Courage to Live Authentically
January 13 - 15
This retreat is for anyone seeking renewal of personal identity, professional integrity and vocational vitality, awakening that which changes our lives from within. Over the past decade under the guidance of Parker J. Palmer, highly skilled facilitators have created a unique retreat-based approach to such renewal.
Circle of Trust retreats - such as this Courage to Live Authentically retreat - are described in Palmer’s book, A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey toward an Undivided Life.
This retreat is offered by popular demand. At a similar recent retreat participants encouraged us to provide another such opportunity. Here's what participants had to say ...
"I stand in wonder and awe at the deep trust that was created by this program's content. Nice blend of community and individual space."
"I so appreciated and resonated with the grace that was demonstrated by both facilitators. It created such a loving space to be able to breathe authentically."
"It was exactly right - the pace and content were excellent."
"This retreat felt so spacious and welcoming. My soul felt safe & honored."
"Comfy beds, beautiful campus, especially like the Islands of Silence wlk in the mornings. The chitter of hummingbirds was a delight."
This is one of our most valuable workshop “tools” for clergy and it’s back by popular demand!!
Now in its 10th year, Pastor Jerry Larson has taught this class in seminaries across the USA, changing the lives of pastors and lay leaders/speakers, who weekly prepare sermons and Bible studies for their congregations. This system enables them to deliver their sermons freely without reading a manuscript or simply speaking off the cuff.

With the sounds still ringing in your ears and the tastes fresh on your tongue, will you have had an opportunity celebrate Easter? Before you move on too quickly, we invite you to take some “Easter time” away and ponder:
- How could the disciples & the early church have forgotten what Jesus said so quickly?
- Why did they seem to need so many reminders of God’sgracious, life-giving power?
