Courage and Renewal for Caregivers
an Online Monthly Retreat


Wednesdays, 9:30am to 12pm via Zoom on Oct. 11, Nov. 8, Dec. 13, Jan. 10, Feb. 14, Mar. 13


This series is designed to support anyone who finds themselves in the role of caregiver.  How do we uphold our needs for wholeness, balance, well-being, and integrity when deeply involved in the care of others?


This Circle of Trust® retreat is a small-group program based on the work of Dr. Parker Palmer and The Center for Courage & Renewal.  Courage and Renewal for Caregivers invites anyone, regardless of age, to openly explore the challenges and gifts of your life as you are living it now.  This six-part (2.5 hours per day over six days) online retreat provides a special opportunity for those who want to find new insights and fresh, life-giving ways to engage with the world. We will create and hold a safe space in which we may seek a deeper understanding of how we already have within us what we need to live sustainably, with dignity and integrity.

This monthly retreat time offers:

a space to renew the heart, mind, and spirit through the exploration of the inner landscape of one’s life

time to reconnect to one’s identity and integrity; identifying and honoring gifts & strengths, and acknowledging our limits.

a process to strengthen one’s self-awareness, with the help of others

a space to deepen our conversation with ourselves, through tangible practices and specific guidelines

a group in which powerful inquiry about the spiritual life can happen in a safe and confidential context

an opportunity to practice deep listening and respectful speaking which can ultimately infiltrate and strengthen one’s life beyond the group

a counter-culture approach to the problem solving, analytical, fast-paced world we often find ourselves in.

The fee for the series is $240.00. Sliding-Scale pay option available.
