  • How clear boundaries help protect energy, time and health.
  • How to shift the quality of your listening.
  • What BEING HEARD can do for you.

We begin in a large circle and set the tone. Then, small circle breakout rooms are built into the program for your engagement. After 90 minutes you return to the large circle to process and integrate the event, to reflect & share learning. This is more than a workshop. It's more than an experience. It's an awakening of a mindful & sustainable lifestyle practice!

"I appreciate the quick pace & variance between types of instructional strategies; the positive atmosphere; and how the Facilitator sought participation in a safe, non-threatening way" [from a FI-BOCC Program participant]

"The pace was graceful; I will treasure every moment spent in conversation, communion and active learning. This was truly a masters course squeezed into a few hours. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." [from A Pace of Grace Retreat]
