Courage & Renewal® programs and retreats help you bring your true self to your life’s work.
Over the past 20 years, tens of thousands of program participants from all walks of life have discovered the courage to live and lead with integrity. Educators, doctors, clergy, corporate executives, non-profit leaders, community organizers, and people just like you!
Join us and experience the Circle of Trust® approach, developed by writer, teacher and activist Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal.

Don’t ask yourself what
the world needs
Ask yourself what makes
you come alive
And then go do that
the world needs
Is people who have come alive.
