News and Upcoming Events

Whole Communities is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Whole Thinking in Practice Retreat at The Toll House at Bell Valley Farm in Boonville, CA, September 29, 2015-October 3, 2015!

This retreat is designed for alumnae/i from CWC’s Whole Thinking and Whole Measures Retreats but is also open to those interested in incorporating transformative practice into their organizations and communities. We will build our skills in leadership, relationship-building, collaboration and communication - with plenty of time and space to connect with the land and our own core values.

We will collectively engage in and reflect upon core Whole Thinking Practices like Story, Awareness, Conscious Conversation (or Dialogue), and Working with Difference. There will be opportunities for self-organized learning, sessions to practice facilitation, and time and space to connect to the land at Bell Valley in creative and restorative ways.
