WORKSHOPS

Through our ministry, we explore many themes that affect spiritual renewal. We are able to offer workshops to Quaker groups on the following topics:
 

  • Eldership
    What it is, how it works, why we need it

     

  • The Listening Project
    What we learned through 18 months of listening, and how your community can benefit from it

     

  • Spiritual Nourishment for Friends under 55
    How to create retreats, workshops, and spiritual deepening programs that are likely to appeal to younger Friends


We are also open to presenting on a topic of your choice.

About us
Johanna brings 13 years of experience as a dialogue facilitator. This includes facilitator work through the University of Michigan, The Pennsylvania State University, and Shaver's Creek Environmental Center. JT brings an anchored, grounding presence. His work is often to balance the subtle energies in the room and to cover the gathering in prayer. We work together as an elder-minister pair.

We have held workshops in-person and remotely with the Ann Arbor Friends Meeting, the State College Friends Meeting, the Upper Susquehanna Quarter, and at Ben Lomond Quaker Center.
