Kirstin Anglea

Mentoring Program Coordinator
Speaks English

Kirstin is first and foremost, a seeker, a wonderer…on a continuous journey of being and becoming. Her greatest joy is capturing small moments of beauty in one-on-one conversations, the powerful rhythm of a good tune, paradox found in nature, and experimenting in the kitchen with family and friends. Other identities include mother, partner, and educator, and Unitarian. As an urban educator, she worked in Milwaukee, WI as a middle school teacher & administrator, a faculty member at the university level, and leader of a team of environmental educators at a local non-profit. She’s a certified coach and mentor thru Cardinal Stritch University and the New Teacher Center. Her work with the Center for Courage and Renewal began in the late 90’s. Transformed by this work, she was inspired to pursue her doctorate focused on Reflective Practice as a form of professional development. Kirstin has been a facilitator with the Center for Courage & Renewal since 2013. She leads Circle of Trust retreats in a variety of formats for all those yearning to live a life aligned with their authentic self. Specifically, she co-leads the following retreats: Soul of Aging, Elder Wisdom, Living in Alignment, Courage to Teach/Being Brave-Hearted retreats. Along with retreat facilitation, she works part-time as the district administrator of a sweet little school in the woods near her home in Sisters, OR. When not working, you’ll find her kayaking, wandering in the wilderness, or enjoying good food and a nice glass of wine with friends.
