The Whisper of the Heart

"In the stillness of quiet, if we listen, we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair." ~Howard Thurman

Join us for this in-person Circle of Trust® Retreat as we explore practices that honor the whispers of our heart and recognize the courageous turnings that empower action.

During this retreat we will:

  • Explore and embrace the Touchstones to create a mutually supportive and generative community
  • Learn healthy ways to embrace paradox and hold tension in life-giving ways
  • Offer personal space to hear our soul, our inner teacher
  • Welcome the community’s wisdom in small and large groups
  • Gently hold each other as we experience a path for discernment
  • Enjoy meeting other people on their individual and communal journey

All of the great spiritual traditions want to awaken us to the fact that we cocreate the reality in which we live. And all of them ask two questions intended to help keep us awake: What are we sending from within ourselves out into the world, and what impact is it having “out there”? What is the world sending back at us, and what impact is it having “in here”?

~Parker J. Palmer, A Hidden Wholeness
