Celebrate the coming of the New Year at Pendle Hill. Be inspired by a musical adventure with Maestro Karl Middleman, renew body and spirit in a mindfulness retreat led by Valerie Brown, or combine creativity with reflection in the art studio with Melanie Weidner. However you participate in our New Years programming, you will be treated to a delicious home-cooked New Year’s Eve dinner, a chamber concert featuring returning soprano sensation Jessica Lennick, and our traditional midnight meeting for worship.

Embrace winter’s gifts of introspection, and give in to the sacred, creative rhythms of your inner life. Nourishing poetry, imagery, and meditation will invite you to celebrate the passing year and explore your longings, leadings, and intentions for the year to come. Express that inspiration and wisdom through fun, beautiful paper arts collage, and simple creative writing.


Melanie Weidner, M.Div., is an artist, spiritual director, and workshop leader shaped by years of Quaker, contemplative, and mindfulness practice. Her work celebrates beauty, presence, self-reflection, compassion, and joy. For more information about Melanie and her work, visit
