Spring teaches me to look more carefully for the green stems of possibility: for the intuitive hunch that may turn into a larger insight, for the glance or touch that may thaw a frozen relationship, for the stranger's act of kindness that makes the world seem hospitable again.
Parker J Palmer – ‘Seasons’ article to welcome Fetzer
Self care is never a selfish act - it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others. Anytime we listen to true self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch. Parker J Palmer Let Your Life Speak.
In this retreat, skilled facilitators help create a quiet, focused, and disciplined space—a circle of trust—in which the noise within us and around us can subside and we can begin to hear our own inner voice. In the large group, small groups, and solitary settings, we will explore the intersection of our personal and professional lives, making use of stories from our own journeys and insights from poets, storytellers, and various wisdom traditions. Each retreat includes a Clearness Committee where you learn to listen deeply and ask insightful “open and honest” questions.
Facilitators Michael Prince and Anne Courtney have been prepared by the Centre for Courage & Renewal. Sharon Cooke is a facilitator in preparation.
