Quakers, Pagans, and Ritual


Well-Known Member
I understand that some forms of modern Quakerism has welcomed neo-pagans into its midst. I have read some pretty good articles in favor of this move by Quakers online.

I understand that historically Quakerism is quite averse to ritual. If there are some neo-pagan Quakers on this forum, do you practice rituals or do you merely combine neo-pagan beliefs with Quaker-style sitting meditation only?

If you do practice rituals, how do you reconcile this with Quakerism's historic reservations regarding ritual?

I am very impressed with the Quaker community, so I would love to know more. :)
