Series: Learning from the Seasons @ Santa Teresa Spirituality Centre

Series description:

This series of four one-day seasonal retreats provides time and space for personal and collective reflection. Discover your inner capacity to lead a more authentic, meaningful and resilient life. These programs will help you find the clarity and courage to bring your true self to your life’s work.

Our lives move in cycles like the seasons. By using metaphors drawn from the seasons to frame our exploration of the inner life, your skilled Courage & Renewal facilitator will create a hospitable space that allows people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives to engage in a respectful dialogue. These metaphors represent cycles of life—such as the alternation of darkness and light, death and new life—shared by everyone in a secular, pluralistic society regardless of philosophical, religious or spiritual differences. Through the lens of the seasons, we are encouraged to embrace life in all its complexity. We’ll use poetry, journaling, silence and shared conversation to guide our reflections.

The Circle of Trust approach is based on the work of writer, teacher and activist Parker J. Palmer. It offers safe space for self-reflection and shared exploration. This retreat is for you if you are looking to develop your capacity and courage to lead a more authentic, meaningful and engaged life that is aligned with your inner values.

Attend any single day for $150 ($125 early bird)
