At Le Monastere, in a haven of heritage, culture, and wellness, take part in a Circles of Trust® experience based on the work of author Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal.

In this program, you will explore issues of transition, vocation, passion, life purpose, meaning, direction, and underlying life patterns to live in greater alignment with your deepest values. You will be invited to listen to your own inner wisdom, and to reconnect who you are with what you do.

The program provides a safe and sheltered space to slow down and nurture personal and professional integrity, and the courage to act. Guided by core principles and practices, which include the knowledge that everyone has an inner teacher, an inner source of truth, this multi-day experience engages contemplative practices to support personal and societal development.

Listening to your inner voice, the program offers time to reflect individually and in small groups, share stories, laughter, music, and video, and gain insights from journaling, poetry, and from various wisdom traditions. Savour early morning periods of silence, guided meditation, and gentle movement.

The program is facilitated in English.
