******Leadership Pilgrimage: A Program for Visionary Leaders 2021

March 25 – 27, 2021 June 24 – 26, 2021 Sept 16 – 18, 2021 All retreats are held at Canyon of the Eagles located in the Texas Hill Country. Program fee: $3,850/$3,465 (non-profits). Includes program materials, lodging, and meals.

As the foundation of Seton Cove’s leadership programs, the Leadership Pilgrimage provides leaders an opportunity to reflect on their personal identity and work through a year-long program that includes three retreats. These retreats are designed for the lives of busy professionals who generally don’t make time to renew their spirit and revitalize their understanding and practice of leadership.

Located in the Texas Hill Country, retreats are just far enough away to be accessible while still off the grid of daily life. Retreats are designed to be logistically feasible, beginning on Thursday afternoons and continuing through mid-day Saturday--striking the perfect balance between not missing too much work and not giving up an entire weekend.

The Leadership Pilgrimage mixes individual and group experiences that ultimately allow each person to slow down and regain awareness required to do "inner work" that modern life rarely enables. The use of personal stories, tales from the wisdom traditions, contemporary thinkers, and experiential exercises will facilitate individual reflection and group discussion.

Facilitators: Patricia Speier, D.Min & Joe Barry, MA

ONLINE: 2020 Summer Leadership Intensive: Moving from Coping to Transforming, Tension to Extension, and Controlling to Connection

Aug 13 (Th) 9:00am-12:00pm Presented virtually via Zoom $95 (Pre-registration required.)
Join Patty Speier and Joe Barry as they lead us through practices that will inspire and renew as we continue to lead through a time of pandemic and social unrest. These practices were developed by Dr. Ginny Whitelaw, who is a former biophysicist for NASA’s Space Station Program as well as a Zen Master in the line of Rinzai Zen. These practices will not only help you lead your team at work but also help you discern your role in bringing about beneficial change to our society.
