JHYM Retreat

Whatever Lifts up Your Heart is a Prayer


Friday, April 27, 2018 - 5:00pm to Sunday, April 29, 2018 - 12:30pm


Friends Meetinghouse
225 East Grand Ave
New Haven , CT


I so love this quote, by Brother David Steindl-Rast.  (Look him up if you want to be truly inspired.)   What is prayer?  More than definitions, we’ll share our personal experiences and try out some guided techniques that others have found to work—from drawing to walking to doing guided meditations. This being our last retreat of the year, we’ll also be honoring and celebrating the 8th graders as we begin to anticipate them moving up to Young Friends in the fall. This will be the first time JHYM has been at New Haven Meeting in many, many years—don’t miss it! Registration begins March 4.
