Compassionate Listening Intro Training


Healing Our World from the Inside Out

with Tom McSteen

June 16th - July 21st, Tuesdays, 10:00 am - 12:15 PM Pacific Time; 6 sessions on Zoom

Humanity is waking up to our interconnectedness as never before - to one another and to the Earth. We believe that learning to listen with compassion to ourselves and others is a key to this awakening, and that our evolutionary capacity is directly linked to our ability to navigate conflict.

Being Quaker for Others


Instead of holding its annual in-person conference this year, Quakers Uniting in Publications (QUIP) is offering a series of public webinars on topics concerning Quaker publishing.

Please join us on Saturday, June 6, 2020, at 12:00 noon, Eastern Time, for the last in the series, Ashley Wilcox’s interactive webinar.  Zoom instructions are below.

Regional Biases


Dear Friends: I came across a film potentially of Quaker interest called Hillbilly. It is about the modern-day people of Appalachia and was awarded Best Documentary Feature at the 2019 Los Angeles Film Festival. 

Ashley York, co-director and star of Hillbilly, grew up in Kentucky and left to become a film maker in Los Angeles. She returned to her home and through interviews with fellow Kentuckians, she crafted this documentary. It exposes the feelings of shame engendered by mainstream cultural ridicule of the Appalachian regional accent and mountain identity.

Memorial Day of Mourning


Hi, All – I am circulating this idea, which came out of a Chicago Meeting, to many of you.  Not sure what Albuquerque Meeting will be doing, but it will be something.  In peace, Sara

Northside Friends Meeting is a Quaker Meeting located in the Uptown Neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and Illinois quarantine we have continued to worship and share fellowship over video from our homes and have drawn comfort and strength from this continuing connection to our community.
