Through a variety of heart-inspiring essays, poetry, art, nature, photography, and music, you will be invited to engage in honest self-reflection and to increase your capacity to listen to yourself and to others more deeply.
“Anytime we can listen to true self and give it the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.” – Parker J. Palmer
Join us for this Introductory Courage to Teach® Circle of Trust® weekend as we greet our inner teacher and listen closely to that wise inner voice so that we may better live and work in our identity and integrity. Everyone is welcome, regardless of previous Circle of Trust experience.

Through a variety of heart-inspiring essays, poetry, art, nature, photography, and music, you will be invited to engage in honest self-reflection and to increase your capacity to listen to yourself and to others more deeply. There will be time in solitude and in community and time to speak from your heart and to listen as others speak from theirs. Return home with renewed energy and a revitalized spirit.
In a time when stress and pressure on teachers and administrators continue to rise because of internal and external demands, Courage to Teach® provides educators with an opportunity for rest, renewal and re-engagement with their identity and integrity as teachers. The program, originally conceived by esteemed educator Parker J. Palmer, offers educators an opportunity to reflect on the inner dimensions of teaching and leading.
