Young Friends Retreat

Spring Young Friends Retreat--Community


Friday, April 26, 2019 - 7:00pm to Sunday, April 28, 2019 - 12:00pm


Friends Meetinghouse
26 Benvenue St.
Wellesley , MA


Year after year, the message we hear coming out of the Young Friends community is that of unconditional love and care. Turns out the thing that keeps Young Friends coming back again and again isn't games or GORP, but the connections made with others in community. And a question left burning when we leave retreats is often "why don't I feel this way in other spaces in my life, and how do I change that?" 

At our upcoming retreat, we will explore the theme "Community" by doing. We'll affirm and deepen the relationships within this community, and get to know each other intentionally to build new relationships. We'll draw out each other's gifts and celebrate them- get ready to share what lights your fire, whether it's singing, drawing, or baking! We'll practice how to build relationships that nourish our spirits, in this community and out in our lives. Really this retreat is about LOVE and all the forms it takes, and empowering each other to both show and receive love everywhere we go.

I hope you will consider joining us at Wellesley Meeting April 26-28 for this retreat. You can read more details here.  Ready to say “Yes”? Register here. Registration closes April 19th. Let's do this!
