Courage & Renewal® Retreat Leadership | Sarah Hescheles & Monique Beels
Registration cost includes: program facilitation and materials, snacks, handmade journal, 2 nights private accommodation, meals Saturday breakfast through Sunday breakfast.
This retreat series will include retreatants choosing to participate in the retreat series, each retreat individually, and/or more than one retreat throughout the seasons.
Using themes drawn from autumn, winter, the equinox, and spring as inspiration and guide, together, in solitary reflection, small group engagement, and community exploration, we will seek to restore and reconnect ourselves with the dreams and visions we held embarking out on life’s personal and professional journeys.
Courage to Lead® focuses on
Inviting leaders to process personal and professional experiences.
Welcoming all people in the fullness of their lives to co-create a diverse, compassionate community dedicated to sharing and holding our stories.
Honoring each leader’s gifts, strengths, and limits which equips them to lead with increasing authenticity and courage.
Renewing, reuniting, and recovering the intersection of heart, mind, and spirit as leaders explore the inner landscape of their lives.
You are invited to increase your capacity to listen to yourself and others more deeply and to reconnect your inner passion with your outer work, to show up and lead joyfully and wholeheartedly.
This Courage to Lead retreat is modeled on the Circle of Trust® approach developed by Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal. You can learn more about “Circles of Trust” at www.couragerenewal.org/approach or in Parker Palmer’s book, A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward an Undivided Life.
