Friends Conference on Religion & Psychology

  • May 27, 2022
  • 6:00 PM
  • May 30, 2022

Please feel welcome to attend the Friends Conference on Religion & Psychology, at Pendle Hill, in Wallingford PA, from Friday, May 27, 6:00 p.m., through lunch on Monday, May 30. 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 80th year of the conference, the topic will be “The Neurobiology of the Spirit: Compassionate Witness and the Chemistry of Healing.” We have all been traumatized by the pandemic in some way. Our dependable daily rhythms and patterns have been disrupted. We have been isolated from the company of loved ones, and often from our in-person work community. We may have had to care for someone who was ill or even suffered the loss of someone dear in this time of upended traditions. Stephen W. Porges, Ph.D. and his wife and colleague, C. Sue Carter, Ph.D., have intermingled their lives’ research to understand the complexities of the body's chemistry in healing and health. They also can help us understand why it is possible to recover from early trauma and not only heal but thrive in the presence of compassion.

There will be interest groups that meet four times during the weekend. For details, see: Space is limited. If you would like assistance in covering the cost,  contact someone from Pastoral Care
