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:

Hope in the dark:
A Courage & Renewal retreat



 (with Dan Hines and Paula Cornell)

In these tumultuous and tragic times, it is easy to believe that our situation is hopeless, that we have no power, and that there is no action we can take that is big enough or meaningful enough to confront the forces of climate change, war, racism, and injustice.

What is hope, and how do we hold on to it? What reasons are there to hope in the midst of tragedy, suffering, and destruction? Is hope a necessary part of social movements for positive change?

This in-person Circle of Trust offering is based on the work of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal as well as on the Rebecca Solnit book, “Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities”. Using themes from this book as a starting place, we will use the tools of poetry, art, silence, individual reflection, and group dialogue to examine the role of hope as a sustaining force in our personal and professional lives.
