When you're committed to making the world a better place, it's vital to align your daily life and work with your core values. We help you listen, live and lead with integrity so you can serve the world with courage.
Especially useful when facing stressful demands of leadership and in times of transition, our unique, time-tested approach will give you new tools to build your capacity for resilience, be discerning in your choices, and engage the questions of your life with impeccable clarity.
Our programs offer a profound experience of our Circles of Trust® approach — as described in Parker J. Palmer’s book, A Hidden Wholeness: Journey Toward an Undivided Life. (See our signature Journey retreats.) Founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal, Palmer was named in 2011 an Utne Reader Visionary, one of “25 people who are changing your world.” See events with Parker.
