The Journey to Wholeness: A Courage & Renewal Exploration at Hollyhock

As we emerge from recent years of uncertainty and pandemic, we can rediscover our whole selves. We can bring together our soul and roles.

There is a longing to live wholeheartedly.
Our world needs those who know who they are.

As we emerge from recent years of uncertainty and pandemic, we can rediscover our true selves. We can bring together our soul and role. When we overcome the divisions within us, our relationships, work and society benefit from our clarity and authentic presence.

Guided by Dan and Robyn Hines, who have facilitated retreats for thousands of participants, we will explore the Circles of Trust lineage of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal. It is a proven, safe and disciplined way of being together. In these wise spaces, some principles and practices create a trustworthy, brave space of attention, imagination, and confidential conversations.

Each morning, Robyn guides embodied practices of yoga, breathwork and meditation to help integrate the fullness of our individual and collective learning. As well, we will experience Clearness Committees, a disciplined two hour discernment process: arising from the early Quakers. In this process a person who longs for clarity – transitional, vocational, relational, or spiritual – has an opportunity to be the “focus person” while a prepared “committee” of others listens and asks open questions.

This retreat is for those who:

-Need a guided retreat space for rest, renewal and reorientation
-Are in the process of making a life decision and seek inner wisdom
-Enjoy integrating soulful self learning with yoga, meditation and body awareness
-Value the teaching of Parker J. Palmer and the Circle of Trust process
-Yearn for living with a whole heart and in greater alignment with their true self.

Morning and afternoon program sessions with ample time for hikes, swimming, kayaking, yoga, hot tub etc.

Hollyhock creates, curates and hosts meaningful programs to inspire personal growth for social transformation.
