The Circle of Trust experience called “The Soul of Aging” is for people who long to gently explore, understand, and be transformed by the aging process. The themes reflect aspects of this life season, including forgiveness, yearnings, time, serving others, and befriending one’s own death. The approach is spiritual and respectful of each person’s beliefs. The experience requires an open spirit and honest sharing.   

 The Circle of Trust approach is based on the pioneering work of Parker Palmer. Participants create a safe, confidential, and sacred space where people support each other in accessing the voice of their Inner Teacher. Essays, poetry, and images inspire journaling and self-discovery. Touchstones guide the way. With honest, open questions, everyone has the opportunity to listen deeply to the others as well as to their own soul. 

The schedule will also allow free time for hiking, fishing, reading, resting, and other creative endeavors; a labyrinth for walking meditation, trails for short walks or long ones, campfires for singing – all are in the healing context of the forest. This is a soul-nourishing retreat. 

 Here’s what people have said about this experience:  

 “Everyone needs to experience this kind of retreat, to refill their soul, to slow down and reflect on their lives, to come away with a better, clearer understanding, to be connected with oneself!”  

 “My inner teacher is there, I just need an avenue to get to my soul and hear his voice. The Soul of Aging is amazing in how it allows me access to listen to him. “ 

Leader: Cathy Barker, who is trained by the Center for Courage and Renewal. She has led The Soul of Aging over 20 times because she loves it and believes in the power of this transformative work!
