In this time of gentle spirit-tending based on the work of Parker Palmer, the group will create a Circle of Trust, learn honest and open questions, and help “hear each other into deeper speech.”

Each day the group will engage in two sessions based on dynamic geographic themes, such as Mountain Edges, Forest Community, and Water and Release. Poetry, images, and essays provoke our thoughts and help us access our Inner Teachers. Journal prompts lead us to write or draw freely following our hearts. Touchstones create safe space and shape our sharing, which is always by invitation, not demand. The approach is spiritual and respectful of each person’s beliefs. Bring an open spirit.

The schedule will also allow free time for hiking, fishing, reading, walking the labyrinth, and other creative endeavors…all in the healing context of the forest. This is a soul-nourishing retreat.

Here’s what people have said about this experience:

“In Geography of Grace I found fellow travelers, who travel a similar life journey. I learned that I don’t have to have all the answers. I can learn more about myself by listening to others, who then help me to listen to my inner soul.”

“I am amazed how Geography of Grace elicits the trust in folks to share really difficult things in their lives. And I appreciate their “holding space” for me in their patient silence, thoughtful questions, and confidentiality.”

Leader: Cathy Barker, who is trained by the Center for Courage and Renewal. She has led Geography of Grace over 30 times, and she has written many sessions. She has a large following, and many participants return again and again for her Circle of Trust retreats and courses.
