Upcoming Workshops at Quaker Center

Full disclosure: I'm on the board of the Ben Lomond Quaker Center Association, a small retreat and camping center under the care of College Park Quarterly Meeting. Ben Lomond is a small town in the redwood forest in the coastal mountains above Santa Cruz, California. USA, not Scotland.

This weekend Quaker Center is hosting a very full workshop on clerking in the manner of Friends led by Joe Franko (current clerk of PYM) and Shan Cretin (former clerk of PYM). So I'm sorry I didn't write about that sooner, but not too sorry, because it is overbooked anyway. But as a board member, it's part of my responsibility to spread the word about the varied programs that they offer.

Here are the next three weekend programs that may be of interest to readers of this blog:
Feb 29-Mar 2 Opening Hearts and Minds: Speaking Truth to Power
led by Bonnie Tinker and Rev. Cecil Charles Prescod
Using words as nonviolent direct action when listening is required but is not enough.

Mar 28-30 Interfaith Peacemaking
led by Anthony Manousos, Alan Solomonow, and Saafa Ibrahim
Building bridges of understanding, deepening spiritual connection, cooperating for peace and justice.

April 11-13 Redwood Rainforest Ecology & Metaphor
led by David Forbes and Margaret Willits
Finding the Divine among the redwoods.

Financial assistance is available if you need it. If you would like to attend any of these, please contact Quaker Center directly. If you have general questions or comments, I will try to answer them here. Quaker Center also runs camps for Quaker youth and offers space for personal retreats. I recommend them highly.
