A Courage & Renewal® Retreat
Begins: November 15th at 7pm Ends: November 18th at 2pm
“Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am.” ― Parker J. Palmer
There is a source of deep and trustworthy wisdom lying beneath the broken pieces of our lives: ‘a hidden wholeness’. This knowing is embedded and revealed in our stories, our intuitions and in our authentic selfhood. It is possible to live a whole-hearted life.
In this safe and quiet Circle of Trust®, we make use of practices that support one another to find renewed courage, purpose and direction. This is a creative program that asks us to recalibrate our direction and to reclaim who we truly are. Our lives are not just our experiences, but how we make meaning from all that we encounter.
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. 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.
