You are invited to the shores of Lake Huron for a time set apart to deepen your experience of:
“My habits form my leadership.”
Each retreat will use the season as inspiration and guide combined with one of the “Habits of the Heart” (HOH) Parker J. Palmer identifies in Healing the Heart of Democracy, as the catalysts for exploring your heart’s habits, cultivating your capacity to practice habits which nurture life-giving relationships, and living and leading with increasing integrity and courage. Exploring our habits will also invite us 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 examine personal and professional experiences by listening deeply to their “inner wisdom”.
Welcoming all people to co-create a compassionate community dedicated to sharing and holding our stories.
Honoring each leader’s gifts, strength, and limits in a way which encourages them to explore the inner landscape of their lives and uncover the interconnection of their life patterns and leadership.
Encouraging leaders to see themselves whole, clarify their voice, speak their convictions, and receive the truths of all people.
Renewing, reuniting, and recovering the intersection of heart, mind, and spirit as leaders explore the habit(s) of their heart and how they influence their leadership.
In solitary reflection, small group engagement, and community exploration, the circle will co-create space for leaders to identify and experience how their soul is formed by practices of their heart and how their heart forms their leadership. Leaders will grow an aptitude and appreciation for turning inside to lead outside. Attend to and fostering “habits of the heart” combined with an intention to practice wholehearted leadership developed a leader’s capacity for self-awareness, self-management, deep listening, living and leading from core values, and co-creating community with passion and joy!
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.
