Those who truly love us will never knowingly ask us to be other than we are.

Courage to Teach Workshops focuses neither on technique, nor directly on school reform, but rather on renewing the inner lives of professionals in education.

Courage to Teach® programs help teachers:

  • Renew heart, mind, and spirit through the exploration of the inner landscape of a teacher’s life.

  • Reconnect to one’s identity and integrity—identifying and honoring gifts and strengths, and acknowledging limits.

  • Create a context for careful listening and deep connection that also honors diversity in person and profession.

  • Create safe spaces and trusting relationships in their schools, with their students and colleagues, and within their communities.

  • Explore the connection between attending to the inner life of educators and the renewal of public education.

Journey to the Undivided Life

We are living in ever changing and challenging times.  As a result we are often in transition, living life in unexpected ways.  We may be searching for our next step in life or simply feel disconnected from the passion that once fed us in our vocation.  You are invited to join with other individuals to come together to reflect, renew, and reconnect with the inner passion, courage and sense of purpose that gives meaning to your work and life in the world.

Supporting Teens/Children with Integrity

This workshop was designed specifically for those individuals who yearn for a healthy, supportive relationship with a teen (or child) they live with, work with, and/or love. The adult-teen relationship can be extremely challenging! How do we “show up” as our authentic selves that allows us to keep the lines of communication open with the children we value. How do you navigate this time in a teen's life with integrity, honoring the wholeness of both you and the child so they may grow into a whole, thriving adult? This workshop series will introduce participants to the Circle of Trust®️ principles and practices as a foundation for how we create relationships with teens that are supportive and respectful.

Soul of Aging

The Soul of Aging is a program based on the work of Parker Palmer and The Center for Courage and Renewal. It is for anyone interested in exploring the joys, challenges, and gifts of the aging process. We will create and hold a safe space in which we may seek a deeper understanding of how to age well, with dignity and integrity.
