The School of the Spirit Ministry serves all those who wish to be more faithful listeners and responders to the work of the Inward Teacher. The ministry is grounded in prayer and offers programs rooted in the Quaker contemplative tradition of the living silence. Read our Core Characteristics.

The School of the Spirit’s concern is with preparation for ministry through

It is crucially important to encourage the growth of this kind of ministry.
