The old collective meditation of Quaker Meeting for worship starts in half an 
hour this Sunday in Fairfield, Iowa 
 Welcome to the Sunday 
 Silence-based Friends Meeting as Quakers.
 This is an unprogrammed silent-based meditative experience
 that will last for about an hour. 
 As Quakers we have 
 no formal creed 
 no paid ministers
 no preaching
 no rites
 speaking during this meeting for worship only as to where
 speaking out improves upon the silence of the meeting.
 Ours is a silence-based 
 corporate spiritual practice.
 This is an old practice,
 You are welcome to come in and sit down in silence with us,
 -Jai George Fox

be found from within.  As we have previously seen in the discussions of 
Quietism, such messages were also received in Catholic Europe around the same 
time or earlier, but met with much persecution and eventual extinction.  Thus, 
we can count Fox as being one of the greatest of Spiritual luminaries of the 
European Enlightenment era.
