Listening to the “still small voice” is central to Quaker practice, and that voice is the touchstone for our life’s journey. Sometimes we are beset with uncertainty as other noisy voices interfere with our ability to hear divine guidance. This interactive workshop will expand the range and methods of accessing inner wisdom and differentiating the voice of the Inward Teacher from the inner critic. It will explore using such tools as guided mediation, journaling, collage, sketching, and discussions. Activities will also increase awareness of how to tap into wisdom from the body and how it is different when it is located in different places—the gut, the heart, the head, the feet, the hands.
