Event description

Description

A summer begins, come take a day for yourself in a beautiful setting to reconnect with your inner wisdom In a Circle of Trust. This day-long retreat is based on the work of Parker Palmer, a remarkable teacher and author ( A Hidden Wholeness, Let Your Life Speak, Courage to Teach, Healing the Heart of Democracy). Parker describes a Circle of Trust:

We speak our own truth; we listen receptively to the truth of others; we ask each other honest, open questions instead of giving counsel; and we ofer each other the healing and empowering gifts of silence and laughter. This way of being together is so counter-cultural that it requires clear explanation, steady practice, and gentle but firm enforcement by a facilitator. But once we have experienced it, we want to take this way of being intoother relationships.” --Parker Palmer, A Hidden Wholeness

This day will provide:

• Space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it;

• Focus on the art of open and honest questioning, developing receptive listening, and practicing empathy as keys to understanding others and moving beyond habitual tendencies to try to “fix” people and give advice;

• Whole group, small group, and individual time where we’ll use our own stories, as well as insight from poets and storytellers from various traditions, to develop our intuition and inner wisdom;

• Practices to explore soul & role in light of current professional and personal situations.

Cost: $100 includes lunch, materials and facilitation. For sliding scale options, please email us at info@wholeheartinc.org.
