Friends Conference on Religion & Psychology

  • May 28, 2021
  • 6:00 PM
  • May 31, 2021

Please feel welcome to attend the Friends Conference on Religion & Psychology, at Pendle Hill, in Wallingford PA, from Friday, May 28, 6:00 p.m., through lunch on Monday, May 31. FCRP is dedicated to individual spiritual exploration with a focus on in-depth psychology, specifically Jungian psychology. The conference is open to all; you need not be a Quaker, a Jungian, or a psychologist.

            In this 79th year of the conference, the topic will be the Alchemy of an Extraordinary Year and its Potential for Personal Transformation. A worldwide pandemic and a tumultuous political year that have left our country more deeply divided have resulted in uncertainty, fear, loss, and trauma for us all. But such challenging times offer opportunities for growth, or as Jung might put it, “to kindle a Light in the darkness.”

            The road to wholeness begins with a journey through the darkness of who we are, according to Jung. And Quakers trust that the Inward Light will lead us. Inspired by these guiding principles, this year’s Friends Conference on Religion and Psychology—the 79th annual and our 2nd virtual conference—will begin to work with what we’ve witnessed in this extraordinary year, and use it as fuel for transformation.

            We have invited two speakers for our May 2021 conference. Each was to have been the Plenary Speaker at our traditional in-residence conferences we’d planned for 2020 and 2021. Both Marian Dunlea and Monika Wikman are well- known Jungian analysts and authors. Both recognize that authentic change requires more than thinking. There will be interest groups that meet four times during the weekend. The interest groups center on a wide range of topics including Creative Writing and Mindful Movement, Tai Chi, Death & Dying, the Joy of Movement, and Poetry Discussion among other themes. Please visit: http://fcrp. for more information and/or to register. Space is limited.
