Fall Workshops at Ben Lomond Quaker Center

This fall there are some great workshops at Quaker Center:

Silent Retreat
November 5-7 with Robin and Terrill Keeler

"A weekend for silence, reflection, and renewal, facilitated by a skilled and compassionate Quaker couple who have developed their own daily spiritual discipline over many years."

[I am seriously thinking about going to this. I need more time for reflection in my life. ]

Spiritual Exploration through Drama, Movement, and Improvisation
November 19-21 with Victoria Shaskan

"Finding new ways of exploring spiritual and religious beliefs, with the guidance of a skilled and experienced theater professional. For persons 14 and older. Young adults will find this program particularly stimulating, but persons of all ages are welcome. Families are encouraged to participate."

[Tory Shaskan is a young adult Friend. She grew up in San Francisco Meeting, but is now a member of Westminster Meeting, in London. She led a mini-version of this at our meeting retreat last year and people said it was really good.]

A Music and Dance Weekend
December 3-5 with Gretta & Jacob Stone will host, joined by many participant-leaders

"In response to many requests we are happy to repeat a joyful weekend of music and dance at Quaker Center. Participant-led, with singalongs, contra dance, a drum circle, English country dancing, Sacred Harp singing, instrumental jams, and anything else brought by the participants. A potluck supper on Saturday night too! A family-friendly program; kids welcome!"

[Gretta and Jacob are the co-directors of Quaker Center but they are leaving at the end of the year to move back to the East Coast. Come and see them in California while you can!]

December 27-January 1, 2011
Year-End Retreat
Farewell to the old year, welcome to the new!
[The leader and theme are still to be announced. Last year, it was Dan Seeger.]
