Eldering: Shepherding Alignment with the Spirit


Saturday, October 26, 2019 - 10:00am to 4:00pm


173 N. Prospect St.
Burlington , VT


This day-long, interactive workshop—presented by Susan Davies (Vassalboro, ME, Friends Meeting) and Kathleen Wooten (Fresh Pond, MA, Friends Meeting)—will examine the practice of eldering as exercised in different settings and circumstances. The afternoon session will be devoted to small group and full group engagement with various scenarios where skillful eldering might turn a “problem” into an opportunity to build up and strengthen the Beloved Community. 

Burlington Friends will provide a simple lunch and can offer some overnight hospitality to those traveling from a distance.

There is no charge to attend, but please register so that we might plan for the event. If you would like to attend this workshop, please send a message with your name and meeting affiliation to:  [email protected]
