:00 -9:00PM.
Registration is now closed.
