******Leadership Pilgrimage: A Program for Visionary Leaders 2019

February 7-9, 2019 June 6-8, 2019 September 12-14, 2019 All retreats are held at Canyon of the Eagles located in the Texas Hill Country. Program fee: $3,650/$3,290 (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

Love is the Foundation of Everything: A Lenten Quiet Day in the Texas Hill Country

Mar 14 (Th) 9am–4pm Location: Juniper Hills, 5818 Farm to Market 165, Dripping Springs, TX 78620 $125 (Includes lunch and snacks. Pre-registration required.)

“I am more and more seeing that Love, God and Consciousness are the same thing. They are the substratum of reality. Teilhard de Chardin says, ‘The structural shape of the universe is love.’”
~Richard Rohr

Please join me for this quiet day at the beginning of Lent in the peaceful Hill Country. Take a day to focus on what it really means for us to say “God is Love.” We will use Richard Rohr’s Essential Teachings on Love, as our inspiration for this day of silence, contemplative prayer, journaling and contemplative walks in nature. Lent is an appropriate time for us to remember, as Rohr reminds us, that “The most powerful, most needed, and most essential teaching is always about Love.”
