Flowing Streams 2016 includes content presentations, silence, daily Eucharist (Holy Communion), morning and night prayer, and listening circle discussion and response in a welcoming, non-threatening setting.  These elements are common in all Upper Room Academy settings.

Flowing Streams is an intentional opportunity to explore a variety of spiritual practices, featuring learning sessions, practical experience, spiritual discussions, and fellowship following the model of the Five Day Academy for Spiritual Formation of the Upper Room, but in a more compact weekend format intended for those who are unable to attend a full Five Day Academy.
