Geography of Grace
A Courage and Renewal Retreat

  Lead by Valerie Brown, JD, MA, PCC (read more)

Based on the work of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal, this retreat explores issues of clergy leadership to live in greater alignment with your deepest values, to listen to Christ within and to your own inner wisdom, and to reconnect who you are with what you do.  The retreat provides a safe and sheltered space to slow down and to nurture personal and congregational integrity, and the courage to lean into action.  Guided by core principles and practices, which include the belief that everyone has an inner teacher, an inner source of truth, the retreat engages contemplative practices to support personal and societal transformation.
