Seeking Connections: Exploring Inter-spirituality
The Mary Ward Centre is glad to host Seeking Connections: Exploring Inter-spirituality. This is an opportunity for spiritual directors to continue to reflect on visioning an inclusive and contemplative community.
LIVING AND LEADING WITH COURAGE AND INTEGRITY- A CIRCLE OF TRUST PROFESSIONAL RETREAT
Based on the Courage to Teach® and Circle of Trust ® programs, this professional development opportunity supports the personal and professional renewal of educators, and those in other helping professions.
This professional retreat does not focus on professional techniques or institutional reform. Rather, it supports the renewal of the self-knowledge and emotional intelligence of participants.
The program offers participants opportunities to reflect on the inner dimensions of their professional lives. Up to 30 participants are invited to engage in honest self-reflection and explore questions about purpose, values, and commitment to challenging work. In doing so, participants are invited to increase a capacity to listen to self and others more deeply, to reconnect their inner passion with their outer work, in order to show up more wholeheartedly. Participation is always by invitation and not demand – attendees participate and share according to their own comfort level.
Mardi Tindal and Michael Saver, skilled facilitators certified by the Center for Courage and Renewal (www.couragerenewal.org) founded by esteemed educator, author and activist Parker J. Palmer, work to create a trustworthy space - a circle of trust - within which participants may explore their deepest wisdom to find courage and renewal for their life and work.
Date: Feb. 10th and 11th, 2018
Location: The Mary Ward Centre
