"We prepare students to engage in the world that is and to help bring about a world that ought to be."

Lorraine Kreahling is a writer, editor, TV producer and illustrator.  She came to Friends through the Friends Conference on Religion and Psychology, an eighty-year-old Philadelphia-based Quaker organization with an interest in the intersection of spiritual growth through Quaker practice and depth psychology. She served on FCRP's board for several decades and is currently clerk.
She received her M.A. from NYU where she wrote her graduate thesis on C.G. Jung’s theory of individuation as mirrored in fairy tales, and did post-graduate work in journalism at Columbia. Her B.A. is from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. 
She has been a regular contributor to the New York Times, including to the Tuesday Science section. She has written for a range of publications—from Cosmopolitan to Crain’s New York Business, and on a wide range of subjects from commercial real estate to eating disorders, from the mechanics of yoga to environmental conservation.  
She is at work on a memoir, The Green Hotel, the story of a historic home lost to a propane explosion and fire and rebuilt with local craftsmen and an environmentally friendly heating and cooling geothermal system, a subject she’s written about for The New York Times.
