This workshop will focus on practical skills that will enhance our ability to enter into deep, transformative worship. We will explore how we prepare for worship, how we center down, how to listen to each other with our whole being – body, mind, and spirit, and how to better open to each other and the Divine during worship. We will create a deep sense of community from which to access our individual and collective wellsprings of the Source. Our work together will be experiential and immediate and draw us into a deeper experience of our rich practice as Friends.


Christopher Sammond formerly general secretary of New York Yearly Meeting, loves facilitating the creation of a safe space which invites all Friends to open in heart and spirit, to
re-member their wholeness, to share in a sense of rich community, and to touch the Divine Source. He has led scores of interactive workshops and retreats for Friends over many years, including ones at Powell House, Woolman Hill, Pendle Hill, Earlham School of Religion, the Friends United Meeting Triennial, the Friends World Committee for Consultation World Gathering, and the Friends General Conference Gathering.  Many of his workshops over the past 14 years have focused on deepening the experience of worship for monthly, quarterly, and regional meetings.
