As a business professional, we know your responsibilities often feel insurmountable. We understand how many plates you spin to lead your employees, your families, and your lives well. We also know that in order to lead effectively and authentically, you need space to find spiritual depth and centeredness. The Seton Cove is an interfaith spirituality Center offering retreats and seminars designed to guide you into a more vivid self-awareness and spiritual maturity. Our Leadership Pilgrimage is a culmination of three retreats that allows you to work on your personal identity, find the centeredness you crave and strengthen your leadership development.
What is the Leadership Pilgrimage?
In this year-long program, leaders from various company sizes and all walks of faith, have the opportunity to slow down and access the “inner ways of knowing” essential to effective leadership. These “inner ways of knowing” allow you to lead both creatively and wholeheartedly, avoiding burnout and managing the line internal values and external responsibilities. The pilgrimage provides time for individual reflection and group discussion from the presented material including personal stories, contemporary thinkers, wisdom tradition, and experiential exercises. By the end of your pilgrimage, you will better understand the qualities of contemplative mindfulness, how to lead from a balanced place, and how the mind, body, and spirit work within you.
The master teachers and program facilitators are Patricia Speier and Joe Barry. The Executive Director of the Seton Cove, Patricia Speier, is a director and teacher who specializes in the use of literature for spiritual growth and ethical development. As the founder of the Leadership Pilgrimage, she is passionate about the connection between spirituality and leadership. Joe has over twenty-five years of experience teaching adults leadership development and spiritual formation, leading group facilitation and meditation, and management consulting. His vast experience also spans leaders of all levels of organizations.
Is The Leadership Pilgrimage For Me?
If your schedule does not provide the opportunity for rest and renewal, this program is for you. Each retreat gives you space and time to “renew your spirit and revitalize your understanding and practice of leadership.” As a leader, you understand the value in your own centeredness. The seasons when you feel most connected to your spirituality are most likely the seasons you are most effective as a leader. The Leadership Pilgrimage confirms the gifts you bring to your leadership and aims to strengthens your identity and integrity so that you can lead authentically. As you grow in your commitment to contemplative practices, you will lead from within rather than lead from external circumstances. This program teaches you the skills you need for spiritual depth and mindfulness.
