The Geography of Grace curriculum was developed by the Center for Courage and Renewal. Melissa Ebken and Molly Grisham are both trained facilitators of this curriculum. We are offering a 3-hour introductory session on July 29th called “Night Sky.”

We will use various materials and methods to invite participants to listen to how their own inner teacher is guiding them. The curriculum will utilize the circle of trust approach to provide a safe and confidential environment for sharing. All that is shared is by invitation rather than demand, which will provide participants the freedom to grow in their own ways. Drawing upon the work of Parker Palmer, Geography of Grace provides an opportunity to heal whatever brokenness we experience through finding a hidden wholeness within.

Who should attend?
Geography of Grace was designed for adults of any or no faith tradition, who want to truly listen to their life.

What can I expect?
Our process will be both creative and Introspective while we explore how to live out of a place of courage and wholeness. You will experience a sense of community and mutual support while we seek to be fully present with others in such a way that we listen deeply to our own inner voice and give space for others to find and listen to theirs.

What are the next steps? Please RSVP using EventBrite (search “Geography of Grace” or see URL below). The cost of attendance is $35. This will include snacks & all supplies needed for the day.

“My participation in workshops and retreats with the Center for Courage and Renewal has been a powerful force in my life. Each time I walk away with a much deeper sense of self and clarity about the ways my life is speaking to me. I am thrilled that we can share this process with others.” Molly Grisham
