Navigating Change: A Free Circle of Trust® Program on April 8


Dear friends,

I have been asked several times over the past years to facilitate Circle of Trust experiences online. I have put off that request until now, as my life has remained busy with inspiring in-person workshops and retreats. Alas, that time to jump into online programs has arrived, due to this time of social disruption. In this current crisis, it has become apparent how essential it is to discover a way to meet together in a guided, meaningful and disciplined way. We need to be creative to develop safe spaces that honor our situation, as it is.

I invite you to consider this collection of online opportunities. I am glad to serve you with hosting and guiding these quiet moments to find ‘solitude in community’.

Be well and much love, Dan

Description:Guided by the Courage & Renewal® facilitator Dan Hines, you are invited to join this 60 minute free Zoom® Circle of Trust.In this time of pandemic and social disruption, the pace and demands of change are more than daunting. Navigating this turbulent ocean of dynamic weather and waves, we can lose track of where and we are. We can easily become lost. We are far off the edge of the map.A time of transition calls for the ancient knowledge of wayfinding: the art of awareness, inner wisdom and active attention. Whether we are facing health challenges, fear for our vocations, a shift in our relationships, the process of aging, or in rediscovering our identity, we can join others to gain enhanced navigational skills. We can find our way to journey toward wholeness and authentic living in the midst of ambiguity and complexity.In this Circle of Trust free offering of an hour, a safe and quiet space is provided by intentional small group practices of deep listening, evocative imagery, poetry, music, and by the art of giving and receiving open questions. These practices are facilitated by Dan Hines. The small group practices are informed by the work of the well-respected social thinker, educator and writer Parker J. Palmer.The Circle of Trust approach is distinguished by principles and practices intended to create a process of shared exploration where people can find safe space to nurture integrity and the courage to respond. This approach has the power to transform individuals, families, workplaces and communities.

Ongoing Circles:This 60 minute experience is intended as an introduction to the practices of a Circle of Trust. Following these initial offerings, an ongoing more intimate program is being offered. These are smaller groups of committed learners who will support one another in a deeper exploration. The circles will gather on the Zoom platform for four weekly sessions of 90 minutes duration. The cost to register is $60.00 CAD. You can find the links to register on Dan’s website:

One Day Retreat:On Saturday, April 4, 2020, Dan will facilitate a full day Zoom® retreat (9 am-4pm): “Wayfinding: The Voyage to Wholeness”. The cost is $75.00 CAD. You can find the link to register on Dan’s website:
