Kirkridge Retreat and Learning Center is located in the hill (some say mountains) of Bangor PA. I will be heading there on Tuesday to attend a Circles of Trust Retreat to learn more about Parker Palmer's philosophy on living an "Undivided life".
Here's the blurb explaining what this is all about:
This retreat is for anyone seeking ways to live an undivided life, to live with wholeness. It is for those who care about their community, their planet, and are seeking a place for personal renewal. It is for those who are troubled by injustice and violence and are struggling with their own sense of powerlessness. It is for those who, in Parker Palmer’s phrase, are experiencing “the politics of broken-hearted,” facing the seeming divisiveness in our democracy, and looking for ways of responding that are creative and life-giving. Taking Heart Once More is a Circle of Trust® retreat where we can explore our own most profound questions at the heart of our many roles, including the important role of citizen in a democracy. In this retreat skilled facilitators, who have worked with Parker J. Palmer and are prepared by the Center for Courage & Renewal, help create a quiet, focused, and disciplined space—a circle of trust—in which the noise within us and around us can subside and we can begin to hear our own inner voice.
Here's to open ears, a space to better hear and courage - yeah courage.
