Emilia Fogelklou (1878-1972) was a Swedish Quaker, mystic, author, teacher of religion, peace builder during two world wars, and the first woman in Sweden to receive a degree in theology (1909). Her message remains fresh, inspirational and challenging. This 6-week retreat will be an opportunity to reflect on brief passages of her writing and their meaning for your faith and life. It is a personal retreat that offers reflective interaction with other participants and the retreat leader.
