My children attend a camp in Vermont called Farm and Wilderness, and we go for family work weekends on a regular basis. The camp was started in the Quaker tradition, and one of the rituals that they still practice at camp is silent meeting. We circle up and sit quietly for about 45 minutes. The benches that form the circle are in a clearing in the woods and in the middle are wild flowers. This is a painting I did from one of the pictures I took after silent meeting recently.
