Quakers in Pastoral Care and Counseling members are Quaker (mostly) chaplains, counseling professionals and pastors. Quaker life and counseling practice has always included elements of mindfulness, and we find there is always more to learn.

With this in mind, we invite you to come to the next QPCC conference/retreat. The QPCC conference is not just another professional convention. Rather, it is a time for refreshment and connection in a supportive and loving community.

Leader:  Valerie Brown, JD, MA, PCC—a Friend, international retreat leader, spiritual director, author, accredited leadership coach, and Center for Courage and Renewal facilitator. She has written numerous books on mindfulness and Quaker leadership, and also Pendle Hill pamphlets including The Mindful Quaker. She studied mindfulness in the Plum Village tradition and was ordained in the Order of Interbeing by Thich Nhat Hanh in 2003.

Registration is open now. Check the QPCC website for more details.
