Experiment with Light

This is a short video of an interview with Rex Ambler that was recorded for the Experiment with Light network. Rex talks about how he developed the practice of Experiment with Light, what he has learned from it in his own life, and how it has influenced the Meetings that have used it, and the Quaker movement more widely.

    I'm hoping there is something you can do for deaf and hard of hearing readers.

    Many thank you much !

  2. Hi Roberta, I've typed it out to the best of my ability in a word doc and can send it to you if you'd still like it. I'm just not sure how to post it here. Warm regards Moira Darling

    1. Thanks Roberta for highlighting this, and to Moira for your work on a transcript.


"When words are strange or disturbing to you, try to sense where they come from and what has nourished the lives of others. Listen patiently and seek the truth which other people's opinions may contain for you. Avoid hurtful criticism and provocative language. Do not allow the strength of your convictions to betray you into making statements or allegations that are unfair or untrue. Think it possible that you may be mistaken."
