About the Event

A short retreat to gather with others in ministry and to reflect, re-align and to rest in order to re-engage.

Your guide throughout the programme will be Di Murray who will provide the “container, content and containment” over this 3 day experiential learning program. We will be working with the core values underpinning the ComingUp4Air model- Curiosity, Compassion and Courage. Participants will have the opportunity to dig deep into their sense of “who I am” and how this impacts on their leadership. We will work both indoors and out; individually, in small groups and in one collective learning circle. We will use tools of deep listening, journaling and creative practices, inviting an openness to slowing down and sensing self.

Included in the programme:

  • Accommodation
  • Food
  • Travel
  • Copy of ‘Daring to Lead’ – sent ahead of programme
  • Copy of ‘Emotional Agility’ – sent ahead of programme
  • Facilitated learning programme

Ahead of the retreat resources will be distributed giving you the opportunity to read them prior to the programme. ‘Daring to Lead’ will be sent when you book your place; then in spring / summer we will send out ‘Emotional Agility’. These will form the basis of the core concepts and there will be opportunity to share our learning in order to deepen our understanding of “who I am is how I lead” throughout the programme. Before the programme, investigate your resource, make some notes and be ready to give feedback to your group (5- 10 mins max.) around the question: “What does this resource mean for my sense of who I am and how I lead?
