What does it look like to be authentic when I’m still discovering who “me” is? 

Self-discovery and self-acceptance are life-long journeys. This retreat is about cultivating practices that help us explore who we are and feel comfortable with the question marks we encounter. 

For years, Young Friends have had an annual retreat with a theme that focuses on sexuality and gender. This year, the full title Young Friends came up with for the retreat on this topic is "Normal is just a setting on the dryer: Identity & Defining who we are."  There will be time to ask questions, unpack words and definitions, share experiences, and most importantly celebrate the beloved, unique people we each are.
