Courage & Renewal Practicum – (April/May 2023)

Deepen your engagement with the values, principles, and practices of the Courage & Renewal approach, gaining knowledge and insights on how to bring these ways of being and perceiving more fully into your own life while expanding your capacity to influence and transform the communities and institutions you care about.

Building on knowledge gained in the Foundations program, the Courage & Renewal Practicum invites you to deepen your engagement with the Courage & Renewal approach and integrate these ways of being more fully in your life and relationships. Alongside a supportive learning community, you’ll gain knowledge and insights on how to bring these ways of being and perceiving more fully into your life, expanding your capacity to influence and transform the communities and institutions you care about.

Through our deeper engagement with the core values, principles and practices in the Practicum, we kindle our ongoing formation and commitment to live as fully as possible out of our own identity and integrity in the many different aspects of our lives, while honoring the same in others.

 

Program Structure & Content

During a 4-day online retreat you are invited to take a deeper dive into the Courage & Renewal approach through a focused exploration of its concepts and practices and how they interface with your life and work.

How might you use the Courage & Renewal approach as a lens through which you view the world and your life in it? How might the practices and values of Courage & Renewal meaningfully impact your relationships, communities, and/or workplaces?

Together during the retreat we will delve into questions and insights about:

  • Strengthening the connection between our inner and outer lives
  • Developing deep listening practices that enable connection with our inner teacher and help us support others in seeking their own clarity
  • Recognizing the value and honing the skills of using open, honest questions
  • Exploring different modes of reflection that invite new insights
  • Living the Courage & Renewal approach as a path towards life-giving liberation, and alternative to cultures of oppression and violence
  • Integrating these practical tools and ways of being that cultivate trustworthy relationships and acknowledge others’ identity and integrity in ways that support their wholeness

Upon completion of the Practicum retreat, participants will join a five-session online peer learning community to explore the benefits and challenges of further deepening and integrating the Courage & Renewal core values, principles and practices.

Practicum participants will also be invited to join the Practitioner Learning Community – a community of practice for Practicum alumni who wish to continue supporting one another in further learning and growth.

Scholarship funding is available to help lower financial barriers thanks to generous underwriting from individuals and foundations interested in supporting people’s journey toward wholeness.

We have a limited amount of scholarship funding that we can offer. The amount of financial assistance provided is based on funds available, your requested need, and the requests of other participants. We typically offer assistance to partially offset tuition costs.

We are very intentional about separating the program application review process from the scholarship award determinations. Your financial circumstances are never taken into consideration when deliberating about your acceptance into a program. After you’ve been accepted to the program, we review your scholarship application and consider financial assistance allocations. We will inform you of the scholarship amount provided at least one month before the program start date, and likely earlier depending on the program.

If for any reason you need to cancel your registration, you must do so by sending an email to Taylor Culliver at taylor@couragerenewal.org. If you cancel your registration 30 days or more prior to the program start date you will receive a full refund minus the $150 non-refundable deposit. Between 30 days and 14 days prior to the start date you will receive a 50% refund minus the $150 non-refundable deposit. Refunds will not be granted within 2 weeks of the program start date. Extraordinary circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis. All refund requests must be made by you, the registrant.
