Scholarship Contribution: David Abram Retreat

Between the Body and the Breathing Earth
A Retreat with David Abram
Scholarship Contribution

Friends of Silence has the wonderful opportunity to host writer and ecologist David Abram as he leads "Between the Body and the Breathing Earth" at Still Point, October 8-11. To make this amazing retreat possible for all who desire to come, we must raise money for scholarships. 

The fee for this retreat is set to cover our real costs (food, lodging, materials, travel and just compensation for David Abram). While we are doing our best to economize, the fee is still too steep for some, and we would like for everyone who wants or needs to come to be able to do so. You can help make that possible.

You can make your contribution online by clicking on the "Add to Cart" link below, or by check made out to Friends of Silence (write Breathing Earth Scholarship Fund in the memo line, please). Send your check to Friends of Silence, 120 Jubilee Ln., Harpers Ferry, WV 25425.
