The time for workshops will be 1 1/2 hours, and the workshops will be on Saturday morning (possibly Saturday afternoon as well, depending on how many proposals we have.) We anticipate there being between 2-4 workshops running concurrently.
Lifting up gifts among YAFs and providing a space for practice and experimentation is a priority of the YAF Working Group. While we hope everyone who is interested in facilitating a workshop will be able to, it's possible that we will we have more workshop proposals than workshop slots. In that case we would look for other opportunities at a future retreat or event for that workshop to be shared.
While workshops need not be limited to this, some potential workshop ideas for the YAF retreat are:
- visual art as spiritual practice (painting, collage, drawing, photography, etc)
- reading Quaker & other spiritual texts of renewal
- music, dance
- massage, bodywork
- yoga, guided meditation
- writing, journaling, poetry
- labyrinth creating & walking
- anything else that fits your take on the theme!
Please submit workshop proposals by Wednesday, September 26! Thanks!
