Based on the work of Parker J. Palmer, this Courage & Renewal® retreat (intended for residents of the U.S) offers an opportunity to come together in Canada for an exploration into wisdom, hope, and reorientation, within the contemporary social, political, and environmental experience.

Participants from various locations in the U.S. will consider issues of transition, vocation, passion, purpose, meaning, direction, and underlying life patterns in order to live in greater alignment with deeply held values.

This safe and sheltered space is provided to slow down and nurture personal and professional integrity, and the courage to lean into action. Guided by core principles and practices, which include the belief that everyone has an inner teacher, an inner source of truth, this retreat engages in contemplative practices to support personal and societal development.

Listening to your inner voice, the retreat offers time to reflect individually and in small groups. You will share stories, laughter, music, and video, and gain insights from journalling, poetry, and various wisdom traditions.
