Courage and Renewal retreats provide a safe and confidential space to dive deeply into what is most important to us, into our essence and inner knowing, so we can bring greater meaning and purpose to our daily lives. In this retreat we will explore questions of transition, life passion, purpose, meaning, direction, relationships, and underlying life patterns, to help us live in alignment with our deepest values and act with integrity and authenticity.
Based on the work of Parker J. Palmer, this retreat promotes reflection, clarity, and insight in a safe, quiet, nurturing, and confidential environment. Using seasonal themes and metaphors we explore poetry, prose, music, artwork, journaling, stories from various wisdom traditions, periods of silence, mindfulness meditation practices, and the natural beauty of the great outdoors. We share periods of quiet self-reflection, and large and small group sharing, as well as much laughter and lightness. Clearness Committees, a 400+ year old Quaker process of discernment, (www.couragerenewal.org/clearnesscommittee), are the capstone of this retreat.
Beginning at 2:00PM on April 9; ending with lunch on April 11
