What would you do with more courage? What might it take to cultivate it?
This experiential workshop is a taster of the Circle of Trust ® approach
developed by writer, educator and activist, Parker J. Palmer and the Center for
Courage &Renewal. Together we will co-create a space for honest dialogue
and non-judgmental listening, practicing particular ways of relating that will
help us be more present with ourselves and others. Prompted by evocative
texts, there will be time for individual reflection and journaling as well as large
and small-group dialogues in which our own stories can be shared. These
processes offer the opportunity to gain clarity around the questions we are
holding in relation to our lives and leadership. They also deepen the self-
knowledge that begets trust (in ourselves and others), which in turn begets the
courage to act on what matters most.
