Fall YAF retreat October 18-20
Dear Friends,

As young adults, many of us are in a season of change. Whether its external changes like starting at a new school, job, relationship, or living situation or internal changes that are harder to capture neatly, transition surrounds us. It can be a struggle to stay rooted in habits and practices that keep us grounded during times of continual change. At this stage of life, it takes intention to carve out time and space for the soul to catch up with all that is new and shifting.

Are you looking to carve out some time to care for yourself in this way? If so, I hope you will consider joining us for the fall Young Adult Friends (YAF) retreat this October 18-20 in Providence, RI.

At this weekend long gathering for young adults (ages 18-35) who are Quaker or interested in Quaker practices, we will honor what’s happening in our lives with the theme “Grounded Amid Transition”. Together, we will create space to reflect on our individual and shared experiences, try on Quaker spiritual practices, laugh, eat, enjoy autumn in Providence, and connect.
