Rather than give a traditional 45-minute talk followed by a Q and A, we ask that presenters circulate a paper of up to 10,000 words ten days before their workshop. Workshop attendees will have access to the papers through this website http://ruralissues.ext.unb.ca and a password protected link. Email dtubb@unb.ca for the password.

Rather than orally present the paper, we ask that each presenter take five-minutes to introduce and contextualize their contribution. Following this, a discussant will give their appreciation, critique, and commentary on the paper with the aim of raising issues and asking questions. From here, we will ask the presenter to remain silent, and listen as the workshop participants make their own interventions on the paper. Finally, the presenter will given the floor once again to answer the questions they found most compelling and to make further comments.

Courage to Lead for Young Leaders & Activists 2018
May
3
to May 5

Courage to Lead for Young Leaders & Activists 2018

Are you actively engaged in creating a more just, peaceful, and ecologically responsible world?   Are you passionate about your vocation or cause, but trying to sustain yourself in the midst of heavy demands and the urgency you feel about making a difference? This retreat is a rare opportunity for renewaldeeper connection with kindred spirits and committed peers, and the chance to explore questions of importance to you.
Courage & Renewal retreats help you become a more self-aware, wholehearted leader. You’ll experience the time and space to renew, reflect, and to:

  • Pause, be still, and disconnect from technology and the demanding pace of a leader’s life.
  • Seek clarity in your vocation and sense of purpose.
  • Honour both successes and struggles in your professional and personal life
  • Witness and be witnessed, listen and be listened to – without performance evaluation, statusizing, or ego.
  • Strengthen your capacity to ask open-ended questions, hold tensions, and rejoin soul and role

At the retreat, thirty young leaders and activists (ages 25-40) will journey together by engaging in large-and small-group dialogues focused on evocative texts and questions. Over the course of three days, there will be opportunities to explore the intersection of your inner capacity and authenticity as it relates to life, leadership, and activism. There will be time for stillness, solitude, and journaling for reflection, to help unearth clarity and courage and bring meaning and resiliency to your life and leadership. This retreat is modeled on the Circle of Trust® approach developed by Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal. For the past six years, these Young Leaders and Activists retreats have been offered in the United States drawing international cohorts. Tatamagouche Centre is pleased to partner with the Center for Courage & Renewal to host the retreat for the first time in Canada.  You can learn more about “Circles of Trust” at www.couragerenewal.org/approach or in Parker Palmer’s book, A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward an Undivided Life. Program Cost: $500 (tuition, meals & lodging). Participation is based on an application. To apply for this program click here.

THRIVE Nova Scotia Conference

THRIVE is an experiment in "just doing it." It began with a few people dreaming of an event that would capture the energy and possibilities that are alive in the province right now. Nova Scotians from across networks, communities and walks of life would come together for four days—enough time to get below the surface of our challenges, share stories and inspiration, pick up new tools, and listen to what the future is calling for.

We are a network of diverse people and partners who are passionate about our communities and concerned about the future. We believe it is time to think bigger, look deeper, and act smarter. Our goal is to thrive—not just survive—as we take steps towards a future that works for all. See more details here: www.thrivenovascotia.ca
