Peter Parr

Peter Parr combines working four days a week as a civil servant with writing and facilitating workshops. Part of a group called The Kindlers, he visits Quaker meetings around the country to lead days of reflection and exploration. He is passionate about enabling people to reflect on their spiritual journeys and understandings and to get to know one another more deeply in ‘the things which are eternal’. For several years, Peter hosted and facilitated an ecumenical house group, linked to the Progressive Christianity Network UK, for people to explore questions of faith. Peter has been a Quaker since 2005 and attends Hastings Meeting. He is also a student of A Course in Miracles. His first novel, which explores themes of guilt and redemption, was published in 2016.

Discernment

How do we make decisions and seek guidance. What is the difference between judging and discerning? Do we make decisions based on head, heart, gut instinct? How can we best balance these ways of knowing and how can we expand or hone our personal ways of knowing and receiving guidance?

Flourishing

There is a shift underway in spirituality today, from a heaven-focused spirituality which placed great emphasis on transcending the world and the human condition to one which leads to an appreciation of the interconnectedness of all life and deeper engagement with humanity, and a realization of our place within the whole cosmos. This shift in emphasis is leading people to a greater need and the desire to work together for the common good and a world where all can flourish.
