Eight Years of Way of the Spirit

Published: Dec. 7, 2019

When I graduated from the ecumenical Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry in 2008, I began a dialogue with the School of the Spirit Ministry in Philadelphia, about offering a similar Quaker contemplative study program in the West. After several years of consultation and program development, I launched the first Way of the Spirit retreat cycle in January 2012.

Since then, Way of the Spirit has offered 45 retreats between January 2012 and November 2019. That’s over 225 days of reflection, prayer and growing with God.

Way of the spirit is now preparing for another year of retreats, both residential and distance-learning:
