The Activist as Mystic

A Courage & Renewal® Program

June 6 - 10, 2018

A ‘Circle of Trust’ experience based on the work of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal. Join us for an exploration into our shared ‘blessed unrest’: an informed, mystical, active and loving resistance to the world as it is. In the heart of the mystic and the activist, our response arises from this restless longing for a better world.

In a safe, quiet, nurturing, and confidential environment, we take time for reflection, clarity and insight. We are invited to slow down, listen and reflect in a quiet and focused space. At the same time, we engage in dialogue with others in the circle—a dialogue about things that matter. As this “sorting and sifting” goes on, and we are able to clarify and affirm our truth in the presence of others, that truth is more likely to overflow into our work and lives. Guided by core principles and practices, which include the belief that everyone has an inner teacher, an inner source of truth, we engage in contemplative practices to support personal and societal transformation.
