The leaves blaze and descend, exposing bare limbs and wider vistas. Weather weaves a dance of warm-cold-wet-warm… It is time to savor what we are harvesting and what we are carrying into the dark month ahead. With the vista of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains as a backdrop, we will gather to explore the paradoxes of autumn: harvest and seeds, darkness and light. We invite you to bring your questions and quandaries as we explore the letting go and the letting in dance of the autumn in a Circle of Trust® community.
A Circle of Trust® is an offering of the Center for Courage & Renewal, based on the work of Parker Palmer, a remarkable teacher and author (A Hidden Wholeness, Let Your Life Speak, The Courage to Teach). This retreat is facilitated by two nationally trained C&R facilitators, committed to the intention of reconnecting who we are with what we do.
The retreat will provide:
Space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it
Seasonal reflections to tap into your inner wisdom in the fertile darkness of winter
Opportunities to develop receptive listening practices to expand your inner capacity to lead a more authentic, meaningful & engaged life
Whole group, small group, and individual time to build connection with ourselves & others.
Practices to explore soul & role in light of our professional and personal lives
An opportunity to bring life questions to a Quaker style Clearness Committee
