Spiritual Discernment 

Dear <<First Name>>,

What is "yours" to do?  Your uniquely faithful response begins with spiritual discernment—making choices with God, and all the process and practices that support Spirit-centered decisions. Many hope for it, seek it, pray for it, and even try varied techniques. But your inner experience of the Divine in discernment is far beyond techniques. 

Please read the exciting new possibilities for your discernment with Way of the Spirit below. Apply now or forward this message to someone who may wish to join us in 2020.

In hope and gratitude,
Chris Hall, director Way of the Spirit

Quaker Wisdom for All

Quakers for three and a half centuries have offered helpful language for the vast inner landscape of spiritual discernment. They talk of leadings, nudges, or being drawn by the Holy in ways that offer practical direction to individuals and groups. 

Way of the Spirit welcomes sincere seekers from varied faith communities or without affiliation. We are enriched by the gifts of the Quaker heritage even as Quakers are nourished by other perspectives.

Our experiential exploration of discernment includes Ignatius of Loyola, the desert monastics, and the insights of contemporary authors on Centering Prayer.
