Retreats and Workshops

“Virtue is not left to stand alone.  He who practices it will have neighbors.” –Confucius 

Our retreats and workshops are used to facilitate a variety of team needs.  We specialize in addressing burnout, demoralization and distress, as well as building resilience, energy, creativity, and hope.  Hosting your retreat here at our studio, located in beautiful downtown Iowa City, or with organizations throughout the midwest, we bring our fundamental commitment to active listening, direct communication, and creative problem-solving to our facilitation and teaching work.
