A Spring Circle of Trust®
Transition & Change

Saturday, April 13
9:30 –11:30 am EDT


It marks the transition from the cold, dormant winter months to the warmer, more active season ahead. It also offers us the opportunity and inspiration to reflect on the transitions and changes happening in our lives. It is the perfect time to be discerning your choices and renewing your spirit so that you can keep showing up for the communities and causes you care for.

Join us for this in-person session where we’ll still the noise inside and out and make space for contemplation and gentle conversations.

We’ll offer images and texts to spark reflection and open fresh perspective. It will be time to focus on what matters most to you and to discern how you may navigate the transitions on your path with resilience and integrity.

The Centre for Social Innovation – Annex is an accessible and welcoming venue, easily reached by public transit.


An online Circle of Trust®

Sunday, May 5, 2024
10:30 am – 11:45 am EST


It’s a way to come to life that opens possibility.

Wonder lets us see the beauty and wisdom in everyday objects and encounters. It helps us find fresh perspective and understanding in troubling situations.

It can renew our spirit.

During this retreat we’ll ponder:

  • How we can access and sustain wonder in our lives?
  • What can wonder give us?

We’ll pause for meditation and engage with short texts for inspiration. We’ll take time off-screen for quiet, individual reflection and join a partner to listen to our own and each other’s wisdom. We’ll work with the online setting in a balanced and purposeful way. Courage & Renewal Touchstones will provide guidelines to support a welcoming, protected and confidential space.

We invite you to join us for 75 minutes to slow down and hear the wisdom emerging from your own heart. 

Pay What You Can
