November 24 – 26, 2017
Fri 7 pm to Sun 3 pm
King’s Fold Retreat Centre
Cochrane, Alberta, Canada
$400 CAD (includes room & board)
Based on the work of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal, this retreat explores issues of transition, vocation, life passion, purpose, meaning, direction, aging, relationships, and underlying life patterns, to live in alignment with one’s deepest values and the courage to act with integrity and authenticity. In a safe, quiet, nurturing, and confidential environment, this retreat promotes reflection, clarity and insight. We will engage in contemplative practices to support personal and societal transformation.
Using seasonal themes and metaphors we explore poetry, prose, music, gentle guided movement, video, journaling, stories from various wisdom traditions, periods of silence, mindfulness meditation practices, and the natural beauty of King’s Fold. We share periods of quiet self-reflection, and large and small group discussions, as well as much laughter and lightness. Clearness Committees, a 16th century Quaker process of discernment, is the capstone of the retreat.
