Braving Your Way through Life Transitions

Registration for this event has now closed.

This hand-curated, small cohort-based transformational program explores issues of transition, vocation, passion, life purpose, meaning, direction, and underlying life patterns to live in greater alignment with your deepest values, to listen to your own inner wisdom, and to reconnect who you are with what you do. The program attends to your body and soul, providing a safe and sheltered space to slow down and nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to lean into wise action. Guided by core principles and practices, which include the belief that everyone has an inner teacher, an inner source of truth, the program engages contemplative practices to support personal and societal development.

Listening to your inner voice, the program provides time to reflect individually and in small groups, share stories, laughter, music, and video and gain insights from journaling, poetry, and from various wisdom traditions.  The capstone of the program is a version of Quaker process of spiritual discernment called the Clearness Committee to support your transition through difficult life or vocational choices and dilemmas.  

As you connect who you are with what you do and how you act, you touch the seeds of transformation already planted in your life.  Joining with others in this life-changing program invites movement toward greater self-awareness, greater wholeness, and greater justice and social equity in society.

Sessions will be held on October 11, November 8, and December 6th from 7 to 9 pm ET/4 to 6 pm PT.
