Quiet Garden

Quiet Garden in Boscombe

Quaker Friends at Friends Meeting House, Wharncliffe Road, Boscombe invite anyone who wishes to come away from the busyness of our world for a time of quiet contemplation and reflection in the calm oasis of the Meeting House and Gardens to join them on:

Each quiet garden event is opened and drawn to a close by a Quaker Friend. During the time in between all are welcome to enjoy the quiet of the gardens and the Meeting House – meditating, quietly writing, knitting/sewing, reading, sketching, whatever enables calm and contemplation. Tea, coffee, fruit juice and homemade cake is available.

Come for all, or come for part of the time – you will receive a warm welcome.

The plan is to have three quiet gardens this summer, in June, July and August

The first one will be at 1,30pm on Friday June 17th.  The topic for the first quiet garden, introduced by David Brown, will be CREATING A PRAYER BUNDLE, and this is an activity ‘borrowed’ from the shamans of Peru. All materials will be provided.

After the introduction from 1.30pm to 2pm there will be two hours of silence, either indoors or in the garden as you wish, and then we will come together again at 4pm for a short closing session which will end at 4.30pm.

Come and join us!
