This retreat will help you have a personal encounter with the Divine that lights the path of your life and animates your life in community. Experiment with the Light is a Quaker spiritual practice that draws upon Quaker prayer and sacred listening to help you move into an encounter with the Divine. We’ll create a shared, safe space where we listen to one another and honor all experiences. This simple yet effective meditation creates connection with Spirit and then with others.
Experiment with Light is a contemplative spiritual practice, welcoming to people of all faith backgrounds. It is very personal, intended to help you dig deep into the concerns of your life, and there in the dark discover the light that illuminates the truth of your life and your path forward. This simple tool can bring profound change and inner peace into your life.
In this retreat, you’ll be given a spacious opportunity to:
- Experiment with new ways of being in relationship with Light
- Experience a four-step meditation that develops a personal and communal experience of Spirit
- Nourish and deepen your spiritual life within the trust and unconditional support of a group
- A 21st century process and encounter with the Divine
What to Expect
The retreat will be primarily experiential with a combination of individual, small, and large group reflection, as well as actual practice of the Experiment with Light guided meditation. You’ll receive written materials that reflect the substance of the presentations. As the retreat concludes, you’ll be given a personal plan for continued engagement with this practice.
