You have discovered one of the best-kept secrets of the Religious Society of Friends. Since 1943, the Friends Conference on Religion and Psychology has gathered annually on Memorial Day Weekend to provide a respite for individuals of all spiritual and religious backgrounds who wish to delve more deeply into their inner lives.
FCRP is one of the oldest conferences in the U.S. dedicated to individual spiritual exploration with a focus on in-depth psychology, specifically Jungian psychology. For the better part of the last half-century our Conference was held at Haverford College on Memorial Day weekend. It now takes place in beautiful central Pennsylvania on the campus of Lebanon Valley College.
We also have a smaller Conference in the Washington area (WFCRP) held near the end of February.
As part of a spiritual community, we seek:
- To discover our own deepest processes & nourish them
- To uncover the ways in which our new insights can help us return to the everyday world more focused and grounded in our spiritual reality
- To explore the dynamics of Quaker principles in group life and to apply them to our daily living
We warmly welcome new members, whether Quaker or not, to come for one or both Conferences or choose to become part of our ever-evolving community and network.
