What’s In This Retreat for Me?
Gardeners and midwives know that blossoms and birth are messy and miraculous!
The birth of renewed purpose in our own lives and in our congregational and organizational lives is messy and miraculous too.
How Will I Be Renewed?
In this retreat we will practice being hopeful gardeners of the spirit…so that we may become:
- More Willing to Risk
- More Trusting of our Inner Teacher
…and able to carry this renewed awareness into our daily lives, both personally and professionally.
Courage & Renewal® retreats are based on the work of Parker Palmer. These retreats invite you into renewal of identity, integrity and vitality. In large-group, small-group and solitary settings, we will engage with story-telling, poetry, silence and questions. It is a time for people of all vocations, from religious and non-religious communities, to hold space together for the diverse and beautiful language of our souls.
> Expand our capacity to listen and be present
> Improve our ability to build trustworthy relationships
> Deepen the courage to live more whole-heartedly
*From past attendees:
“The courage I’ve gained from these retreats-to live my life in tune with who I am-encourages those whom I serve to give themselves permission to do the same. The difference and impact has been amazing and transformative!” -from a Pastor
““Friends and mentors have been excited by the transformations they’ve seen in my life since I began participating in these retreats. I am grateful for the strengthening and for the way my life is beginning to open wider and fill with an energy and joy I hadn’t fully realized I was missing.” -MDiv student
“…for the first time in my teaching career, I gave up on the pretense that I wasn’t spiritual…Watching me bring my whole self to the classroom allowed my students to bring their whole selves too.” -Teacher
