While the land around us is dark and cold, so much is going on inside. Seeds, dreams, wishes and wisdom find their beginnings as earth slowly turns toward the sun. At this time of new beginnings, we invite you to take time for inner listening in the company of others and in the safety of a Circle of Trust – “where people can find safe space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it.”

A Circle of Trust is an offering of the Center for Courage & Renewal, based on the work of Parker Palmer, a remarkable teacher and author (A Hidden Wholeness, Let Your Life Speak, The Courage to Teach). This retreat is facilitated by two nationally trained C&R facilitators, committed to the intention of reconnecting who we are with what we do. 

The retreat will provide:

  • Space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it
  • Seasonal reflections to tap into your inner wisdom in the fertile darkness of winter
  • Opportunities to develop receptive listening practices to expand your inner capacity to lead a more authentic, meaningful & engaged life
  • Whole group, small group, and individual time to build connection with ourselves & others.
  • Practices to explore soul & role in light of our professional and personal lives
  • An opportunity to bring life questions to a Quaker style Clearness Committee
