Dayspring Silent Retreat for Friends

  • June 23, 2023
  • June 25, 2023

Dayspring’s natural beauty, precious solitude and spiritual companionship await us along with summer's arrival. True silence is to the spirit what sleep is to the body: nourishment and refreshment. (William Penn, 1699.) Is your spirit in need of nourishment and refreshment?

  • Come to the Dayspring Silent Retreat from the evening of Friday, June 23 to Sunday afternoon, June 25. We will keep the silence from Friday evening through worship on Sunday.
  • This is an opportunity for 18 Quakers from different Meetings to share silence during the weekend.
  • Requirements which remain related to COVID-19 are: 1) full vaccination and 2) a negative home rapid test taken the Friday of our retreat. Masks are encouraged in public areas of the Lodge and Inn.
  • There will be ample outdoor seating on the patio, front lawn and porch available for meals and worship, in addition to indoor space.
  • Location: The Dayspring Retreat Center, 11301 Neelsville Church Road, Germantown MD 20876. The cost of the retreat is $250 via check. The registration deadline is Friday, June 16.  To Register: Jean Christianson, 410-908-1912.
