Evaluating the weekend!

Woodbrooke Labyrinth by Joseph McGarraghy

Thank you so much for completing the evaluation forms, which really helps the Woodbrooke team to assess the course.

They also provide very useful feedback for Alison and me to design further courses.

What did you originally hope for in attending this event?

I hoped to learn about Pagan ways and celebrations and how they connected with the Quaker Way

Help with how to integrate my own pagan leanings with Quaker Orthodoxy

Confirmation that it is ‘alright’ to be a Pagan Quaker

Some understanding of the Quaker Way and about the Pagan Way too as I have been drawn to both but believed them to be mutually exclusive

Exploring where Pagan and Quaker ways touch and overlap and a clearer idea if where I stand on this

What, for you, was good about the event?

The generous acceptance of my ignorance and finding out that Pagan Quakers exist and maybe I can work towards being one

The sensuality, joy and juiciness of the activities. Connecting and re-connecting with like-minded people. Ideas on how I might find ways to embody my own spirituality and express my experience of the divine in ways which are personally meaningful

It dispelled some fears and it was good to be with like-minded people including the tutors

The fire! The walk! Licking dewdrops from the branches

The Woodbrooke ethos

What was not so good for you?

Could have used a little more discussion/analysis on how meetings deal with Pagan/Quaker spirituality

I would have liked to have learnt more about pagan ways

A lot of time thinking
