Holding the Thread in Turbulent Times

Thursday 7 March
14:30-17:30 (UK time)

A winter sun shining through frosty twigs

It’s hard not to feel lost, drained, or diminished from the effort of holding on in stormy times. This session will help you find your way back from your weathered self to your foundational self and to connect with your anchors and resources within.

This is a stand-alone session and also a good ‘taster’ of the Circle of Trust approach in advance of a residential retreat that we are hoping to offer later in the year.

Led by Facilitators prepared by the Center for Courage & Renewal, we will:

  • Work within the Touchstones for creating Trustworthy Space https://couragerenewal.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/CCR_Touchstones_V5.pdf
  • Slow down and make space to come back to our whole selves and reconnect with the deeper threads in our inner and outer lives – and in so doing replenish our energy and strengthen our ground.
  • Work with poetry, prose, images and evocative questions to lead us into deeper conversation with our inner teacher.
  • Move in and out of individual and shared inquiry with personal reflection and journaling, deep listening in small groups and brief sharing in the whole group.
  • Introduce and support you through this respectful way of working.

If this way of working appeals to you, you may also be interested in our second half-day retreat using the ‘Courage and Renewal’ approach: Resilience and Renewal in Turbulent Times
