Quaker Spiritual Disciplines

The practice of Quakerism doesn’t just take place on Sunday morning. Many of us have spiritual disciplines that we carry throughout the week. Patricia McBee explores the Quaker disciplines that address this need.

  1. I just started listening to these videos recently. I’ve been involved in meditation all of my life and recently found out that my 9th great grandfather was one of the first Quakers in the colonies. His name was Ambrose Dixon and held meeting with Friends in his home in Maryland. I thoroughly enjoyed the video of Quaker disciplines. It is pretty much what I have practiced all my life. Withdraw from the field of activity into That Silence and then plunge back into activity, bringing That Silence with me.

  2. Thank you Patricia for this video. It really speaks. It would be great if you collect these thoughts into a book along the lines of “Quaker Spiritual Disciplines” – as it is one of the things that really sets us apart.
    Could you please give us more articles along these lines. Kind regards from Bandung Indonesia.

  3. I have started the practice of Turning Within, taught by Kelvin Chin, Quaker meditative practice sounds very similar. Are there any scriptures that describe or instruct the meditative practice?

  4. this really demonstrates the simplicity of Quaker Practise and the power of that practise to guide and support us.

  5. I’d be very keen to see any writings Patricia has generated on this topic if they are available. Can anyone direct me to a source?
