Our mission is to foster the spiritual growth of Friends (Quakers) and others
and to strengthen the application of Friends' testimonies in the world.
We offer programs for adults and youth.
We rent this quiet space for your family reunions, school retreats, church groups, and small conferences.
Calling all massage therapists, hospice nurses, nurses, Reiki or Healing Touch practitioners, occupational and physical therapists, social workers, and F/friends who combine various practices of healing including prayer. This weekend is for you.
There is a spiritual basis for healing in many traditions. You know that. You are involved in healing work – whether it is a vocation or Meeting for Worship for Healing. Come and be with us. It is an opportunity for us to gather and support one another in this work, this ministry. We’ll share insights and stories, new learnings and leadings.
There will be some time for one on one work Saturday afternoon. In the evening we’ll have Meeting for Healing or a Healing Circle.
Hannelore Devlin, Doylestown MM in PYM, and Ron Peterson, Fredonia MM, are coordinating the weekend. Hannelore has a full time holistic practice using predominantly the ancient Japanese healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ)®. Ron, a gifted elder, has used his healing hands as way opens and is actively involved in the Healing Center at Summer Sessions.
This is an intergenerational weekend.

For a summer vacation the whole family will love, all you'll need to pack is a sense of adventure and fun! Inspired by Jules Verne's classic novel, Around the World in 80 Days, this weekend will feature food, music, crafts and games from the regions that Phileas Fogg and Passepartout visited. We'll have fun with disguises and dress-up, and enjoy a special reader's theater performance at Cabaret followed by a foreign film festival for teens. Book lovers and folks of all ages will enjoy gathering to unpack some of the novel's enduring themes. The perennial pleasures of an early summer weekend by the lake, on the trails or at the campground offers opportunities for spiritual renewal and relaxation. We hope you will join us for this intergenerational weekend which truly has something for everyone!
