Our retreats are an opportunity to step away from the compression of day-to-day work and connect with other leaders addressing similar inquiries, the big questions that we need to address on behalf of our organizations and global systems. Context extraordinary retreat environments in Europe and North America support renewal and resilience, so that participating leaders can return to their place of influence with clarity and presence.
As stand alone programs or as part of broader change initiatives, our customized programs use an Action Inquiry framework to powerfully support individual, team, team and organizational growth. The result is greater personal integrity, collaborative use of power, and the ability to continuously transform in response to emerging realities.

The times we live in seem full of promise for women of all ages. Yet at each stage of our personal and professional lives we discover fresh questions and uncertainties that ask something of us. What do we pay attention to as our intuition edges us toward our potential? Where are our sources of energy and direction? In what ways can other women guide us?

This program invites you into:
- conversations that uncover the thoughts and emotions that are guiding you,

- artistic practice that opens your imagination to the future,
- embodiment exercises that cultivate a more powerful presence, and
- self-assessment that helps you identify practical next steps.
