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:

 

Potluck/Dialogues:

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.

 

William Penn Quaker Workcamps:

Formerly Washington Quaker Workcamps, William Penn Quaker Workcamps offer opportunities for individuals to join us for regular service activities in Washington DC. Activities include participating in fellowship breakfasts, and nutrition/environmental programs such as gleaning and community gardening.  In addition, ever June we offer a DC-based week-long Workcamp as well as a 2-week Workcamp on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota the last two weeks of July. 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.
