Our current charity is The Phoenix Prison Trust
"The Prison Phoenix Trust encourages prisoners in the development of their spiritual welfare, through the practices of meditation and yoga, working with silence and the breath."

Link to Experiment with Light introductory course at Woodbrooke February 2017
Quaker faith and practice are based on the authority of experience. “This I knew experimentally” said George Fox. The course is an opportunity to experience a meditation practice drawn from the writings of early Friends. It can be searching and powerful. We will reflect on the significance of the Light for our lives today, and how we might be helped to access it, including in supportive Light groups. This course aims to deepen the spiritual lives of participants.
