Australasia

Australasia is the first region outside North America to actively grow Courage & Renewal work. Inspired by the initial work of Dr. Janet Smith, Australasia is now home to a growing group of facilitators prepared by the Center for Courage & Renewal.

Offering retreats in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, facilitators with Courage & Renewal Australasia come from diverse geographic and vocational backgrounds. They bring together expertise in Education, Health Care, Clergy and Faith Communities, Aged Care, Tertiary Education, Transition to Retirement, Leadership development, Mindfulness and Professional Coaching.

See below for individual facilitator profiles and a listing of upcoming public retreats and other programs.
