Courage & Renewal Northeast

Many of us who are engaged in education, leadership, community service, health care and social change experienced a sense of calling that first brought us to our work, yet we know that staying connected to that call can be challenging. Sustaining our commitment to challenging work requires that we take time to renew our own spirits and reconnect with the wellsprings of our service to others.

Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal have created the unique Circle of Trust® Approach to renewing personal identity, professional integrity and vocational vitality. First developed with public school teachers as Courage to Teach®, this approach is now offered to a growing number of interested persons in other professions.

Courage & Renewal retreats and program provide opportunities, individually and in community, for personal and professional insight and growth. They give individuals time to reflect and re-charge; focus on pressing work and life questions; support others' personal and professional development; celebrate gifts and acknowledge limitations; practice deep listening; and find the courage to live in congruence with their values, sustain professional integrity, and help their communities do the same
