You are invited to this soul journey into the body of work of two contemporary spiritual writers: Jean Vanier and Parker J. Palmer. Exploring readings and video interviews in a Circles of Trust® Approach, participants will enter a lively dialogue with these contemporary spiritual, social thinkers. In Courage & Renewal® experiences, the invitation is to enter an experience of truth from within and to join with others the “eternal conversation about things that matter, conducted with passion and discipline.” (Parker J. Palmer). www.couragerenewal.org
