‘Experiment with Light’ is a method for actively engaging with the silent worship practised in Quaker Meetings, inspired by early Friends’ experiences, as illustrated by their writings.
It was originally devised by the British Quaker Rex Ambler and has since been continued and developed in various Quaker study centres and Quaker Meetings.
The workshop provides an introduction to this practice, as interpreted by our two facilitators, John Spencer and Medhina .
The weekend will start with an evening meal on Friday at 18.00 and will end after lunch on Sunday at about 14.00.
Cost: €110 (£95) per person for meals and accommodation, or €50 (£40) for meals only. Further information about payment will be sent upon booking.
