Courage Earth 2014

October 31, 2014 - November 2, 2014
Tatamagouche NS


Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2014 Fri 7:00 PM – Sun 3:00 PM $370.00


This retreat is an extension of the work of Parker Palmer and the Centre for Courage and Renewal. Using a Circle of Trust® we will explore opportunities for each of us to attend to our primary relationships to the world around us. 

Time will be spent in guided outdoor activities, in solitude and community, connecting to the many forms of life around Tatamagouche Bay (sea, sky, earth, plants and animals.) Story, music/song, video and text will help us reflect on our unique response to these experiences.

We invite you to immerse yourself in the abundant wisdom of Earth community and through this exchange renew your abilities to serve people and the planet from your own context.
