How to bring FCE to your community

Increasingly, Quaker Meetings and other communities are seeking ways of being supportive to couples and families under their care. Couple retreats are a means of providing “continuing education” for couples in strengthening and deepening their relationships. The Quaker context of our workshops provides a spiritual foundation and a link to our other experiences as Friends.

There is a particular richness when a retreat is held for couples within a single meeting or community. It not only enriches the individual couple relationships, but it also deepens the bonds of caring among the couples in the group, and thus enriches the meeting or community as well.
