Spiritual Deepening eRetreats: A Quaker Way of Living with Dying eRetreat

October 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

The A Quaker Way of Living with Dying eRetreat invites you to explore and practice the spirituality of death. Growing old, even when that means facing physical or other changes, can help us focus on what is essential.  This eRetreat was previous offered with the title Aging, Death, and Dying.
