Our programs offer a profound experience of our Circle 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.”
