DO QUAKERS PRAY? by Jennifer Kavanagh

by: Jennifer Kavanagh

We have included another article by our friend Jennifer Kavanagh, who gave up her career as a literary agent to work in the community in London’s East End. She is now a wise spiritual teacher. This book outlines her experience from practising inside the Quaker tradition but it describes common principles from within the spiritual life. Quakerism has always been seen as the least dogma-laden branch of Christianity and one that many of us can approach without taking on mainstream Christianity per se. It’s a very hospitable place to work on our own contemplative and devotional practices. So, what is prayer according to her? What are the best conditions in which to pray? And how does prayer relate to practices within other religions, like Buddhism?
