Silence & Light for Quaker Newcomers

an eRetreat from Friends General Conference
December 2, 2023 - January 6, 2024


The Silence & Light 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 session is offered for people who are curious about Quakers or new to Quakerism and will explore the basics of Quaker theology and practice.

Each week, the facilitators will lead Community Building Calls using Zoom. During these calls, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the eRetreat content, worship together, do additional eRetreat exercises, and build connections with each other.

The Silence & Light for Quaker Newcomers eRetreat will be facilitated by Michael Levi. A member of Adelphi Friends Meeting in Maryland, Michael has taught “An Introduction to Quakerism” for many years.
