Serving Those Who Serve

When we approach our lives and our work with genuine passion and integrity, we are able to serve others with courage and commitment. These programs foster personal and professional renewal by offering the time and space to reflect on life and work.


Based on the Circles of Trust® approach developed by the Center for Courage & Renewal--as described in Parker Palmer’s book, A Hidden Wholeness, these retreats are intended for anyone who wants to live and work more wholeheartedly - including those in education, healthcare, law, philanthropy, religious life, and community organizing.


Skilled facilitators, prepared by the Center for Courage & Renewal, 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 hear our own inner voice.


Retreat Series Description

Sustaining the Courage to Serve goes well beyond a one time, “mountain top” experience. In this experiential program, a cohort of some twenty participants journey through four retreats over one year. In large groups, small groups, and solitary settings, participants use personal stories, reflections on professional practice, time in nature, and insights from poets, storytellers, and various wisdom traditions to explore the relationship between the inner life of mind and spirit and the outer life of work and service in the world. Clearness Committees, a communal process of discernment around a vocational or other life issue, will be offered as part of this retreat.


During that time we:

  1. Offer participants a meaningful break from the demands of daily life; an opportunity to slow down and take a

    journey of renewal.

  1. Create a soul-safe space that supports the inner journey, strengthens us for work in the world, and can be taken

    home to help renew family, workplace, and community life.

  1. Focus on deep listening in community--to ourselves and to each other.
