About Workshops

 Workshops offer Gathering adults and high school participants the opportunity to be immersed in a topic with other interested Friends. Friends stay in the same workshop throughout the week, forming a small community within the Gathering. Each workshop meets in person from 9:00 to 11:45AM, Monday-Friday during Gathering. Most workshops include daily worship or worship sharing. 

We will offer several online-only workshop options at the 2022 Gathering. Online-only workshops will take place Monday, July 4 - Friday, July 8 for two hours each day: 2-4pm Eastern / 1-3pm Central / 12-2pm Mountain / 11am-1pm Pacific / 10am-12pm Alaskan / 8-10am Hawaiian.

Melissa's workshop is #28 The Three A's of Antiracism. Awareness: Action, Accountability. Feel stuck or spiritually frustrated by anti-racism work? Don’t know where to start or what to do next? We’ll move along the path toward accountability using discussion, instruction, meditation, self-care activities, and journaling. Together we’ll each develop a travelogue …and follow me to a more just society.  For more information click on each workshop title in the link below and you'll see a long description of each one.
