Young Adult Friends Spring Retreat

Spiritual Practices for our Daily Lives

Friends Meetinghouse
26 Benvenue St.
Wellesley , MA


A Young Adult Friends (YAF) Retreat is a time for young adults to build community, explore and deepen our spiritual lives, eat good food, and have a slumber party at a Quaker meetinghouse. You don't have to be Quaker. 

Each YAF Retreat has a theme. This retreat theme is "Spiritual Practices for our Daily Lives." Some more about this theme:

How many of us use spiritual practices on a regular basis? How many folks would like to? Perhaps you read poetry and feel a Presence; maybe you meditate in the mornings; maybe you chant, sing, read Scripture, or something else! Maybe you attend meeting for worship or another service sometimes; perhaps you have other practices that support your grounding. Maybe you do none of the above and / but are curious! We will have an opportunity to "try on" spiritual practices that can be used in everyday life.

Cost is $0-80, sliding scale / "pay-as-led" (and able). 

To register, click here. The retreat is in Wellesley, MA at the Wellesley Friends Meeting.
