Programs for Individuals

William Penn House programs share a common thread of nurturing greater peace through reflection, understanding and actions. We offer a variety of regularly-scheduled as well as special programs. Programs include:



We host potluck/dialogues the first Sunday of every month. These always have a presentation and discussion facilitated by either a Quaker or someone working in a Quaker organization. Topics range from things like building earthen homes on Indian reservations to the spirituality of living with a terminal illness.  Please check our  upcoming schedule. We also welcome your interest in facilitating a dialogue. All potlucks start at 6:30, with presentations starting at 7:30. Potlucks are open to the public. There is no charge.


Yoga - every Tuesday evening at 6:30 we host yoga for people of all ages and skill levels. The cost is $15 per class.


Youth/young adult/family seminars and Workcamps:

Throughout the year, we offer thematic and issue-oriented seminars and workcamps for people of all ages. Examples of these include Family Eco-Workcamps, Quaker high school workcamps, HIV-Leadership programs, and workcamps for fellows and interns in DC.  This year we are also organizing a 3-week "Creating the Peaceable Kingdom" Workcamp, addressing indigenous rights and the relations of Friends and Indians. Costs and lengths  of programs vary. Check our calendar for upcoming events.


Professional Programs:

We also run professional development programs that nurture greater peace in professions and institutions. Teachers of Peace and Appreciative Inquiry are two examples of the types of programs we offer.

We welcome you to check our calendar of events regularly, or sign up to receive our e-newsletters that include information about these events.  Please contact us to learn more.
