Journey Toward An Undivided Life: An Introductory Circle Of Trust ®

September 10, 2012 - September 16, 2012


Based on the work of Parker J. Palmer, this Circle of Trust ® retreat explores the intersection of our personal and professional lives. Using poetry, meditation, dialogue, stories, music, movement, relaxation and journaling, we foster renewal of body and mind. Those in professions such as organizational leadership, education, community service, law and medicine know the challenge of sustaining our values and beliefs. The more passionate we are about our work, the more vital it is to take time to renew our spirit. Three off-Ranch trips planned: to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs, Christ in the Desert Monastery and Georgia O’Keeffe’s home and studio in Abiquiu village.
