Rediscovering Soul in Role: A Courage to Lead® Retreat

with Wint Boyd and Dan Hines



Thursday, May 30 – Sunday, June 2, 2013

There is in us an instinct for newness, for renewal,
for a liberation of creative power.
We seek to awaken in ourselves
a force which really changes our lives from within.
Thomas Merton

We live divided lives: divided between our roles and our soul. This retreat is for anyone seeking renewal of personal identity, professional integrity and vocational vitality. We will explore a process of awakening to an inner intuitive voice which can call us to live divided no more.

Over the past decade, and under the guidance of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage and Renewal, skilled facilitators have created a unique retreat-based approach to such renewal and self-discovery. Participants expand their capacity to listen and be present, improve their ability to build trustworthy relationships, and find the courage to live and work authentically.

Courage to Lead® work is framed by such questions as, “How can I maintain a strong connection between who I am and what I do?” “What practices will help me align my soul and my role?” “When pulled in so many directions that I feel dis-membered, how can I re-member myself and stay connected to the heart of my vocation?” In large-group, small-group and solitary settings, we will explore our inner journeys via personal story-telling and poetry.
