Courage & Renewal

For over 22 years, I have been leading Circles of Trust® retreats in collaboration with the Center for Courage & Renewal under the guidance of Dr. Parker Palmer, internationally recognized author.

Retreats are based on the premise that when we reconnect who we are with what we do, we approach our lives and work with renewed passion, commitment, and integrity. Retreats, called Courage to Teach®, Courage to Lead® or Circles of Trust®, make use of poetry and stories, solitude, reflection, time in nature, the arts, and deep listening. They give time and space to listen to the inner voice, leading each to unfold in her or his own way. We open to the mysteries of what we don’t fully know, and in the process build a sense of community and connection with ourselves and others.
