Quaker Wisdom: Echoes in Our Souls

Baltimore Yearly Meeting Women’s Retreat

January 26-28, 2018

Pearlstone Center, Reisterstown, MD

ALL EVENTS are in the MAIN BUILDING unless otherwise noted. We encourage you to go at your own pace. Use the weekend as a retreat; take personal time for yourself as needed. Meals are long so that you don’t have to rush to get there; linger over your conversations. Take a nap, or a walk, if you’d rather do that.
