*The Practice of Contemplative Leadership 2017: Developing the Skills of Spiritual Intelligence in order to Become a Transformative Leader

"Spiritual Intelligence is the central and most fundamental of all the intelligences because it becomes the source of guidance for the others."
- Stephen Covey

In this series of six day-long retreats we will examine the 21 skills of spiritual intelligence as set forth by Cindy Wigglesworth in her book SQ 21: The Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence. Cindy defines spiritual intelligence as “the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion, while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation.” The virtues of wisdom, compassion and equanimity are essential to becoming a fully-developed free-functioning human being and they are what make good leaders great leaders. We will practice the skills that move us in the direction of wisdom, compassion and equanimity and as always our practices will draw on the wisdom of poets, mystics and sages of all traditions.
Participants will have the opportunity to take the SQ21 inventory if they so desire.

Healing the Heart of Democracy Action Circle

"It’s possible that after cultivating Palmer’s five habits of the heart, participants will emerge from the circles with a better understanding of their own beliefs, more confident to discuss them with people holding different views, and more prepared to act on the five habits in their daily lives.” -Deanne Stone

In his book Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit, Parker Palmer introduces Five Habits of the Heart necessary to heal our democracy and work together for the common good. In order to put these habits into action Palmer has developed a curriculum for action circles that will meet for ongoing dialogue. In each meeting you will do two things: (1) discuss your experiences reflecting on and experimenting with the habit of the heart that was introduced in the previous meeting, and (2) discuss a new habit of the heart to focus on for the month ahead.
At the end of a bitterly divisive presidential election, these circles offer us a way to mend our spirits and move forward on paths that can heal us and move us toward each other in relationships that can be both renewing and transformative.
