The Year End Retreat: On Quaker Eldering

With Elaine Emily and Mary Kay Glazer
(in person)

Wednesday – Monday
December 28, 2023 – January 1, 2024

More info: Quaker Center

Come to the redwoods to celebrate and reflect with friends on the turning of the year. We’ll also learn about Elaine and Mary Kay’s new book about the Quaker spiritual practice, ministry, and discipline of eldering. Book is available here: An Invitation to Quaker Eldering: On Being Faithful to the Ministry of Spiritual Nurture Among Friends.

Elaine Emily is a spiritual director and lifelong seeker. Her current exploration of eldering has been informed by her life experiences as a mother, grandmother, and social worker, as well as her mystical experiences and connections with a variety of different faith communities and social activists. She has traveled extensively among Quakers as an elder and facilitating workshops about eldering.
Mary Kay Glazer is a spiritual director, retreat leader, Life-Cycle Celebrant and writer. She began learning about Quaker eldering at a workshop in the mid-2000s, after which Elaine Emily invited her to a small gathering of elders to tell their eldering stories. What a wonderful journey it has been! She lives in Greenville, NC, with her husband. They are members of Rich Square Monthly Meeting (NCYM-C) and Greenville NC Quaker Worship Group.
