Based on the work of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal, this workshop explores issues of transition, vocation, life passion, purpose, meaning, direction, aging, relationships, and underlying life patterns, to live in alignment with one’s deepest values and the courage to act with integrity and authenticity. In a safe, quiet, nurturing, and confidential environment, this workshop promotes reflection, clarity and insight. Dan guides experiences by core principles and practices, including the belief that everyone has an inner teacher: an inner source of truth. We will engage in contemplative practices to support personal and societal transformation.
Using seasonal themes and metaphors we explore poetry, prose, music, gentle guided movement, video, journaling, stories from various wisdom traditions, periods of silence and mindfulness meditation practices. We share periods of quiet self-reflection, and large and small group discussions, as well as much laughter and lightness. Lunch is included in the workshop cost.
