Contemplation and action

Led by Sheila Keane and Drew Thomas

This 6-day course is for those drawn to contemplative and faith-led ministries, or who are actively seeking to discern their own calling in life and is open to non-Quakers as well as Friends.

The course will guide participants through a process of letting go, entering deeply into prayer, becoming attentive to leadings, and forming strategies to live into the Light they have been given. It will include formal teaching, group and individual reflection, quiet contemplation, and support with the discernment process.

Course fee: $896 (single), $826 (twin/double) including all food, accommodation and tuition. Register here
