Dwelling Deep, a Contemplative Retreat


Friday, January 12, 2018 (All day) to Monday, January 15, 2018 (All day)


524 Pitt Hall Road
Old Chatham , NY
New York


During this extended weekend, Friends are invited to enter more fully into the silence and experience the deeper rhythms in which we might live. This retreat will include the opportunity for solitude, individual and corporate worship, silent meals, and "active" silence. There will also be opportunities for individual and group spiritual reflection. Come and simply BE with God; listen and attend to the Divine stirrings of the soul.

Linda Chidsey is a member of Housatonic Meeting and a recorded minister in New York Yearly Meeting. She carries a concern for spiritual nurture and pastoral care. Linda has served as clerk of NYYM and on the School of the Spirit board.

Carolyn Moon is a member of Gwynedd Friends Meeting in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. She serves on the Pastoral Care as well as the Worship and Ministry Committees of her monthly meeting. Carolyn has retired from her service on the School of the Spirit board after many years.

The retreat is co-sponsored by the School of the Spirit Ministry.
