Group Sessions

Dan offers group sessions in leadership, personal and professional development and spiritual growth: online and in-person. He uses the Circle of Trust approach, which is distinguished by principles and practices intended to create a process of shared exploration. It is a space where people can find trust to nurture their personal and professional integrity and to find the courage to act on it. This way of being together has the power to transform individuals, families, workplaces and communities.


Here are some of Dan’s upcoming sessions:


The journey to wholeness:
A Courage & Renewal exploration
on Bowen Island

 (with Dan & Robyn Hines)

There is a yearning in us for living wholeheartedly.

As each of us emerges from these years of uncertainty, flux, and pandemic, we can come together to discover our true selves.
We can learn how to bring together soul and role: to experience an undivided life.

The retreat is guided by Dan and Robyn, who have facilitated Circles for thousands of participants. The lineage and wisdom of Parker Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal provide a way of being together. Each morning, Robyn guides embodied practices of yoga, breathwork and meditation to help integrate the fullness of our shared learning.
